The author makes effective use of case studies to illustrate both the circumstances that may lead to BPD and specific approaches for addressing BPD thinking and behavior in men. The book is written so that it is helpful for both the man with BPD and those surrounding him, especially partners and spouses.
Hard to Love is hopeful in the sense that it considers BPD on a spectrum and offers suggestions for changing negative beliefs and behaviors in cases where that may be possible. "Hard to love" is different from "impossible to love" and the author is clear about that distinction. I recommend reading this in conjunction with the NEW edition of I Hate You - Don't Leave Me, another book that offers a hopeful, strategy-oriented approach to dealing with BPD.
