    Real help for families

    This book is the antidote for all of the misinformation, bad advice and tough love literature you'll find in bookstores, the web and in the offices of mental health professionals. Valerie Porr writes in a clear, concise manner and never talks down to the reader. By describing what is happening in the brains of people with BPD, Porr helps the reader to understand that the illness has a biological basis. Ms. Porr then shows how this neurological disorder causes the person with BPD to suffer and explains why they act in ways that SEEM to be manipulative and despicable, but are actually reactions to their own personal suffering.

    Finally, and most importantly, Ms. Porr offers the reader a plan to help the person they love to change. This is a book about being compassionate and effective. If you follow its prescriptions, it will not only help you change the life of someone you know who is suffering from a terrible illness, it will change your life too.

    Amazing book, I am going to buy a copy for my exhusband . Best practices for recovery.

    This book is amazing and gives me hope. First I started to learn all I could about this disorder and I became discouraged. Next I decided to learn as much as I can about the recovery process and how to move forward.

    This book is the best I've seen in regards to both increasing my understanding of the condition and how to manage this condition.
    I am truely grateful for this resource.
