    Excellent.

    I grew up with a borderline mother. This book really helps you understand the illogical thinking that goes behind a borderline's brain. I've found it extremely helpful. And no, you're NOT the one who's crazy....don't ever let a borderline parent tell you that are you because you might just end up believing it. They're the ones with issue. Just exercise distance from your parent and refuse to tolerate anymore antagonistic behavior from them. Trust me, you'll be saner in no time.

    Very Practical and Supportive

    This book was very helpful to me as an adult child of a borderline parent. It gave me validation, the secure sense that I was not going crazy through all this time of the tough experiences in this relationship with my mother. Reading the book was like I had told someone what I went through and they were talking to me about it. The exercises are very practical if you have the time to follow them. The only suggestion I would have for the authors would be a set of recommendations for how to connect with other family members who are not 'target' of the BPD behavior. Another aspect that would be helpful is to how to help a sibling that is going through this challenge, overcome the difficulties a BPD parent can cause to them and how they see life. Despite these two things not being part of the book, it is still a great work, a quick read, and understanding of where the adult child of a borderline parent is coming from. Also helpful for spouses of the adult children, to better understand them.

    Therapy aid

    As a therapist, I have found this book to be particularly beneficial to the clients that I work with who have had abusive caregivers growing up. One client told me it helped her 'more than the Bible.'
