This is the second book I have read on the subject that combines research with the realities of the disorder. The first book was Randi Kreger's "Stop Walking on Eggshells." I found it very easy to identify BP behavior as a result of reading this book, The "professional lingo" was elucidated by concrete examples. Suggestions for the non- BP were concrete. I would have like to have read more specific practice exercises. More suggestions for those closely related non-BP's who do not live in the same household with the BP would have been helpful. The suggestions at the end of the book were very poignant. But how do you stop your heart from from feeling the pain?

This 41-page sample is USELESS as a guide for determining whether one might want to purchase this book. The sample is 41 pages of references to other authors, this authors repetitious thanking his family, friends and other mental health colleagues for their individual and collective support while this book was written. There was no example from the books content to offer some insight as to the authors' style and focus regarding any issues confronting people wanting guidance related to coping with BPD. You'll do just as well by flipping a coin and calling 'heads-yes or tails-no' as you would by reading this sample when it comes to deciding whether - or not - that you'll buy this book.

I learned a lot from this book as my first introduction into Borderline Personality Disorder, so the book is useful. However, I did have the following issues with it: 1. Examples/quotes were repeated in the book - it would have been better to always have different stories than repeating the same stories multiple times. 2. I bought the NOOK version, and the tables were unreadable. I had to install NOOK on my desktop PC in order to have a screen size large enough to read them. 3. Book focused mainly on the lower functioning borderline cases, while my focus was on higher functioning. 4. Book had multiple homosexual relationship case studies. 5. Book kept switching between he/she pronouns for a generic person which was confusing.
