Easy-to-understand explanations and advice in dealing with individuals with changeable personalities allow The Jekyll and Hyde Syndrome to describe the Yin and Yang of those engaged in this monumental human struggle."

    saved me from insanity

    this is such a wondrerful book for any one who has a chronic complainer , angry, self centered person and a abusive person in their life. it is easy reading and very understanable. it changed my life for the better because i knew that my husband had a sort of jekly and hyde disposition and this book had his name written all over it. i now know how to save my marriage from distruction,and because of this book(even though he didnt read it) made him a better person.. hats off to the author.
