Editorial Reviews

James Choca
This book reviews the major theories of personality and personality disorders that are in current use. An introduction by Lenzenberger and Clarkin covers the history and the major issues posed by the topic. After that, the book strives to present the different theoretical points of view on the subject matter. That worthy objective is met with relative clarity and conciseness. Designed mostly for clinicians wishing for an overview of the thinking on personality disorders, the book uses well-known authorities to present the different theories. A review of the cognitive perspective by Beck is followed by Kamberg's discussion of the psychoanalytic thinking, elucidations on the interpersonal viewpoint by Loma Benjamin, Millon's evolutionary standpoint, and the presentation of a neurobiological framework by Depue. The book can be faulted for omitting the Five Factor Model, a point of view that has a substantial following, particularly among academically oriented clinicians. Some of the chapters mix in therapeutic applications and may not offer enough information to allow a good understanding of the theory. In spite of those limitations, the book serves well as an introduction, a collection of essays that whets our appetite for more readings on the subject.
