Editorial Reviews

Choice Magazine - January 2008 Vo. 45 No. 05
"Useful as both a textbook and a reference resource, this is an excellent volume. O'Donohue, Fowler, and Lilienfeld called on an impressive array of clinical experts to address the etiology, symptomology, and treatment of each of the major personality disorders. " -R.E. Osborne, Texas State University-San Marcos— R.E. Osborne
Robert Cloninger
"Personality Disorders is an important book because it exposes clearly the major controversies facing the field. Each chapter is an erudite contribution that stands on its own quality. In addition, the insightful reader will also be able to compare the divergent, and sometimes contradictory, perspectives and conclusions of different chapters. Consideration of the contradictions and unanswered questions throughout the book reveals the harsh consequences of blind reliance on false assumptions about how nature can be carved at its joints, when there are actually no such joints. "
Joseph J. Guido
"This is an important book. It provides a clear guide and reference for season clinicians who treat personality disordered individuals everyday, knowingly or not. It should prove especially helpful to graduate students and upper level undergraduates as an introduction to the diagnoses and as a demonstration of the importance of good clinical and empirical research."
