This author, supposedly a "profiler", seems to be woefully lacking in knowledge of this disorder--which makes you wonder just what his qualifications are. Yes, people with BPD can be very difficult to live with, and having this disorder is not a blanket excuse for abusing those around them. But the author seems to believe that borderlines traipse merrily through life, leaving ruin in their wake, with not a single qualm of conscience--apparently utterly unaffected and unconcerned with the damage they have caused. In short: their victims suffer severely, while borderlines suffer not at all. No wonder even many therapists refuse to treat anyone they "suspect" of having BPD! Who would want to "help" such a monster? But our profiler misses something: the fact that borderlines themselves suffer intensely, are bewildered by their own actions, and loathe themselves for damaging those closest to them. No one would ever choose to have BPD; most of those who have it consider it a curse but still blame themselves for their out-of-control emotions and behaviors. This "expert" needs to start over. A good beginning would be in listening not ONLY to those hurt by the borderlines in their lives, but also to borderlines themselves and to the therapists who treat them--some with great success. But apparently that is asking more than some people are willing to do, which is very sad.
