A book with complete understanding of this complex and tough-to-treat disorder. It is a comprehensive guide which thoroughly explains what BPD is and what a patient's treatment options are, including an overview of the revolutionary new treatment called dialectic behavior therapy. This is well written and easy to understand. I have read a few books on this subject and found this one to be the best. Full of information that is very valuable in ones treatment. I am so glad I was able to read this book and recommend you do too. *I was given this book in return for a honest review.*
