    1. Long clinical psychology book. But, it was worth the read. It definitely helps people with BPD understand the disease better. Borderline Personality Disorder is strikingly similar to Bipolar Disorder and it's extremely difficult and often misdiagnosed for Bipolar Disorder. As a person who has been diagnosed with both BPD and Bipolar, while they share a lot of the same attributes they are also very different and acutely strenuous, irritating, exhausting, and confusing to deal with on a day to day [...]

    2. A good and clear technical guide as to what BPD is, what causes it, as well as a solid exploration of treatment options and symptom management.This book is clinical in its approach and focus. It explores Freudian, attachment, and object-relations theories as potential contributors to BPD and its common co-morbidities (depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, eating disorders, self-mutilation, alcoholism and other addictions).This is primarily a guide for people that have been diagnosed with BPD, thei [...]

    3. I purchased this book, along with another about BPD to try and gain some insight as to why a psychiatrist of a local hospital and his staff were bent on convincing me that I had BPD.

    4. Much more technical than I Hate You, Don't Leave Me: Understanding the Borderline Personality. I think one could get by with reading either one or the other, depending on how one handles in depth material. Although this book has far more information than the Kreisman book, I don't regret having read them both.

    5. This book is more scientific than Stop Walking on Eggshells and is better suited for a therapist or doctor than a family member. The fact-based approach is handy, but I wanted more hands-on information and stopped reading about a quarter of the way through.

    6. The sections titled "Managing an Employee Who Has BPD" and "Working with Someone Who Has BPD" are absolutely spot on and were very helpful. They are free to view on .

    7. A lot more clinical than I was hoping for, rather than information on dealing with interpersonal relationships with people with BPD.
