Comment: This book is in great condition, and appears to have been gently read. Its dust jacket is bright and clean. The pages are crisp, unmarked and clean, but one has a dog-ear. This is a really lovely copy!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A concise work, RICH in information, and not only understandable to the layperson, but a pleasure to read. I am intellectually lazy and, although I needed to keep a dictionary handy while reading the book, this inconvenience was eclipsed by its eye-opening content.

I was sad to see no Amazon reviews yet for this book, am about halfway through and, having learned so much from it already, wanted to get a review out on Amazon as soon as possible. Were the rest of the book to go completely downhill (unlikely), I would still be glad to have purchased it. Already, I have been floored by ideas such as the following (please keep in mind that the ideas and backup information are FAR better elucidated in the book):

* Some ordinary activities taken for granted by the non-BPD as completely non-threatening are ***literally feared WORSE than death*** by the BPD. Think about what, exactly, 'worse than death' means--nothing less than permanent, pervasive, personal torment, eternal damnation, Hell. In that context, death (suicide) seems like eternal relief.

* The age at which the BPD-sufferer's trauma occurred determines whether or not the BPD *can* respond to logical, verbal therapy. If the trauma occurred in infancy, for example, the therapist is advised to take other specific approaches, such as temperature control, etc.

* More than one type of primitive belief system may be at play in the BPD. Combinations of these sometimes markedly conflicting beliefs confound BPD diagnosis and treatment.

As a layperson, I find this book worth multiple readings. However, please don't take my word for it. Borrow the book from the library first to make sure it will work for you.
