Editorial Reviews

Review

"Livesley, a major contributor to the burgeoning research in personality disorder assessment and classification, is to be congratulated on editing this comprehensive volume. Leading personality disorder investigators and theoreticians have contributed to making this book essential for any serious student of the field--whether at the undergraduate, graduate, or postgraduate level--who wants the latest available information." --Robert L. Spitzer, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons (former Chair of the American Psychiatric Association's Work Group to Develop DSM-III and DSM-III-R)

"Most books about personality disorders are like side dishes at a banquet. They deal with one aspect of the subject: assessment and measurement, forensic implications, psychological and psychodynamic aspects, or medico-legal complications. Even those books that have attempted a broader view have tended to concentrate on one or more of these elements at the expense of others. Handbook of Personality Disorders is different--it is a genuine main course, striking a balance between theory and practice, speculation and fact, biology and psychology, and cause and effect. Livesley has chosen his collaborators well and together they cover all that the world yet knows about a subject that is still in its infancy but growing fast." --Peter Tyrer, MD, Professor of Community Psychiatry, Imperial College School of Medicine, London, UK

"This is a landmark volume. There is no other single publication that provides a comparable scope and breadth of information on the definition, course, and treatment of the personality disorders." --John F. Clarkin, PhD, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Cornell Medical Center

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Danilo A. Baltieri on August 27, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This book represents a seminally important contribution, taking us reassuringly through heretofore murky and uncharted waters. Prof. Livesley convincingly integrates and reconciles neuropsychological, social and psychiatric perspectives on Personality Disorders. The author and his contributors deliver a broad set of information for the clinicians involved with the treatment of Personality Disorders and with the research on this, yet fresh enough and deep enough to prove useful to the most experienced specialist.
