This is not a textbook. It is a book written in clear language, so that people faced with everyday experiences can learn to navigate and negotiate with troubled individuals.
It is so easy to read that my beach buddy picked it up this summer and started reading it to get some insight into her brother -- his thinking, actions and reactions.
I highly recommend it for real people seeking better understanding of family and friends struggling with disorders.
Thank you for this book Elinor Greenberg
Book is no available in electronic format. Why not? Book seems to be meant to serve a general readership.
Why make hard copy so expensive? Again why would an interested general reader take a chance on such an expensive book? I publish too. I know what it costs to produce and distribute.
You post on Quora with great information that whets my appetite for your input and this subject. I'll bet if you check with Amazon metrics you'll find that you get a lot of looks and not a lot sales.
You're overpriced by a factor of 2.
I'm also a victim of narcissistic abuse, so it was interesting to gain insight into NPD.
On a personal note, Elinor has taught me most of what I know in working with people who seem to present with these adaptations and she has helped to catapult me to being a well-respected member of the community of therapists whom work with BPD, and has selflessly encouraged me to develop my own work.
If you are in the mental health field, or know a person who struggles with one of these adaptations, you need to buy this book.
