A revised and updated edition of the bestselling guide to understanding borderline personality disorder.

After more than two decades as the essential guide to Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), this new edition now reflects the most up- to-date research that has opened doors to the neurobiological, genetic, and developmental roots of the disorder as well as connections between BPD and substance abuse, sexual abuse, Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome, ADHD, and eating disorders.

Both pharmacological and psychotherapeutic advancements point to real hope for success in the treatment and understanding of BPD.

This expanded and revised edition remains as accessible and useful as its predecessor and will reestablish this book as the go-to source for those diagnosed with BPD, their family, friends, and colleagues, as well as professionals and students in the field. Download and start listening now!

    " This is a really good book for anyone who wants to learn more about BPD for any reason. After reading this book, I felt as though I had at least a slightly better understanding of BPD. It gives straightforward information in a clear manner (in other words, in plain English) and gives case studies to bolster the information. A really good read that I highly recommend to anyone who wants or needs to know more about this disorder. "
