This is a good book for those who wish to work on a relationship with someone with Boarderline Personality Disorder. It teaches you to understand their thinking and how to deal with the rages.

Personally, I didn't get much out of it because I didn't want to understand, I wanted out.

This book may have saved my life. It really helped pull me out of some dark, dark days by helping me understand what was going on with my marriage. Thank goodness I don't need it anymore and my ex is actually doing much better!

The question PaperBackSwap asks is "Did you enjoy this book?" Enjoy is not quite the word to use here, but I did find the book's descriptions of borderline personality disorder useful and its suggestions about how to preserve one's own sanity when dealing with someone who has the disorder were helpful. I will keep this book as a reference book rather than selling or donating it. Some of the specific references in the back of the book may now be too dated to be of actual use, but the authors' insight remains up-to-date as far as I can tell from my other research. I had hoped to find a suggestion as to how to get someone to go for a proper diagnosis. Alas, not this book nor any other source has a way to "lead a horse to water AND get it to drink." Not the book's fault...
