Customer reviews

By Catherine Michelle Moses 21 Sep 2011 1

This book has little to do with Borderline Personality Disorder, or Emotion Disregulation disorder. This book would have you believe that people with BPD are all manipulative and violent - which is far from the case. In fact, very little people with TRUE BPD are manuipulative and violent. It is more highly associated with temper disregulation disorder...unfortunately people like to lump both groups together. Find a different book.

Review quote

Stop Walking on Eggshells makes good on its promise to restore the lives of people in close relationships with someone diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD). It is a rich guide to understanding and coping with the reactions aroused in others by troubling BPD behaviors that negatively impact relationships. Readers will find this book very useful and beneficial. -- Nina W. Brown, Ed.D., professor and Eminent Scholar at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA, author of Children of the Self-Absorbed This book is the absolute go-to guide for my clients who are dealing with a loved one with borderline personality disorder. Readable and thorough, it strikes a perfect balance of practical advice and emotional sensitivity. This book has helped so many people break through their sense of confusion and isolation by helping them to name, understand, and respond to the difficulties of this complex and misunderstood disorder. -- Daniel E. Mattila, M.Div., LCSW
