"This edited volume makes an outstandin g contribution, grasping the complexity and current status of the disorder that is troubling to parents and clinicians alike....Although research based, the book is not a dry, dull literature review. It is exciting to read....Seasoned clinicians, researchers, and graduate students will find this book of great value....If this work is any indication of what can be expected of future volumes in their series, clinicians are in store for a marvelous, substantial contribution to their knowledge base, which can only enhance their clinical acumen."
-Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic

"This is simply the most comprehensive book ever complied on borderline personality disorder. It is a must-read for all clinicians who diagnose and treat this most difficult but rewarding group of patients."
-Allen J. Frances, MD

"This book can be recommended highly to anyone interested in treating, studying, or understanding the borderline personality syndrome. In short, it is good for what ails us."
-The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
