People with borderline personality disorder (BPD) experience such violent and frightening mood swings that they often fear for their sanity. They can be euphoric one moment, despairing and depressed the next. For years BPD was difficult to describe, diagnose, and treat. But with this classic guide, Dr. Jerold J. Kreisman and health writer Hal Straus offer much-needed professional advice, helping victims and their families understand and cope with this troubling, shockingly widespread affliction.

Very helpful for understanding BPD. Great chapter on the medications. I will probably go back to it many times. Lots of good information. Kind of dry. My mind kept wandering. Could only do a little at a time.

This unique and fundamentally liberating book shows us that examining our attitudes toward money - earning it, spending it, and giving it away - can offer surprising insight into our lives, our values, and the essence of prosperity. Lynne Twist, a global activist and fundraiser, has raised more than $150 million for charitable causes. Through personal stories and practical advice, she demonstrates how we can replace feelings of scarcity, guilt, and burden with experiences of sufficiency, freedom, and purpose. In this Nautilus Award-winning book, Twist shares from her own life, a journey illuminated by remarkable encounters with the richest and poorest.

She very competently puts in their place many of the beliefs so fondly held by our consumer society. With stories from her work around the world to end hunger and her insights gathered through this work she offers a perspective on money that could heal much that is wrong on this planet including particularly in the west, our disconnection from each other.
