Too short and not very helpful

this book feels like a money grab...it offers no insights or helpful advice...just repeats itself over and over about how it's ok to seek help ..it should offer some dbt tools or ideas ...I could get the same advice this book offers for free online...total waste of time.

How to Survive Borderline Personality Disorder

The How to Survive series: An informative and well written book. Stephanie Anne Allen is obviously very knowledgeable on the subject and comes across as very empathetic. The narration by Holly Holt was very well done. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

How to survive series

I live with mental illness. This series did a great job of helping me understand different mental illnesses, and how to cope with them. These books weren’t too intellectual, meaning they didn’t get super technical, and spoke in a way that I could understand.

Engaging and Encouraging

Compared to other books in this series, this one has a lot more cheerleading in it. The author also suffers with bpd, shares a little bit of her experience, and has her own book in addition to this one. Like other books in the series, this book quickly goes over what BPD is, as well as different coping skills for it. This book was given to me for free at my request, and I provided this voluntary review.
