Helpful for non-BP

This book provides practical and helpful information for the those who have or had a loved one with BP. It helped elucidate some of the counterintuitive issues, such as commenting on a BP's progress can actually lead to more irrational abandonment fears. Compared against so many other audiobooks on the subject, I found myself taking more notes and waking away with actionable knowledge.

Highly recommendable

Would you consider the audio edition of Personality Disorders to be better than the print version?

An informative book that explains, without patronizing, the traits of this particular condition. This text was instrumental in gaining my understanding of it. Would recommend for anyone who is suffering from, or knows someone who is suffering from a personality disorder.

Academic. Cold. Narrator - boo. Interesting material turned boring

It reads like a classroom text book on science. There are virtually no pauses between sections. Felt like this British cold narrator just wanted to get it done ASAP, the epitome of queens English professorial lecture, I would have picked up more of the info without these factors. As it is, I felt like I was at the receiving end of pedantic hammering from a person who has no real interest in the subject. I don’t think I’ll finish the book.

We have to cope with people and their personality

If you could sum up Personality Disorders in three words, what would they be?

Good book that explains the different personality types and the diseases underneath each personality. I love reading/listening books like this because it makes you understand more about those who are suffering from the disease. Knowing more about what's happening to them helps me relate to them more and appropriately react and reach out to them.

Very interesting!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I was initially quite curious about the title of this book, which is why I bought it. From the content of the book, I realize that the book provides great insights into the personality disorders, which allow understanding into the minds of sociopaths. Very interesting!
