Publisher's Summary

Keep these things in mind when a family member or friend has borderline disorder.

Having talked to and interacted with many people who have borderline personality disorder, I could not leave the knowledge I gained to myself. So I wrote this book to help those who know little about the condition and know even less about how to handle the situation. In this book you'll learn:

  • What to do when a borderliner lashes out against you.
  • More about borderline disorder and how to deal with those who have it.
  • Tips and tricks to keep your emotions under control and stay calm.
  • Some of the most common pitfalls, based on experience.

Actionable steps to take for those involved with someone with bpd

Easy to listen and take specific actions. A great overview. Quick listen. Will refer back to this multiple times.

Finally, real help!!

I've been looking for cut and dry solutions/ideas to end the war in my home. Not only did this book provide me with real solutions...but as I listened I was shocked at the "nail on the head" descriptions of my male fiancé's behaviors. I am so thankful I found this book. 1 million thank yous to the author. I would love to find such a simplistic way to explain this disorder to the borderline client.

Wish I would have read this six years ago!

The author makes very concise points about the disorder. So many of the examples I was able to apply instantly, and even remember enough of the situation to know where my mistakes were. If you feel as though any relationship may have symptoms of BPD I highly recommend you read or listen to this book!

POSSIBLY SAVED MY LIFE

Where does Borderline Disorder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE THE NEED TO READ SOMETHING LIKE THIS. IM JUST A SMALL TOWN COUNTRY BOY AND STUFF LIKE THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN TO ME, WOULD HAVE LIKELY BEEN MY RESPONSE IF ASKED A FEW YEARS AGO. I WAS SO VERY WRONG. I NEVER SAW IT COMING UNTIL IT WAS TOO LATE. I WENT FROM MEETING THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PRETTY SEXY WOMAN IN THE WORLD THAT ABSOULTLEY BLEW MY SOCKS OFF WITH HER LOOKS AND CHARM AND UNLIMITED PORN STAR QUALITY SEX. I THOUGHT WE WERE PERFECT FOR EACH OTHER AND I FELT 10 FEET TALL AND BULLET PROOF. BAD THING ABOUT BEING 10 FEET TALL IS IT HURTS MUCH MORE WHEN YOU FALL. THIS BOOK SHOULD BE REQUIRED IN SCHOOL

Helpful to understanding BPD loved ones.

I really enjoyed how brief the book was, as many of the other BPD books are so long and full of info it can be overwhelming. This was book gives a clear idea of what to expect in having a loved one with BPD, which can help family members feel more prepared. I was hoping to hear more specifics on HOW to set boundaries and regulate my own emotions when a BPD loved one is losing control. Still, a useful, brief read.

This Book Spoke To Me!!!

I recommend this book to anyone who has a loved one that struggles with borderline personality disorder. The author provides a great summary of the ideas discussed in other books that are out on the market on the same topic. He also provides some good examples of what to do in specific situations.

Too much self promotion

“Tips” trend towards sx identification and do not offer unique or insightful methods for coping. His self promotion bothered me a lot. Considering my disappointment with this book, I will not buy the others he wrote and recommends.
