Reckless and impulsive behavior, recurrent suicidal behavior, and anger management issues are just a few of the symptoms exhibited by people with BPD, so it is no wonder that their loved ones often seek outside help for salvaging their relationships. When Stop Walking on Eggshells was first published, it gave new hope to thousands of people with friends and family members suffering from borderline personality disorder (BPD). This second edition has been fully updated and includes new revisions that make the book even easier to read. Stop Walking on Eggshells, Second Edition, features shorter chapters, bulleted lists, and updated information on medications. The new edition also teaches readers a dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skill called validation that can help them compassionately, but firmly, set boundaries with their loved ones. Readers will discover the different methods clinicians use to treat BPD and learn how they can help their loved one find the best treatment method and therapist.

I DO NOT recommend this book for anyone who may think they have BPD or anyone wanting to help someone with BPD. As a person with BPD, I found this book as targeting. I think this book would be extremely helpful for someone who found out that a person they are trying to distance themselves from has BPD. As it says, it should only be read if your trying to "take back YOUR life". I would only suggest "I hate you.. Dont't leave me"..Or contact me as I have written three unpublished memoirs that show inside the mind of a person with BPD.

As a novice at understanding psychology, I found this very helpful. It gave valuable information as to what Borderline Personality Disorder is and practical advice as to how to interact with people afflicted with it, especially when you must deal with them frequently. Although the advice is mainly for BPD interactions, it could serve as a basis for communication in ordinary circumstances. The resources in the Appendices were outstanding.
