This is a very serious glimpse of Borderline Personality Disorder as depicted from his career treating and counseling afflicted individuals. The fictionalized cases present a range of the severity/legerity of the trauma and symptoms of the disorder which are vivid, disturbing, and absolutely believable. Anyone with BPD who reads this book should do so under supervision, at first you might find yourself oppositional to reading it but Moskovitz has a way of rendering the emotions accurately in a way that would get under anyone's skin. If you are reading this book for yourself, or for a loved one do not give yourself guilt for doing so. Your goal going into it was understanding and one can leave with a sense of understanding. This book if mis-used for self-flaggelation could be devestating or trigger distructive behavior. I advise reading this book SLOWLY in small doses and checking in with someone if you are a sensitive person who feels this is necessary for your character development.
