There have been many fine books on the borderline personality, but this is the first work that intelligently addresses the effect of borderline patients on the psychotherapist or psychoanalyst who works with them. It is a profoundly informative, vivid, and compelling read, because the authors have skillfully inserted riveting clinical vignettes that evoke the presence of the personality they address, thereby establishing a rather remarkable triangular drama: this extraordinary patient, contemporary psychoanalytic theories on the borderline patient, and the clinician who must carry his patient and his own beset-upon self to psychic change and well-being.--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

I also appreciate the author's appreciation of how difficult this kind of work is, instead of all the overly optimistic and mechanical therapy manuals out there. Anyone working with patients with personality disorders ought to read this.
