    1. I thought nothing could ever top the first book Randi Kreger co wrote Stop Walking on Eggshells but her newest book does it I wish I could give ten stars instead of five This seemingly simple book is one of the top five most useful books I ve ever read in my life I ve already reread it twice, and will be reading it again in the years to come to help keep me in the right mental place If you want to not only understand emotionally troubled people, but also do something concrete to help yourself, p [...]

    2. I didn t entirely read the book, but skipped a few chapters, because they were not relevant to my situation The person that I knew with Borderline Personality Disorder is no longer in my life, although the consequences of their behaviour still are I don t think they will ever get treatment or even be properly diagnosed for that matter, so a lot of the book was not relevant to my circumstance.I cannot say how the book compares to other books on the same topic, but it was certainly an essential bo [...]

    3. It has been a couple of months since I finished this book, so my memory is getting rusty, but my general impression was that it is full of a lot of good resources but poorly organized On the positive side, the author has generated an incredible resource with his online forum connected to the Stop Walking On Eggshells books But My overriding criticism is about this field of psychology than the book in itself To me there are two very distinct categories of BPD high functioning and low functioning [...]

    4. Useful for understanding behaviour but simplifies the causes Somewhat disturbing othering of people with BPD This is a guide for family members and the focus is on surviving with a BPD in your life, and the assumption is that it will be a horrific struggle I have very mixed feelings about the book but it does provide a lot of information on a misunderstood disorder.

    5. I escaped an abusive 20 year relationship with a BPD without realizing she was Once I came to understand her disorder, this book was monumental in helping me understand what had happened to me And also to understand why I continue to be afraid of the world, depressed, and unable to get close to others My healing as taken a sharp turn upward Much of the book deals with how to live with a BDP, which I don t any, and I can see how it would be essential for those who do and aren t able to leave the [...]

    6. Read this several years ago, but I remember it being extremely helpful for the situation I was dealing with Boundaries are often times the missing key in any dysfunctional family, but especially ones with BPD.

    7. Full of practical advice and steps to enact to help improve your communication The techniques described are useful even for dealing with stressful interactions not related to someone with BPD.

    8. The second helpful book I have read concerning living with or dealing with someone with Borderline Personality Disorder This book begins with a comprehensive examination of Borderline and how it affects those dealing with it The second half of this book details 5 Power Tools practical ways to prevent becoming overwhelmed when in a relationship of any sort with someone with Borderline These include, amongst others, taking care of yourself, specific ways of communicating and setting limits There i [...]

    9. I think this would be helpful to a lot of people who are in close relationships family, friend or partner with people with BPD As with most of these books, there s of a focus on the extremes of behaviour, but it s a lot kind to people with BPD than most I particularly liked that Kreger indicated which of the resources listed at the end of the book might be triggering to people with BPD Most of the techniques discussed in here make sense to me I do, however, always feel that the key thing lacki [...]

    10. I was maybe looking for an aha moment in this book, but didn t experience it The book did make me think though, and it did make me question how I ve been viewing and relating to a family member who has BPD I have been angry at her for a long time and tend to be pretty persecutorial and judgmental of her I think the big question in my mind is what should she be responsible for, and what things is she just not capable of What kind of expectations is it ok for me or anyone else to have of her Anoth [...]

    11. This book is useful to both learn about the behavior of BPDs, and it provides some very useful tools for NONs to protect themselves both physically and emotionally, and if possible, save a family or relationship Note Some relationships may be or less difficult to save, and do not be afraid to ask for outside help If this book has a weakness, and this would be true of any book on BPD, is that there is a range of possible behaviors that BPDs exhibit, some of which depends on the whether the BPD i [...]

    12. A very concise and informative read for families of those with borderline personality disorder In the same vein as Stop Walking on Eggshells Taking Your Life Back When Someone You Care about Has Borderline Personality Disorder, it provides clear strategies and insight for interacting with a loved one who struggles with BPD Excellent resource guide in the back of the book I would definitely recommend this book to family members of patients with BPD or anyone who wants to better understand the dis [...]

    13. This book was very informative It was written in a manner that conveys then one side of this very complex mental health issue It gives examples, or testimonials, from people with boarderline personality disorders as well as stories from those in a relationship with people who have this disorder It gives practical steps to take to set boundaries and explains how their mind works I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about this disorder and how to live with one or better u [...]

    14. Have to admit that I didn t really read it, did a super fast skim Mostly aimed at people not at all like me Probably very useful for its target audience people who love BP people parents of a BP kid does acknowledge that treatment may not be an option because the BP person won t get treatment and that keeping yourself safe from a BP person is paramountd it focused on face to face communication, which is not safe in my case And I m still waffling on a BP diagnosis for my dad mostly fits, but ther [...]

    15. Such an amazing book for BPD the examples and simplification allow u as one of the public to understand the situations, feelings, and responses you re put with a person having BPDI do recommend it for any body willing to help a person with BPD and himself, the non BPD.I personally made benefit from the strategies mentioned in how to act with difficult personalities in general.

    16. This will be a book I purchase for my personal reference shelves and for other family members too It helped answer some questions my family has had for years What a relief I appreciated the support websites and intend to check them out.Randi Kreger thank you for writing this book

    17. Lots of practical advice for those who love someone suffering from BPD The book is focused on family members and close friends, not on BPD sufferer themselves, mind you Still, I found it very helpful in my own situation as one who does care not provides care for a sufferer.

    18. This is the book I recommend most to people diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder BPD and also family members and friends Highly Recommended book A must read

    19. Very helpful if you have someone in your family who suffers from this disorder It really helps you understand how they think and how you should handle things.

    20. Deepens understanding and renews compassion for this very troublesome condition Especially helpful techniques for communicating effectively.
