Review:

Individuals with the Borderline Personality Disorder need many things for a happy and successful life. Medication and counseling alone will not work. Reality perception regularly gets impaired, ruining relationships and many other areas of a borderline's life. Awareness of symptoms, clarifying perceptions, and taking responsibility for one's life are all crucial. Laura Paxton's book Borderline and Beyond is enormously helpful - no matter what kind of therapy is being used. It will be helpful for those not in treatment as well. It is a wonderful workbook teaching specific techniques and educating borderlines about many aspects of their diagnosis. I highly encourage everyone with the BPD to use this book as a guide. Leland M. Heller, M.D. Author Life at the Border - Understanding and Recovering from the Borderline Personality Disorder and Biological Unhappiness -- Leland M. Heller, M.D.

Laura Paxton has written a new book entitled "Borderline and Beyond: A Program of Recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder." I have had the pleasure of reading the "downloadable" version of her book and was totally delighted! It is an excellent book that I recommend to all that suffer from this disorder. Laura seems to have great insight into the thoughts, feelings and behavior of this disorder and has set up an excellent plan for recovery." -- Patty Johnson, MSW The Borderline Sanctuary
