As a therapist, I have recommended this book to my clients. It gives hope to people w BPD for ways to practice to lessen/end their suffering. This book gives real life examples from real people w BPD and how these techniques have worked for them. This is not a "quick fix". It takes practice and determination. It describes the techniques in a clear understandable manner. These techniques build upon each other. If you listen/read this book all the way thru, don't become overwhelmed. Remember it is a process that takes time and practice. I would recommend reading it thru one time, then come back and go thru and practice taking each chapter/techniques one at a time. Practice it till you feel comfortable before moving to the next chapter.
I listened to this book read by Laura Copland on my 30 min drive to work in the morning. She does an excellent job. Her voice has good variable pitch and rhythm. She reads at a good rate; not too fast and not too slow. She expresses emotion when needed but does not over do it. I've listened to previews of other books I would like to hear while driving but the reader's voice was monotone or their voice was too exaggerated. Laura Copland's voice kept my attention, but I was focused on the content and not her voice.

Life changing. Everyone who even suspects BPD should read/hear this book. It's really essential.

The book probably help different people but just wasn't for me. I tried all the meditation to help with your mental health but it just made mine worse. Hopefully this can help someone else out there though. If your interested in meditation and Buddhism then this is the book for you

I have used mindfulness in the past and it works. I just need to remind myself often.
