Do you feel manipulated, controlled, or lied to? Are you the focus of intense, violent, and irrational rages? Do you feel you are "walking on eggshells" to avoid the next confrontation?
If the answer is "yes," someone you care about may have borderline personality disorder (BPD). Stop Walking on Eggshells has already helped nearly half a million people with friends and family members suffering from BPD understand this destructive disorder, set boundaries, and help their loved ones stop relying on dangerous BPD behaviors. This fully revised edition has been updated with the very latest BPD research and includes coping and communication skills you can use to stabilize your relationship with the BPD sufferer in your life.

Absolute truth!

If you could sum up Stop Walking on Eggshells in three words, what would they be?

So much information!

Who was your favorite character and why?

It was mainly a self help book

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Learning I was not alone.

Any additional comments?

I recommend it for family, patients, anyone wanting to know more about BPD. It's a horrible disease and I as a patient, also living with someone with BPD and had a mother withBPD. It was very informative. VERY INFORMATIVE

Occasionally A Book Is Like an Epiphany. 2nd Ed Is

Would you consider the audio edition of Stop Walking on Eggshells to be better than the print version?

Take care the first time you listen!
It is very captivating to have your experiences validated and be given skills to limit those experiences.
Driving is not the time to be staring at your audio player saying 'that is so true'.
3 months latter I'm still as excited as when I first listened to this Audio-Book.

If you are new to this book Part 1 will Captivate you (as it did me a few years ago).
If you've read the 1st Edition, Part 2 will bowl you over.

What other book might you compare Stop Walking on Eggshells to and why?

A few times in your life you read a book that's like an epiphany. This is one of them.
(Part 1 of the 1st Ed also did this to me)

Which scene was your favorite?

Part 2 Lean the skills to live your life. Boundaries aren't just for BPD's but relevant when dealing with any difficult person.

Any additional comments?

Part 2 of this 2d Edition is so relevant to everyday life, not just dealing with BPD sufferers. If you read the First Edition, you are in for a treat. So much more information and it's so relevant to today, tomorrow and the future.
I purchased it to brush up & found Part 2 of the second Edition so good I bought paper backs for some friends. A must read (listen).

Excellent for basic understanding of BPD

Never thought I will enjoy audio book so much. This book made me very emotional as it was touching the right spots and experiences that I have been having with someone with BPD. Highly recommended

Not just for those who have a BPD in their life

I use and recommend this book all the time, not just for people trying to find ways of getting along with borderline personality disorder person in your life but also anyone whom you are finding difficult to get along with. The advice on Boundary setting; listening and paraphrasing; and setting limits is pure gold for improving your conflict management skills. Very helpful for people who are in emotional abusive relationships also.
