" "Biological and Neurobehavioral Studies of Borderline Personality Disorder", edited by Kenneth R. Silk, MD, brings together a body of recent work exploring the role of neurobiology in influencing borderline personality disorder.... This book provides an outstanding integration of the current knowledge base about biological influences upon borderline personality disorder. Beyond this, however, it offers a perspective upon the ways in which biased neuroregulatory systems can influence personality. Such a perspective may help us to better understand our patients' experience of the world, and the ways in which they compensate with reactive characterological deformations and obligate interpersonal relationship patterns."-- "Harold W. Koenigsberg, M.D., Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Cornell University Medical College"
"The book does give a good overview of current research in the area.... I would recommend it as an excellent reference source for psychiatrists interested in research in the area."-- "Irish Journal of Psychological Medicine"
"This book is an important landmark in the biological study of personality disorders. It deserves the attention of students of biological psychiatry and the personality disorders and has much to commend it to the more general reader."-- "American Journal of Psychiatry"
