"Dr. Paris has written a comprehensive and richly referenced book covering every aspect of borderline personality. Dr. Paris' expertise and long experience shine through in his lucid prose-style, establishing him as an investigator at the cutting edge in this field. Mental health professionals grappling with the difficulties typically posed by their borderline patients will find this book highly readable, valuable, and instructive."-- "Michael H. Stone, M.D., Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons"
"Joel Paris' book is a masterful review of much of the recent and relevant literature on borderline personality disorder (BPD).... a highly readable and digestible volume for the clinician who seeks a synthesis of much of the current literature on BPD provided by an author whose own studies have been in the forefront of advancing the field."-- "General Hospital Psychiatry"
"This is one of those milestones in the study of the borderline personality disorder, not just another compilation of papers or a doctrinaire argument representative of one or another school of thought. It is a splendid piece of original work, a brilliant synthesis of the diverse influences that bear on the development of the borderline. Both clinically astute and empirically anchored, it provides the reader with an integrated model that transcends in its scope and analysis all other efforts of its kind. It is also a refreshing experience to read a book on this disorder that is not only insightful and gracefully written, but reviews the rich intellectual history of the construct so thoroughly and articulates its research possibilities so wisely and sensibly. Moreover, this work will have a significant impact on the field for decades to come owing to Paris' highly inventive research proposals."-- "Theodore Millon, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School"
