" "Borderline Personality Disorder" is an interesting and unique book.... Psychoanalysts and psychotherapy researchers are encouraged to take a careful look at this book.... [T]his book makes several important contributions. One is that is makes a rigorous clinical-quantitative inroad into the understanding and treatment of some borderline patients--a further documentation of their heterogeneity, the great importance of tailoring treatments to individual needs and capacities, and the value of support and of tolerance for limited outcomes. The book also documents the continued clinical and research value of rigorous individual case studies, and provides a harbinger of future analytic treatment research."-- "Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association"
"All of this material, including a review of the literature, is a gold mine of information for every therapist interested in the borderline patient. It is well organized and well written. The care that these clinicians took with this project shines through on every page."-- "Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic"
"This exceptionally clearly written book will be of interest to anyone who attempts psychotherapy with borderline patients... this is a stimulating, well-produced book that I highly recommend to anyone involved in the intensive psychotherapy of psychoanalysis of borderline patients. The authors are to be congratulated for producing this fine work and encouraged to enlarge on it with a study of more patients."-- "Richard D. Chessick, M.D., Ph.D., American Journal of Psychiatry"
