Two experts on borderline personality disorder BPD present the fifth book in the New Harbinger Guides for the Newly Diagnosed Series Thi. Overall the book isn't bad However because I'm already a nurse and have worked with psych patients I already knew most of the information in the book It was a good refresher but it was obviously written for someone who is newly diagnosed with BPD But even for someone who is newly diagnosed I still thought it was too basicThe style of the book overall was good It describes what BPD is it describes various treatments that include talk therapy and medication therapy I did like that it was recommended that talk therapy be included if one is also in medication therapy In my opinion it's crucial for every patient with a mental health disorder receiving mediation therapy to seek talk therapySome of the things I would have liked to be included in the book was description of the different medications Almost to the degree that they different types of talk therapy were described Not to the degree of a drug guide perhaps but just a bit detail of each one instead I would have like description of the symptoms information about onset of symptoms and when would be a good time for someone to seek help I would have like case study examples where the patients are NOT self harming or suicidal as well As it is one symptom of nine and one needs to have five of the nine there must be many case studies available where patients don't have this symptom at allI received a copy of this book from NetGalley in return for a honest review One other thing I will include in the notes to the publisher and author which I think people should know in advance is that this book comes in PDF form and not an ePub form I personally read everything on my iPhone where PDF books are difficult to read even after increasing the font One still has to increase the size of the page with every page turn which slows down the reading process I was able to convert the PDF to an ePub file However the file converted to a badly formatted ePub book It might be good if NetGalley actually increased the options for the readers or of NetGalley made it so all books are in ePub form for non Kindle usersI give it three of five stars For me three stars signifies a rating of Good
