    Comment on this review

    "This book is urgently needed now that a National Institutes of Health study shows that 6 percent of the general population has borderline personality disorder (BPD). I constantly get requests from families needing resources on BPD, and I recommend "Stop Walking On Eggshells "almost every time. This second edition is really easy to read and packed with even more useful tips for family members in distress." --Bill Eddy, LCSW, attorney, mediator, clinical social worker, and author of "High Conflict People in Legal Disputes "and "Splitting"
