Top review from Australia
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
A mental condition is not ALL of somebody, it is just a small part, and it is NOT. THEIR. FAULT.
Shame on the authors and creators of this book for magnifying and aiding the stigmas that surround cluster b's and make them into the problem.

By including more about narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) in this third edition the whole character of the book has changed.
If I wanted information on NPD written from the heart I would find Shahida Arabi's work more useful.
I miss the old book, yes it was dated because it reflected its context and what was known at the time but it was full of life. It was never intended to be the last word.
This new third edition does not show the distance travelled. Many people will have friends and family who have sought help and failed to find it. The second edition would help people to see why that would have been likely and how much the internet changed things.
This book is completely rewritten and its information derived more from professional therapist viewpoints. The account is very good and useful, it is not at all a bad book. I just wish it was written under a different title, people are not really getting the power of the original "Stop Walking on Eggshells".
Full of insights and practical advice, its rigorous yet human approach to carving space for yourself in the wake of caring for someone whose fragility has enormous destructive potential, is a life-saver.
It was worth the read.
