I like to read anything that tells a good story, duh ;) Genre doesn't really matter much but I tend to read dark fiction and fantasy the most. I skip chick lit and romance novels with a few exceptions for the extraordinary.

This guide was definitely geared more toward people who deal with borderline personalities than people with BPD, which I was hoping it would.
The first chapters didn't offer much in the way of new information for anyone who's done simple research on BPD, but it would be a solid introduction for newbies. Chapters 8, 12 and 16 proved most informative for me, someone who interacts with BPD people on a regular basis. Specifically pages 205, 218, 256, and 260-265.
The entire book was well-organized, concise, and written in easy-to-understand language. Overall, it was just too general; there was a little bit on everything, but not an in-depth examination of any one topic.
