Practical Strategies

Kreger and Shirley's book lives up to its title. This book is so good that it can be used by itself. In addition, I strongly recommend Surviving a Borderline Parent: How to Heal Your Childhood Wounds & Build Trust, Boundaries, and Self-Esteem by Roth and Friedman. Sincerely,John

A wonderful resource of information

It is rare for me to read a book that in seemingly every page is an "a-ha" realization...the proverbial "lightbulb effect". I would guess that those who have been trying to cope with or understand the bizarre behaviors of their borderline loved one will have a similar reaction in reading this book. I commend the authors for their diligent research into Borderline Personality Disorder and their accurate assessment of this serious disorder. With knowledge and understanding of BPD comes COMPASSION for what the borderline is unknowingly going through. It is true that no one can "make" another person happy. The borderlne still has to take responsibility for their own behaviors instead of blaming others for their unhappiness. This book is invaluable to begin the road to healing. There are two other books that I would suggest as companions to this one as they deal directly with the core of BPD- dysfunctional thinking (thoughts), "You Can Be Happy No Matter What", and/or, "You Can Feel Good Again", both by Richard Carlson. I wish you the best!


This book is an absolute life-saver when dealing with the BP in your life, and how you interact with them. I never realised how completely enraged my BP got me because it was all piling up into problems elsewhere, until doing some of the exercises in here. Now I know where my buttons are, and when my BP is trying to hit them, and different ways that I can deal with this without making the situation worse in the long run. This book is a must for anyone living with a BP, whatever the age.-Daughter of a BP (18)

How to Reclaim Sanity in Your Life

A tremendous resouce for anyone involved with borderline or other disorders. I can't say enough about this book. It will change your life in ways you never thought possible. I was able to regain my dignity, self esteem and take steps to put me in control of a situation I thought hopeless. Both books, Stop Walking on Eggshells and the Workbook are at the top of the list of the books we recommend at MSN Psychopath forum. There should be a 10-star rating for this one!!Darla B.

From the minds of two geniuses comes the workbook

Most non-borderlines who have a borderline in their lives are well aware of Randi Kreger's and Paul Mason's, M.S., blockbuster, eye-opening, incredible, best-seller *Stop Walking on Eggshells*, '98. This excellent workbook comes now in 2002 by Randi Kreger and James Paul Shirley, M.S.W., as a complement, supplement and added bonus. The workbook, *The Stop Walking on Eggshells Workbook: Practical Stragegies for Living With Someone Who Has Borderline Personality Disorder* is a very helpful extension of that outstanding book *Stop Walking On Eggshells*.The workbook is loaded with probing questions, exercises, action steps and 'self-tests'.The confusing dialogue that a non-borderline has with a person with Borderline Personality Disorder is explained here, sorted out and understood more in this dynamic workbook. The workbook presents a commitment and the action steps and skills to work in helping to set boundaries.I urge the reader to use the workbook (SWOEW) in tandem with *Stop Walking On Eggshells*, (SWOE), even though there is some similar overlapping material in both books, SWOE, the book, is geared toward helping the reader understand what Borderline Personality Disorder is and the workbook (SWOEW) is geared to what to do about it, how to use some coping skills and to apply the strategies.Like *Stop Walking On Eggshells*, this workbook deserves many more stars than five. Combined, the two are as close as you can get to having the most complete information on Borderline Personality Disorder there is available. The combination is significantly better than just using either one alone.Rita Closson, M.A., Social Psychologist
