A new review of “When Hope is Not Enough” from an Amazon reader:
If you are looking for a book that gives you the tools to work with your BPD partner because you want a relationship with them, this is the book for you. This book is the best kept secret in the Non BPD world and it shouldn’t be. This book gives you constructive ways to deal with the person you love when they are emotionally deregulated without being told that leaving is the only answer.
Are you a loved one of someone with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD, or Emotional Regulation Disorder)? Are you a spouse, partner, friend or parent of this person? Is living with this person driving you crazy?
Need a new way to interact with someone with Borderline Personality Disorder? Have you tried everything and nothing seems to be working? Have you read several self-help books on the subject, even the best-selling ones, and your life is still filed with pain and conflict?
If so, I have a book for you to read. I wrote it because a few years ago I was in a very similar situation. My wife of more than 20 years has BPD. One of my daughters also exhibits BPD traits. I’ve seen the disorder from the standpoint of a spouse and a parent.
Believe me… it was hell.
What did I do? I got educated about the disorder. I learned effective strategies and tools to make my life easier. Then I practiced them and mastered them. It has made things much easier for me and my family.
I decided to write it all down in my book When Hope is Not Enough: a how-to guide for living with and loving someone with Borderline Personality Disorder (aka WHINE).
If you want your life to be more calm, I urge you to read this book. The strategies and tools in WHINE actually work. I’m still married and both my wife and my daughter have improved greatly. Also, the material in WHINE has helped hundreds of people more effectively manage their relationship with someone with BPD.
A recent quote from a reader of WHINE:
“Your book in all honesty, out of close to $400 worth of BPD materials I bought, gave me something really concrete to work with. Whether or not it works is up to many factors but, I feel confident that I have the tools I need to work off of, and that is something not even my therapist has given me no matter how much I asked.”
If you’ve tried everything, read every book on BPD, gone to therapy, whatever… maybe it’s time to invest less than $20 in your relationship?
You can buy a printed copy of WHINE online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other major Internet retailers. Buy it by clicking on the following links (the current price at each of these is about $16.50 USD):
Or, you can buy an electronic copy (for $7.50 USD) at Lulu (the publisher) by clicking below:
Finally, just a quick note: this is not one of those marketing sites that is trying to get your email address so I can send you newsletters and SPAM (in fact, I don’t get your email address when you buy the book). I know there are a lot of those out there – you might have encountered them before, the ones with the highlighting and exclamation marks!!! No, I actually wrote this book to help out people in their relationships with someone with BPD.
