Quest for Answers: A Primer of Understanding and Treating Severe Personality Disorders

J Clin Psychiatry 1996;57(10):490-491 [book review]

An original format, a clear prose, well-formulated questions, and honest answers on a topic considered by many as the last frontier of psychopathology are the main characteristics of this book. One hundred questions with two-page and three-reference answers each about diagnosis, dynamics, development, evaluation, treatment, and prognosis of severe personality disorders may not be enough to cover the whole field but leave the reader (psychiatric resident, clinician, therapist, educator) with flashing images of how much is known and how much more is unknown (and, therefore, left to speculative imagination) in a very difficult clinical area.
