From our regular book review column.
This 450-page, paperbound book is coauthored by John Oldham, a distinguished psychoanalyst and veteran psychiatric researcher who was deeply involved in the evolution of the DSM-IV personality disorder criteria, and Lois Morris, an eminent writer on psychological topics for lay people. The two authors have blended their respective talents of scientific rigor and seamless writing in the revision of their 1990 book The Personality Self-Portrait. Like its predecessor, the current version is based upon the conviction that diagnosable disorders of personality are merely extremes along a continuum of individual personality differences.
