Book Review – The Angry Heart

The Angry HeartFull title:  “The Angry Heart:  Overcoming Borderline and Addictive Disorders” by Joseph Santoro, Ph.D. and Ronald Cohen, Ph.D.

This is a pretty good book.  My favourite parts were the stories of “Samuel” interspersed throughout each chapter.  (The name has been changed to protect his identity.)  This book has information that the authors have come up with regarding different “zones” in the Borderline’s life.  There are exercises to do to help your overcome your Borderline and addictive behaviours.  There are boxes of short materials to read in each chapter to get a better understanding of BPD and addictive disorders.  These would be very helpful to review.

I would have liked to have read about some of the therapies out there for BPD such as Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), a trusted and proven therapy.  All in all, not a bad book to learn about these disorders and how to recover from them.
