He explains DSM diagnostic categories such as Anti-social Personality Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder and others so that you can make a better determination of whether you are dealing with one of these kinds of indivduals, what science and clinical experience says about them, and most importantly, how to deal more effectively with them.
