Interesting. The only part I have a problem with is that it is too focused on disordered personalities. I would make the argument that close-minded, negative people who can be qualified as neurotypicals are perhaps the most toxic of people. In essence, they can ruin lives no disorder required.

Nonetheless, just good topic of discussions to get dialogue going.

Cheers and best wishes!

I have read many of Bill Eddy's books and contacted him when I was having some serious problems with my disordered family members. Through his secretary, Bill Eddy advised me to not say much to my disordered family members about what I thought, which I ignored to my disadvantage. I was offered a $400 one hour consult with him which I think could be worth it in many cases, though his secretary made it clear he did not think he could really help me. I highly recommend his books and website. I was too hung up on speaking my truths and ignored Bill Eddy's advice though did not forget it. It takes a long time to process that we will never likley by heard and seen by the disordered people in our lives, and the abuse can accelerate to even more unbearable levels, if we are frank with disordered people about our feelings and thoughts. I am still learning who it is safe to speak my truths with, and who it is unsafe to show how I feel whether through verbal and/or nonverbal communications.
