People with personality disorders are all around us, though many times we're t aware of those who are overly paraid, obsessive-compulsive, antisocial, or overly dependent until it's too late. Indeed, many sufferers aren't aware themselves of their disorders and often go undiagsed and untreated, leading to problems in their personal and professional lives. Here, Dobbert offers an introduction to the most common personality disorders, and a guide for those who work, live, or come in contact with sufferers on a daily basis.
