Lost in the Mirror: an inside look at Borderline Personality Disorder
I have great respect for the pride and responsibility Dr. Moskovitz has invested in this work. Over the years I have discovered that people need emotional freedom for their life’s journey. A personality disorder can interfere with one’s ability to enjoy the true gift of living, often resulting in a nightmare of false beliefs and painful concentration on weaknesses without recognition of strengths. Through the professional attitudes and capable therapy of physicians like Dr. Moskovitz, these rigid patterns are diminished, allowing the emergence of a whole person with renewed human spirit and purpose.
This book is a valuable resource for all who seek to recognize the pain of mental illness. I believe that reviewers and readers alike will embrace this new energy and will praise this scholarly contribution.

Moskovitz is especially adept with analogies, using everyday situations to clarify his points rather than just adorn the text. He imparts that while there is no drug just for BPD, some drugs help with specific symptoms, and he dispenses practical advice to family and professionals as well as patients.
From The Jerusalem Post
Moskovitz offers a coherent picture of this disorder as a distinct syndrome...the author conveys, in a very empathetic and touching way, his understanding of what it feels like to be borderline.
From Psychiatric Times
This is a book where empathic insights. clinical wisdom and therapeutic optimism will usefully inform anyone who is interested in understanding BPD patients. This book...is distinguished by a dedicated effort to convey vividly and understandably a great deal about people with the disorder.
