"[Millon] masterfully integrates disparate systems of psychotherapy, as well as personality theory and clinical practice, in reminding us that psychotherapy is not, and never will be, a disembodied treatment of simple disorders, but rather textured interpersonal relationships with complex people. Brilliant in concept and amazing in scope!"--John C. Norcross, PhD, University of Scranton, President-elect, APA Division of Psychotherapy

"His freshly conceived focus on tailoring treatment modalities to fit individual patient's personality pattern adds an important new dimension to the psychological intervention literature."--Irving B. Weiner, PhD, University of South Florida

"Students of various disciplines, as well as seasoned mental health professionals, will undoubtedly return again and again to this volume to glean a deeper understanding of personality functioning and to develop a greater appreciation of how to approach these disorders therapeutically. This volume is sure to prove a classic in the field."--Jeffrey J. Magnavita, PhD, ABPP, Connecticut Center for Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy
