    One thought on “Character Styles”

    1. So much! Read this for an Advanced Individual Counseling class -in my PhD program- and this book was so well written and approachable. Whether you are interested in psychology or just interested in people's different character styles, this book is interesting and very insightful. One of those textbooks you don't sell at the end of the semester for cash.

    2. Phenomenal perspective on the personality disorders. Would be of interest even to those who are not in the therapy profession.

    3. An excellent and very approachable overview of character styles, expressed as a continuum of known mental illness through healthy states. Developmental approach.
