Now in its Third Edition, this book clarifies the distinctions between the vast array of personality disorders and helps clinicians make accurate diagnoses. It has been thoroughly updated to incorporate the changes in the forthcoming DSM-5. Using the classification scheme he pioneered, Dr. Millon guides clinicians through the intricate maze of personality disorders, with special attention to changes in their conceptualization over the last decade. Extensive new research is included, as well as the incorporation of over 50 new illustrative and therapeutically detailed cases. This is every mental health professional's essential volume to fully understanding personality.


--Robert F. Krueger, PhD, Hathaway DistinguishedProfessor Department of Psychology, University of Minnesota
"The current text, Disorders of Personality: Introducing a DSM/ICD Spectrum from Normal to Abnormal, is the third edition of this classic within the field of personality disorder. Millon's greatest skill is his scholarly acumen, and this is on full display within this rich, erudite volume. If clinicians, scholars, or researchers whish to know anything about the history of personality disorder classification, the first place to look would be this book. It is likely that all questions will be answered.... This third edition does include new material. Millon has further developed his evolutionary theoretical model, he has added discussions of 50 new therapy cases, he indicates the normal variants of each personality disorder, he includes a dimensional schema of traits for therapeutic planning, and he even introduces a completely new personality disorder diagnosis: the ebullient/exuberant/turbulent personality type.... The strength of this text is in its coverage of the far past and recent history of personality disorder conceptualization and classification, and that does not change much. Plus, to Millon's credit, although he presents these volumes as companions to a respective edition to the diagnostic manual, he has not revised his nomenclature simply to conform to what is included in the DSM. He continued to endorse the passive-aggressive and sadistic personality disorders when they were removed, and now he continues to endorse the histrionic, paranoid, and schizoid personality disorders." --Thomas A. Widiger (PsycCRITIQUES, September 28, 2011, Vol. 56, No. 39, Article 1)"[This third edition] goes beyond previous editions in its breadthand depth of understanding, representing a crowning achievement inMillon's already unparalleled career. Essential reading for allresearchers and practitioners who seek to understand personalityand its relevance to contemporary clinical problems."
--John Livesley, M.D., PhD, Professor Emeritus,Department of Psychiatry, The University of British Columbia
"This a masterly and erudite volume. Beautifully written by oneof the most respected scholars in the field, it provides anauthoritative and encyclopaedic overview of all aspects ofpersonality disorder. At the same time, Dr. Millon provides anelegant and integrative theoretical structure that enriches ourunderstanding of personality pathology. This stimulating volume isan essential resource for anyone wishing to treat, study, orunderstand these complex disorders."
--John M. Oldham, M.D., Senior Vice President and Chiefof Staff The Menninger Clinic, President-Elect, AmericanPsychiatric Association
