I just received this book today, so I obviously haven't read it cover-to-cover yet, but seeing as it had no other reviews, I thought I'd provide a bit more information.
The book seems very well written, with much emphasis on how to apply DBT to different disorders. It does not, however, focus much on treating borderline personality disorders, as Linehan has already done this well (see his books, Cognitive-behavioral treatment for borderline personality disorder and Skills training manual for borderline personality disorder, for classics on the subjects).
The book is aimed at clinicians in private practice, and a chapter deals with issues such as the lack of a treatment team, etc. Furthermore, the author starts by explaining each chapter so you know which one to skip if you're pressed for time. There are also very good chapters summaries at the end of each chapter, which reminded me of good school textbooks.
The trait that really makes this book stand out to me is the included CD-ROM. It contains hundredths of PowerPoint Slides that explain the key concept, to be presented in a group therapy. It also contains over 30 worksheets to be printed and photocopied, which appear to be very well designed. Although these are things a clinician could design himself, they really do save a whole lot of time. Because the slides and the worksheets reflect the basic concepts of DBT, they could be used to treat a wide variety of disorders, including borderline personality disorder.
Overall, great book, can't wait to read the rest!
