I don't have much life experience, and right now my dp is crippling my ability to pursue a more normal life. I have no idea how to act in a work environment, I have no post secondary education, I don't know how to be a good person, don't know how to form healthy relationships, I've never traveled, and I don't know how to talk to women. I'm 23 years old, and if my dpdr fades I"m going to feel like a complete loser. I really need a good book that could benefit someone at rock bottom like me. I think I might need relationship and social skills advice the most.

"How to Win Friends & Influence People" springs to mind.
I remember reading this book when I was in middle school, or maybe early high school, as I was hoping it would give me some kind of formula as to how to socialize.

The book wasn't very helpful, at least for my problem. As it seems more about manipulating people to get ahead in life than it is about making genuine friendships. At least, that's what I took away from the book.

For the absolute basics and unwritten social rules of behaviour and conduct, you might find something useful in Coping: A Survival Guide for People with Asperger Syndrome (even though you aren't exactly the intended reader!)
