    This is one of the best books from a Survivor s perspective I ve read The author describes her own painful and devastating journey with her Narcissistic mother and then the abusive Narcissistic man that was her husband for many years.It sthan just her story which I related to so much with both relationships but it s informative as to what Narcissist s do and how there are varying degrees of it It has a brilliant extensive section on gaslighting, most books cover it but this really dissec This is one of the best books from a Survivor s perspective I ve read The author describes her own painful and devastating journey with her Narcissistic mother and then the abusive Narcissistic man that was her husband for many years.It sthan just her story which I related to so much with both relationships but it s informative as to what Narcissist s do and how there are varying degrees of it It has a brilliant extensive section on gaslighting, most books cover it but this really dissects the crazy making way it messes you up I got so much from that.Another unique aspect I love about this book and watch my reviews go berserk on Narcissists as I m reading all I can get my hands on is the powerful advice given about how to divorce the Narcissist with the least amount of pain and damage This is excellent advice and it s US based but a lot can be applied to divorce anywhere The writing style is personal, I felt like the author and I were having a chat I read the book in one sitting and despite reading lots about this insidious form of abuse I got lots new from this.The chapter and messages on healing yourself are really good and if you are a Christian like me there are references to particular podcasts, YouTube videos and speakers to watch listen If you are not a Christian don t worry, the book will speak to anyone The Christian links are provided near the end However know that God abhors abuse and never expects you or your children to stay and suffer You may find some of those resources comforting.I ve hadthan one Narcissist in my life and I m not long out of an 11 year marriage that almost killed me in every way I know too well how even the strongest woman can end up not even being able to get out of bed and believe she s not doing enough to make her abuser happy Recovery from this abuse is not easy but so necessary so the pattern is not repeated.I highly recommend this book No doubt about it, this one will give you a lot from knowledge to a message to be kind on yourself Five stars from me Follow me on Goodreads orforrecommendations on books around this subject Booklover Catlady

    An experience that many would relate to, presented in a professional way without loosing the personal human emotional aspect of the bitterness and trauma one passes through.

  6. Dorette Skinner Dorette Skinner says:

    Not the best book in terms of writing skills, but relatable content and helpful advice in my preferred form story.I really wish I had no need to be reading survivors stories of narcissistic abuse, but here we are And hopefully I ll have one of my own to add soon For now I just find it helpful to know that I am not alone.

  7. Randi Randi says:

    This little book has a lot of good information for anyone who has been in the clutches of a narcissist, so I appreciate that However, the advice is minimal and fairly basic, so it s best used as an intro book on the subject.

  8. Caroline Abbott Caroline Abbott says:

    This author did a very good job describing life with a narcissist She used great examples from her own life She also interviewed several psychologists, who gave great input

    I love the message and received many great pockets of inspiration, but the grammatical errors and misprints drove me crazy
