This book is well written and a valuable resource. I highly recommend it. But here's the thing,.... you can read this book (and it's a good one) and a dozen others on the subject ( because you will need to) ,... but it won't help you until you are willing to accept the fact that the other person (that caused you to reach for this book in the first place) is indeed a narcissist and that they are NEVER going to change,.... you will continue to suffer. And SUFFER YOU WILL. There's plenty of insight and wise advice in this book. But what it really does is confirm for you what you already know but don't want to admit to yourself because it's too painful. To finally grasp the notion that this person whom you love, is selfish, destructive, coercive, manipulative, deceptive and is sucking the life out of you,.... is a painful but ultimately liberating experience. Don't expect it to happen over-night though. It takes time for the fog to clear and your instincts to recalibrate. It's taken me the better part of a year to stop hurting from this destructive relationship. And I still have healing yet to accomplish. But I'm glad I had the self awareness and introspective ability to realize that I wasn't crazy and I wasn't to blame for what was happening to me. I just needed some validation.

Granted, I've read just about everything that's ever been written about narcissism, but this book was a complete waste of money. At the same time the authors seemed fairly well-educated about how hopeless these relationships are, they pretend to be telling you how to cope with one. Isn't that a contradiction in terms? I was actually expecting new information. Then, about halfway through, they propose using a visualization exercise telling you to think about and feel the feelings that the narcissist brings up in you, then put them into a bottle and let this bottle drift out to sea. They go on, "...you can face painful feelings about your relationship and ...can cast these feelings adrift when you need to." They have obviously never lived with or worked for a narcissist and have no idea, though they gave it great lip service, what it is like to live with one of these monsters. I wish I could cast this book adrift and get my money back, but it IS a workbook, and so now I've written in it. Too bad.
