5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read - We all know these people., July 15, 2012
This review is from: Emotional Vampires: Dealing with People Who Drain You Dry, Revised and Expanded 2nd Edition (Paperback)
This book was riveting in that we ALL have these people in our lives - so we ALL should read it. We might be working with them, living with them, children of them, spouses to them. Either we can't or won't believe that people can be this way and they are so alternatingly charming and pleasant and then cruel that they actually are training us like lab rats to exhibit the behavior they want from us ... and we stay around because we somehow want to save them from themselves. Women especially - READ it - and then make your daughters read it! Know about them before you are reading it to understand what just happened to you! I started out with highlighter but gave up because I was highlighting everything as though the book was just about me and my specific situation. Good stuff. I've shared it with friends who are caught in the world of an emotional vampire and they thanked me. Don't hesitate. You'll swear the author is writing about someone you know.

We want to save them and so we undermine our common sense and reach out for what we believe, 'We could'a, should'a had! Phyllis
