Most of all, I want to give the authors accolades for bringing forward (FINALLY!) the important relationship triad that involves the "Apath." This is a third person they bring in to elevate themselves and character assassinate the empath. This serves to prove that the predator is worthy, whether done through smear campaigns or distortion campaigns (either public, or whether behind the scenes in networking strategies). The role of the Apath, the person they enlist to side with them, is something that is not discussed or even mentioned in other books, and it is such a critical and unnerving part of the experience. Bravo to you for bringing it to light and defining its presence and how to manage that as well. A standing ovation to you for this. I'd love to see more on this, and how today's apath can also sometimes be an overlapping victim empath in some cases.
This was very well done, and will give a great eye-opening epiphany to many who are experiencing the puzzling maze of deception built by the sociopaths of our society. Great title, great topic, well done book. Highly recommended and a fabulous place to start reading on this topic that is misunderstood by so much of society. Oh, how charm can deceive.
It explains WHY a psychopath choses you. And its not because there's something wrong with you. Quite the opposite.
This knowledge empowered me. Reassured. And armed me with a vital "I know what you're thinking, and I'm not worth the trouble" -kind of self-knowledge.
Some predators like a challenge. Some think twice. Either way, this book gave me the sureness to fight smart.
It also explains why so many others are willing to not only turn a blind eye, but actually enable a psychopath! So Healing to finally understand!
Read it along with "The Sociopath Next Door". And "The Body Keeps The Score".
I can't recommend these enough. I even bought copies for friends.
credibility of the person that they are abusing serves as the source of their ability to ruin peoples' lives.
Very few authors EVER discuss the "third parties" that are everywhere in the lives of people who find themselves the victims of these profoundlydestructive people.
Thank you for this book.
