This book was so good and so life changing that I sent a copy to my sister and have recommended the book to friends who have had disasterous relationships with men. As for me, six months ago I canceled a wedding and walked away from a man who I now understand was a toxic narcissist. Until I read the book, I could not stop weeping I was so wounded by his actions. Now, I UNDERSTAND that it was nothing I did or can ever change. He has a personality disorder.
I recommend this book for every woman (and man) who has ever had a romantic relationship with a selfish, hurtful person. You don't have to keep doing it. Read the book, understand, protect yourself, and be happy!
if i could give this book 6 stars i would. it helped me resolve some feelings i had more than counseling did. my counselor didn't know the person i dated well but reading this book really put me on the path to healing because it helped me realize when you're dealing with a narcissist it's not about you, nothing you do will change the person. period. it's hard to really accept that because we want to believe people can change but narcissism so ingrained in who a person is and how they think, the person isn't likely to change. there's a lot of repetition of the themes but i felt that was necessary to drive home the point and how toxic these people are. don't worry, if you're not in love with a narcissist then this is just interesting reading, it won't brainwash you into viewing everyone that way but oh if you were with a narcissist it helps you to understand what is/was going on that you and certainly nobody on the outside can comprehend.
as the authors say, they are not psychotherapists but they do pull together a plethora of relevant information and interviews. the book has lots of "real life" stories and advice that is so useful. you'll begin to see that the sad world that you had with your narcissist is so hurtful and damaging but you can get better and move on. the stories confirm you aren't crazy, they are!Read more ›
The book was easy to read and hard for me to put down. I'm now reading it through again. If anybody's had narcissistic parents, siblings, or romantic partner, I'd recommend this book, hands-down.
