"For Some Time I have looked for a very readable book on living with narcissism that also had clarity about addiction and codependency. Eleanor Payson has written an easy to understand guide to navigate one's way out of the labyrinth that narcissism makes...Four stars for a readable, useful book therapists can give their patients." Patrick J. Carnes, Ph.D. author of Out of the Shadows --Patrick J. Carnes, Ph.D. author of Out of the Shadows
"You will recognize the narcissistic personality disorder so well described by Payson as an all too common affliction among those who wield great political and corporate power in contemporary society. This book is a useful guide to recognizing and confronting the reality, which is a first step toward nullifying the power and influence of the afflicted over our lives." David C. Korten, Ph.D. author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World --David C. Korten, Ph.D. author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World

After reading this book, I was able to finally understand and put a name to problems in several relationships I have been struggling through...basically my entire life. All the red flags that had come up now have a name, and I know why I have had such a challenging life.
This book triggered a journey of self-discovery for me, of epic proportions, which has been powerful and enormously healing. In fact, probably life-saving. I am still working through many issues, but credit this book with making me sit up, take notice, and take action to improve my life and the lives of family members similarly-afflicted.
I would recommend this book to anyone, because it is interesting and easy to read; too, all of us have at one time or another run into a narcissist and failed to understand their motivations, and this book does a great job of explaining them and providing guidance on how to remove their negative influence from one's life.
This book should be part of every woman's self-discovery reading list, particularly since us women tend to be so affected by narcissists and to have our self-esteem easily crushed by those needing our nurturing.
