Summary

Gaslighting

What it is, how you can spot it - and how you can break free

He's the charmer - the witty, confident but overly controlling date. She's the woman on your team who always manages to take credit for your good work. He's the neighbour who swears you've been putting your rubbish into his bins or the politician who can never admit to a mistake. 

Gaslighters are master controllers and manipulators, often challenging your very sense of reality. Whether it's a spouse, parent, coworker or friend, a gaslighter distorts the truth - by lying, withholding, triangulation and more - making the victims question their own reality and sanity. Dr Stephanie Sarkis delves into this hidden manipulation technique, covering gaslighting in every life scenario, sharing:  

  • Why gaslighters seem so 'normal' at first  
  • Warning signs and examples  
  • Gaslighter 'red flags' on a first date   
  • Practical strategies for coping  
  • How to coparent with a gaslighter  
  • How to protect yourself from a gaslighter at work  
  • How to walk away and rebuild your life    

With clear-eyed wisdom and empathy, Dr Sarkis not only helps you determine if you are being victimised by a gaslighter - she gives you the tools to break free and heal.

USA based guidance and info

Helpful book to identify gas lighting behaviour, but it’s very frustrating as it is heavily geared towards the USA and constantly references the downloadable pdf for help and advice...which again is only useful in the USA. I’m glad I’ve listened to it and there are some helpful hints to follow but I’m not sure the UK is ready for this phenomenon!
Good ways to identify gas lighters in the work, home, family and even yourself. On the whole, an interesting read and a potential life saver to some! Literally!

This was good!

Insightful with ample examples, the speaker is clear and articulate and easy to follow. At times can be repetitive, but still very good.

Informative and Eye-opening.

The first time I heard of the term 'gaslighting' was on a a YouTube channel by Brainy Dose. At first I thought that the concept of 'gaslighting' was strange. After watching the video I thought to myself that I would like to understand this concept a little bit better. So I decided to purchase this audiobook. This audiobook expanded my understanding even further and made me reflect on past relationships where I also was a victim of 'gaslighting'.

This audiobook has been well written and well-researched. Please purchase it. It will really open your eyes and help you to understand about the dangers and deceitfulness of 'gaslighting'.
