Summary

The first step in narcissism therapy is to accept it. Psychologists say that it's a half war to recognize an illness, and it's great for narcissistic patients. When the patient knows that he or she has a medical condition, he or she can take practical steps to try to improve as a person consciously. He is a good psychiatrist or psychologist who can help the person to improve self-esteem, rationality and acceptability, and take other sensations into consideration.

Amazing

I LOVED this book. It truly changed my life, so I had to write a review. If you are struggling with dealing with a narcissist, this is a must-listen. It validated all of my feelings and gave me clarity about what was really going on in my relationship. It also gave amazing tips on how to heal and move on. So happy I found this book and I love how it explains things in a way that is easy to understand. I listen to it twice already and highlighted so much of it I should have colored everything. Truly a great book. I highly recommend it for anyone dealing with a narcissist. it!!

Amazing!

I'm a daughter of a covert narcissistic mother. This book was awesome - felt like a big, warm hug from someone who understands. Debbie illustrates the patterns of covert narcs well and I appreciate her observations and empathy towards children of covert narcs. The validation was healing.

Interesting content marred by robotic delivery

I would dissuade anyone from buying this on Audible. The book appears to be recorded by a robot who can’t pronounce the words Stoic or Seneca. It’s very odd and not up to the usual standard of the books on here. Terrible.

I sent this to my mom who has recently left a narcissistic abusive relationship but didn’t recognize it as such. After I love how it explains things in a way that is easy to understand. I listen to it twice already and highlighted so much of it I should have colored everything. Truly a great book. I highly recommend it for anyone dealing with a narcissist.ing this she told me how helpful it was for her in seeing things in a new light when it comes to her marriage. Hearing that meant so much. If it can help her I think it can really help others too.

Excellent

Not understanding what or why things were happening in my relationship, this book really helped me understand my gut feelings. I believe that the author is spot-on in her discussion of Narcissism. I recommend for anyone looking for help who has been in this kind of abusive relationship.

Contents doesn't reflect description

It was as if I was listening to a completely different book! The description doesn't reflect the content, I don't even remember hearing the word narcissist. I agree with other comments that the delivery was very robotic.

I absolutely love this book.

No one should have to go through abuse as this little girl did. Emotional abuse is worse than physical abuse in my opinion. Just because you can't see the scars it doesn't mean they are not there. This audiobook was good except it was hard to listen because it made me sad.

Nice book.

This has been a fantastic help to me, both as a child of a parent who behaved as described and as a therapist who works with children. I pray for further guidance when working with patients and using the knowledge gained from this audiobook to increase the help offered to others and to healing my own struggles.

Great audiobook

Great audiobook, easy listen. Extremely informative. It gives you an in-depth perception of a narcissist. Do you love one? In a relationship with one? Is your child a narcissist?

It is a very true insightful listen.

It is a very true insightful listen. Clear and concise ways to achieve the desired outcome and comes with exercises and other resources to help you study. I already knew most of this information because I’m curious about the topic but if this is the first audiobook you listen toward understanding yourself it will be very beneficial.

Well explained.

One of the best audiobooks. This audiobook has all the guidance to get you to where you want to be. It is thoroughly researched to provide you with the information needed to break free. It was also designed specifically for the children of narcissists to grow into their own individual while teaching them how to let go and say goodbye to their pain and confusion.

This book is amazing. It has really opened my eyes and allowed me to look at a situation I was in from an outside perspective. It has allowed me to see what is truly going on and gave me answers I’ve been seeking for years. It even answered questions I didn’t know I had. It was literally like listening about my relationship word for word. I highly recommend this book!!

I absolutely love this book.

I absolutely love this book. It has been an eye-opener to listen about the person I am married to. Now I need to make a very hard decision whether or not to stay or go. To live like this forever or to embrace change.. Thank you so much for a very enlightening book. This has been the best book I have to listen, that addresses how a CN acts and why they do the things they do.. Very interesting.

If you need to hear it from another person who has been there, not a therapist, but just another human being; if you need validation, THIS is the book for you on this subject. It changed my life.

Great listen!

This book was so eye-opening for me. We all know the “obvious” narcissist but this explains in such simple terms the more subtle type. It helped me move on from a painful relationship and understand how secretly manipulative can be. Fast, great listen!
