    In this compelling book, the authors present an innovative therapeutic model for understanding and treating adults from emotionally abusive or neglectful families - families the authors call narcissistic. Narcissistic families have a parental system that is, for whatever reason (job stress, alcoholism, drug abuse, mental illness, physical disability, lack of parenting skills, self-centered immaturity), primarily involved in getting its own needs met. The children in such narcissistic family systems try to earn love.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I am visually impaired and can not "read" this book-if you can, avoid the torture of the narration and do it!

    I am four chapters into the book and find the information interesting. I want desperately to continue listening but find the narration absolutely painful to listen to. I read the posted reviews before I bought the book and a reviewer wrote a great deal about the poor narration. I thought "It can't possibly be THAT bad!" Well, it can-and it is almost unbearable. This is an academic book and the narrator has added sighs and irritation into lines that are supposed to be coming from a therapist. Throughout most of the book the words are disjointed and robotic. It sounds like a "type to talk" communication device for the disabled. I need the information being provided but I may have to look for a different version from another vendor because I don't think I can stand this for another 5.5 hours. Finally. to the previous reviewer who warned me-I wish I had listened!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good information on the subject being presented.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Karen White?

    ANYONE!!!!! Although in fairness, part of the problem is the disjointed recording,


    Was The Narcissistic Family: Diagnosis and Treatment worth the listening time?

    I don't know if I will get through the book listening to this narrator, The book may be good-but no amount of knowledge may be worth the audio pain I am experiencing.
