Publisher's Summary

The difficulties experienced by adult children of narcissists can manifest themselves in many ways - for example, physical self-loathing that takes the form of overeating, anorexia, or bulimia; a self-destructive streak that causes poor job performance and rocky personal relationships; or a struggle with the self that is perpetuated in the adult's interaction with his or her own children. These dilemmas are both common and correctable, Elan Golomb tells us.

With an empathic blend of scholarship and case studies, along with her own personal narrative of her fight for self, Dr. Golomb plumbs the depths of this problem, revealing its mysterious hold on the affairs of otherwise bright, aware, motivated, and worthy people.

Trapped in the Mirror explores:

  • The nature of the paralysis and lack of motivation so many adults feel
  • Stress and its role in exacerbating childhood wrongs
  • Why so many of our relationships seem to be reruns of the past
  • How anger must be acknowledged to be overcome
  • And, most important, how even the most traumatized self can be healed

    "Groundbreaking book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book because of the excellent experience and insights of the author. It is an excellent look into the minds and hearts of the children of narcissists.


    What does Angela Brazil bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love audio books in general because of my busy life. Angela's reading style is unique and I can understand how some might find it difficult but I did not. Angela's diction is excellent and her style of reading helped keep me focused on the content of the book. It helped me think through the word she was saying so that I can integrate the concepts into my life.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm listening to it a second time already after just finishing it. It is that important to me.
