    "Great book"

    If you think your mother may have been narcissistic (or emotionally withholding), this is a great (and painful) read. She gives you new perspectives of how to heal from your childhood, and very effective ways of overcoming.

    "Very Helpful"
    Any additional comments?

    I found this book incredibly eye opening and helpful. As the daughter of a narcissistic mother, it was comforting to hear that I was not alone in feeling as I do - but it was also very healing. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who suspects they have a parent that is narcissistic.

    "hated this"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    don't know


    Has Will I Ever Be Good Enough? turned you off from other books in this genre?

    TOTALLY


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She has a cloying, overly sweet style.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator (author) had a narcissistic mother herself and interjects that into the text. Made me wonder how professional and detached her information was.
