Falling for a narcissist is easily done, don't worry you're certainly not alone. On the surface, they can show up as everything you ever wished for but as the veil starts to lift it can truly be a shock to the system. You can feel lonely, scared, and unsure of what the narcissist is going to do next. The unpredictability leaves you feeling vulnerable. Then comes the inevitable manipulations, mind control, and smear campaigns. The whole ordeal is made 10 times harder as the narcissist weaves their spells and start to influence people who are close to you.

I listened to the entire book in one sitting which was a first for me. After increasing the speed, the narration was easy to listen to. This book focuses mainly on romantic relationships with narcissists and it does a great job of detailing signs and illustrating scenarios to aid the reader in determining if this topic applies to their situation. I was disappointed that the book did not touch on keeping lines of communication open with narcissists with whom one shares children. The book also details how narcissists are formed but does not go into depth on how to minimize the impact of your child's narcissistic parent to prevent perpetuation of the cycle. Finally, this book takes a purely psychological stance and does not acknowledge or entertain the potential influence of faith or God in the relationships.
