Publisher's Summary

Covert narcissism is a hidden and concealed form of narcissism, making it all the more difficult for the abuser to be confronted or "outed" for their behavior. Covert narcissism is a passive-aggressive, hostile, and toxic form of abuse that makes victims feel hopeless, unheard, hurt, and confused by the abusers' behavior. 

When you think of a narcissistic personality, it's likely you think of a loud, grandiose, and "look at me" type of character. A lot of people don't realize that there is a much stealthier, more introverted form of narcissism, and therefore covert narcissists can often get away with their toxic behavior without being found out. 

I was in a relationship with a covert narcissist. I know the frustration, disappointment, anger, and humiliation a covert narc can make you feel. I understand the helplessness you feel when you're in a relationship that has such an invisible toxicity that you think no one would believe you if you told them about it. 

This audiobook, driven by my desire to help and connect with other victims of narcissistic abuse, aims to give you the knowledge you need to stand up to covert narcissistic abuse. The chapters include:

  • What Is a Covert Narcissist? 
  • The Six Giveaway Signs of a Covert Narcissist 
  • Can a Covert Narcissist Love? 
  • Confusing Conversations with a Covert Narcissist 
  • The Effects Covert Narcissism Has on You 
  • Setting Boundaries and Interacting with a Covert Narcissist 
  • Looking After You 
  • Ways to Leave a Vulnerable Narcissist 

I've been through a decade of narcissism and abuse, and I strive to support those who are or have been through this kind of emotional abuse. I hope this audiobook can someway in helping you understand the dynamics of a narcissistic relationship, but most of all, I hope it helps you find the strength to relinquish your role as a source of narcissistic supply to your abuser.

Good

Average amount of information and commentary that I have observed in half a dozen other books on this topic. They are all rearranging the same information, sometimes word for word. Nothing really stands out as ground breakingly different in this book , however I identify and am further validated with every new book I read on the topic as I come to terms with my situationship.

Excellent Investment of Time!

This book helped change my feelings from more empathy to more accountability for the Narc quicker than most any book yet. Very well communicated information here!

This is a very good book with a lot of valuable information

A lot of really good information for someone dealing with a covert narcissist. Good advice and insight on this little known subject. Help for those who are needing and searching for answers. The narrator for this book is wonderful.

More Like A Bullet Point Introduction

This didn’t seem like “a book” at all. I thought I was listening to the overview before the chapters began, but nope. Bam! This “book” was already over and done. Ridiculously shallow and short. I’d suggest seeking out the truly informative books that seemed to provide the creator of this with what amount to her overview bullet points which are being presented here as meaningful and informative content. It was empty information tossed out in a light way about a subject that is neither shallow or light. This isn’t a subject to just float over on the surface. The upbeat voice on the audible book was almost silly in this context. I’d suggest others spend their money wisely and consider the more in-depth, studied offering of The Passive Aggressive Covert Narcissist. I wish I could get my money back for this unfortunate purchase. Felt like I got taken advantage of by the author who apparently thought,”🤔well this audience should be easy to take advantage of”.

Very good summery of “covert” narcissism

Although this is a very short book, I do suggest learning more prior or after about general narcissism. This DOES however sum up exact attributes of “covert narcissism” and gives insight a lot more specifically about this type of narcissism and it’s done quite well.
