Publisher's Summary

Still struggling from the effects of dating a narcissist?

Many people do and sadly there is very little information available to be found online or in the written research, or with counselors and therapists that can help. Narcissistic victim syndrome is not officially recognized, nor is it widely even known.

Even when it is accepted, recognized and known not many people seem to know what to do about it to heal it… The fact is being in a relationship with a narcissist over a long period of time has long lasting traumatic effects that can be extremely catastrophic to the person suffering them.

Do the following symptoms sound familiar?

  • Ruined self confidence
  • Doubting yourself and your sanity
  • Mood swings
  • Sleeplessness
  • Extreme weight loss or weight gain
  • Uncharacteristic jealousy/ insecurity
  • Feeling like you don’t know the difference between right and wrong
  • Extreme paranoia (being turned into an obsessive detective)
  • Endless, repetitive obsessive thinking about your ex
  • Constantly trying to find explanations for what has happened
  • Feelings of helplessness and despair
  • A desire to self isolate
  • Feeling desperately misunderstood
  • Overwhelming feelings of loss and grief
  • Extreme bouts of rage
  • An inability to be comfortable with yourself
  • Strange dreams
  • Sudden inexplicable anxiety followed by rapid dips into depression

The list goes on....

You are dating a narcissist, and if you haven’t figured it out already, they will never, ever change.

You can stay in the relationship and be unhappy, or you can choose to never date a narcissist again. It is not easy, I know. Because I have been there. I was you.

They are smart enough to know what you are looking for at the level of your core values and mold themselves to appear to represent that whilst provoking as much sympathy in you for them as they can.

But beneath the mask of a shy, vulnerable and “good person” something far more sinister lurks.

  • A social chameleon who would wear a completely different identity depending on who they were talking to
  • A sneaky, underhanded way of operating in the world that only those closest to them ever get a glimpse of
  • A person whose actions rarely match their words

“They seemed so good-hearted and vulnerable, I just wanted to help…”
“Maybe my ex is right, maybe it really is me….”
Am I just being paranoid?
“Nobody understands!”

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had clients tearfully admit this to me in state of absolute despair.

What you need now:

  • Someone who has been through the same experiences you have and understands them from the inside
  • Someone who has the knowledge, training, education and experience working on himself and others to lead you through the emotional sh*tstorm that breaking with a narcissist can create

I can’t promise you that listening to this book is going to be a “total cure”, but I can promise that if you apply yourself diligently, take notes, listen and re-listen to the chapters, follow all instructions to the letter, with a tenacious resolve to get better, you will feel an instant decrease in anxiety within the first 24 hours and should see huge improvements within the first three days.

This is not hype, this is what my audience commonly reports.

A good start

It's a decent look into a very dark personality disorder. Not to heavy to understand for anyone new to narcissistic abuse. I recommend listening for someone trying to make sense of the confusion and overall trauma for having dealt with a narcissist.

honest and hard to hear but worth every minute

I learned I had gone from a covert narcissist to an overt. Very hard to hear but better than me wasting another 18 years in another abusive relationship

I highly recommend this book.

This book has been the turning point in helping me to move forward after the devastating abuse our family has suffered. It brought me peace I couldn't find anywhere else. I only wish I had read it before our 4 years of hell. This book will help you recognize personality types and make wise choices. It's a must read.

Great one!

The book has a lot of meat in it. I like the fact that it does not tell me to make a choice but it gives me an insight on the big picture, so I can make the decision myself.

LIFE CHANGING

This book helped me so much. I felt like I was drowning after a 8 yr relationship with a narcissit and just went through the discard phase yet again.

Great Advice for Women

This book is quite long, but quite good advice. The two biggest take always for me were: first, properly vetting a man during the early phases of a relationship to recognize issues and weed out men as needed-- early on. Second, the author is drumming into the brains of all women empowering thoughts. This is not a "how do I please my man to get him or keep him" book. This is a book that does enlighten women about the inner workings of men but puts the most emphasis on strengthening the power of internal self worth. The strength and resolve "Spartan" mindset the author is trying to awaken in women is a profound way to navigate through life and relationships. And ultimately, a strong healthy inner "Spartan" self is what is most desirable!

Absolutely love this book!!!

Well, it is harsh truth, but I am glad I've learned about it. I'm still reading it because you actually going to need time to follow the advise. The author requires you to put the book down and work on things from time to time - this is the only way this book will make a difference in your life. Honestly, I 've learning from this book much more than even from much more expensive books and portals. People already started to tell me that I look much more confident and even more beautiful. I will continue to read it and then maybe come back to it as to a valuable textbook.

This Book Is Amazing!

Total game changer. This book is amazing. It's like my bible. I've read this book about a million times and go back to certain chapters when I need a refresher. He is honest and blunt and can be harsh and if you can get past that without getting your panties in a twist, then you'll see that this book is truly amazing and eye-opening. Yes, he uses strong language. So what? He gets his point across. If you get offended easily, then this book probably isn't for you. But if you are ready to stop being so basic and letting men continue to manipulate and use you and become the spartan that you are meant to be... then buy the book!
