Publisher's Summary

Have you ever thought that someone in your life currently or someone you were involved with in the past is a narcissist? Perhaps you think that you may be living with one. You, or someone you know, could even have horrific stories to tell of Machiavellian encounters with your “loved one” that just wouldn’t stop. You may think that you are being treated like an “object” used for their every desire or used like you are a slave, and you just can’t understand why.

Some poor souls who believe they have been victims of narcissism tell of going through hell, then ending up divorced and millions of dollars in debt. Or you are positive your boss is a narcissist, and you need to figure out how to deal with it or you are going to “go crazy” or resign before you do.

Maybe people have accused you of being a narcissist, and you think this accusation is just a nasty way of telling you they think you are selfish. Of course, you are better than most everyone else. Why can’t the world just accept it? Why won’t everybody do what you tell them to do? They know you are always right! Or have you ever feared that because you have so many “broken” relationships that you are indeed a narcissist?

Narcissism is an often misunderstood and a misused term. There are many questions about it and some strong opinions about it as well. Here are some of the common comments and questions “heard on the street” about the hot topic of narcissism:

What is narcissism anyway? Is it really a mental problem that some people have, or is it just a “bad personality type”? If it is a mental condition, how do you get it? Is it contagious? Is it “terminal’? Can it be treated with drugs? Why in the world would anybody call the love-of-self narcissistic? I heard that a certain amount of narcissism is healthy, and without having it, you are going to get trampled on in life. Is this true? Where did this term come from?

Once you have narcissism, if it is real, can anybody really do anything about it? Can a doctor help my spouse or my boss or not? If so, what kind of doctor?

I may not be able to address every one of your questions about narcissism, but by listening to this audiobook, you should get a good head start on the problem and perhaps be knowledgeable enough to know what to do next, or at least know where to seek additional information.

Resourceful

This book helped me understand that I am not a narcissist and also in my environment there are no people with such frustration. Yet it is useful for everyone to know what kind of disorder and how to diagnose it.

Gives you the details!

The author gives detailed information on how to contend with these people if you want or need to keep them in your life. If you are dealing with toxic narcissists, you may want to exclude them from your life for your own peace and emotional healing. You will never win with a narcissist. They will always get the last word.

Thanks

I liked it very much. It's one of the first books I listen about Narcissism & I learned much. It's very important to know little how an Abuser thinks & why he/she behaves the way they do !!

I believe THE problem in our world is that many families, corporations, workplaces, governments, media, entertainment, and even spiritual and religious organizations are functioning according to abusive values and promoting the normalization of this behavior.

fantastic


I have listen many books on narcissism, all of which I bought from Amazon.com This is the only book I feel that teaches you how to heal. Many books focus on being a victim and really do not help that much with recovery from narcissistic abuse.
