What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Little scientific backing cited and largely subjective generalisations. However, Chapter 14 onwards is a preview on a new book by the same author about verbal and emotional abuse in relationships - this very short preview offers possible explanations behind personality disorders (including NPD) which I think would have been a welcome addition to this title.

Has Help! I'm in Love with a Narcissist turned you off from other books in this genre?

no

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narration is overly dramatic and this trivialises the subject matter. The narrator doesn’t seem emotionally invested in the book and this detachment to the content shows through incongruent intonation etc. He sounds a lot like a television news broadcaster.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Help! I'm in Love with a Narcissist?

The first three chapters - disclaimers are tedious and lengthy.

Any additional comments?

Offers little advice regarding a solution except ‘leave the relationship.’ or in the case that the reader themselves is a narcissist, simply ’Stop being a narcissist!’ which I found hilarious, if nothing else! No detail on how this can be achieved. People who are in love with narcissists know they should leave - it’s actually doing it that is the difficult thing.

waste of time

This was ridiculously oversimified. I was shocked to find out the cd was over with very little said. its such a complete. topic one wonders how the author can have whittled it down to facile nothing. don't get this book. There must be better ones out there. oh. and the narrator. He read like Grade 2 child saying hid lines in a school play. stilted monotone very automated and throughly unprofessional.
