Publisher's Summary

Narcissistic Personality Disorder is a severe psychological condition that ruins relationships because a narcissist is a self-absorbed individual who only sees things one way, which is their way. In the world of a narcissist there is no room for successful relationship attributes such as mutual consideration or give or take and as a result any relationship that a narcissist is involved in is a lopsided one that solely favors the narcissist. Being involved in a relationship with a narcissist can be a difficult one, mainly because a narcissist has an unrealistic and an inflated view of themselves and suffer from a decreased ability to identify with or recognize the needs or feelings of others, so in turn the partner of a narcissist suffers.

Do you feel that you are in a relationship with someone that suffers from the narcissistic personality disorder? Are you a narcissist yourself and would like an understanding of this personality order so that you can salvage your relationship? In his audiobook entitled Narcissism Decoded author Michael Wright explains in great detail how to identify and effectively deal with the Narcissistic Personality Disorder in your relationship. You will learn the following:

  • The characteristics of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder as well as its subtypes
  • How to tell if you are living with a narcissist Common causes of Narcissistic Personality Disorder
  • The problems and difficulties which can arise when in a relationship with a narcissist
  • Important warning signs that it may be time for you to get out of a toxic relationship with a narcissist

Succinct exploration of the NPD disorder!

What made the experience of listening to Narcissism Decoded the most enjoyable?

I liked that the author clearly explains NPD accurately, and gives very helpful advice on when to get out and how to stay out.

What about Frank George’s performance did you like?

I liked the passionate intensity of the narrator's performance.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I have a parent that suffers from NPD and I am now at the low-contact stage of our "relationship". Reading this book was very timely in that my NPD parent is pushing for "business as usual" which really means "abuse as usual". This book has helped me to hold onto my low-contact boundary. I will re-read it again when feeling manipulated.

Any additional comments?

I have read so many books on NPD. This one is one of the best.

Nice, straightforward overview

STORY - Someone I care for has traits that seem slightly abnormal, and I've been wondering about the underlying cause. I began to suspect narcissism and got this book to see what I could learn. Yup, that's what's going on (in my non-professional opinion.) Anyway, this book is interesting and gives some insight as to what might be going on in the fragile brain of the narcissist in your life. It has helped me to be less angry with this person and to understand that deep-rooted insecurity is actually at the base of the problem. For this I am very thankful!

PERFORMANCE - Okay job.

OVERALL - Even if you're not living with a narcissist, you probably know one at work or socially. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in being able to recognize and better understand narcissistic personality disorder.

Dry Material

Because of its nature, this material is rather a dry read. Narrator didn't help. But the material is informative, helpful and easy to comprehend, with good description of medical terms used.

HORRIBLE narrator (Frank George). Info is good tho

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would preface any recommendation to a friend by saying "Try to ignore the inappropriate pauses, accents, emphasis on words and other narrative errors in order to listen to the author's words and true meaning/intent. If I find another book that I really want to listen to that is narrated by Frank George, I doubt I will do it -- it's too annoying and frustrating. If only he had read the book in advance of just walking up to the microphone! Or if only the author, Michael Wright, had listened to the full narration before allowing this to be released!

Regarding the book and the message/info in the book, I think it's good, basic and informative -- a great way to learn about some of the fundamentals of narcissism.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Frank George?

ANYONE!!!! Ideally the author, as he would most likely know and understand where the emphasis should be in certain sentences and phrases. Frank George was HORRIBLE -- and I really think he either didn't "get" the subject or simply didn't take the time to prepare and rehearse in order to pause and emphasis in appropriate places/ways. REALLY a big distraction. I would cast myself WAY before him!

No hype

Well written, without the usual hype for a powerful topic. Clear and concise. Non judgemental towards the narcissist and practical help for the partner.

Easy to understand

Good beginners book on Narcissism. Gives clear symptoms and broad situational examples. Will look for another book that explains how to cope when children are involved.

Thank you

After reading this book I feel like a big burden has been removed. I've had so many questions about my partner and labeled it as so many things without ever realizing that multiple causes could be at the route of narcissism. As a book explains it is not my place to diagnose but to be aware of the symptoms and to seek professional help forfurther diagnosis. This book was an excellent start and without judging or diagnosing I will take the necessary steps and trying to find out the issue. I am so glad I found this book

Useless

Wasted my time and money. Not helpful at all. I am very disappointed with the generic information and the narrator was awful.

A difficult subject - covered well.

Good insights into this challenging disorder. I found the content well rounded, fair and it leave the reader with what I believe to be good options. One weakness is managing the immediate family. The narcissists family may want to support them in their denial and then there is the issue...what do you tell the kids. However the book gave me more insight and that is appreciated.
