Publisher's Summary

Do you have a narcissist, sociopath, or psychopath in your life, or think that you might?

Do you continually feel anxious around someone in your life, but can’t pinpoint why?

Do conversations seem to go off track, leaving you feeling knocked off balance and confused?

Does it feel like they are making your life a living hell, but they insist that you are too sensitive, crazy, or to blame?

Perhaps you know you are being manipulated or abused, but don’t know how to make it stop. The Narcissist’s Playbook can help.

Some of the topics covered in The Narcissist’s Playbook are:

  • What manipulation is and isn’t.
  • How to spot manipulative behaviors early (and why most people struggle with this).
  • How and why people get caught up with manipulators, and why they have a hard time breaking free.
  • How to identify the emotional “hook” that is keeping you stuck in manipulation and what you can do about it.
  • How to effectively disable manipulation as it is happening.
  • How to identify the common personality traits that are frequently exploited by manipulators.

You can take back your life. The Narcissist’s Playbook tells you how.

Great in helping to Understand Manipulative types

I am so glad that I got this book on audible, I will purchase the paper form so I can have some references to refer back to when I want and need to. It really helped me to understand person with this manipulative behavior and it is different forms of it. I'm dealing with a daughter in law that has this behavior, she learned from abuse from her father & mother. Unfortunately with her behavior our son is sucked into this but will tell you he is not, and he is not brain washed. We can see with his behavior change, is because of her having such subtle ways of introducing her ways at looking at things, she knew he was a target before they started dating, then my husband & I became her target. She got from us what she could, monetarily, and our son. She has thrown us away, but our son just can't see her behavior yet, as not healthy on how you treat others and no appreciation. She continues to play victim, and not recognize her attacks on people & relationships. I would definitely recommend this book.

Best Book on how to stop being targeted

This is the best book I have read/ heard on how to identify the red flags and stop being targeted by manipulative people. This book have validated so many feelings I have had. It has helped me to see exactly how many people in my life have and are draining my energy and taking advantage of me. It has given me the courage to do what is right for me and to stop doubting my intuition.

A must for anyone in a narcissistic relationship

If you’re considering buying this audiobook then buy it. The author is really therapeutic to listen to. She explains manipulation and the different tactics used so well. And gives workable exercises on how to overcome falling prey to one again. I’ve found it really useful and recommended it to friends. A must have for anyone in a narcissistic relationship. I have bought the book so that I can dip in and out and go over key sections for me. I am definitely glad I listened to the audiobook first though as I find it more helpful being read by the author.

Life changing lessons taught with heart!

Dana Morningstar is an exceptional person, author, educator and broadcaster on the topic of narcissism / problematic behaviour in relationships and healing after abuse. Her wisdom on this subject - achieved through professional and personal experience - is invaluable and she shares it in such a sensitive, yet powerful way that resonates, captivates you and stays with you. Dana provides the information required to establish boundaries as a solid foundation for healthy relationships. Through her books and weekly livestream on YouTube, I have learned so many skills to enable me to establish clear boundaries for the first time in my life, appreciate and value myself, create a life that nourishes me and only accept healthy interactions and relationships that I am deserving of.

School curriculums would benefit from Dana’s teachings so that children could establish healthy boundaries from a young age which would make for a much healthier and happier society.

Thank you for your tireless effort, work and teachings in this area, Dana. They are sincerely appreciated and have helped so many people to thrive after abuse and develop healthy relationships, often for the first time in their lives. In your words: There is so much right about you 💜

Great self assessment and help

Gave me a good foundation to recognise why I've been manipulated so easily by my 2 long term relationships and not realised till it was to late, gives you good insights to yourself and the behavior of others, boundaries or lack of them, gives you the tools to help you not allow this to happen again, I have read this twice and will dip back into it many more times
