Publisher's Summary

Have you ever met a particularly arrogant and conceited person? Completely focused on her needs and desires? And who doesn't seem to be the least bit interested in other people's?

Do you think your partner is manipulating you?

If you said yes, you might have had something to do with the so-called pathological narcissist. Or maybe you've lived or still live in a relationship with him/her.

Narcissistic relationships are problematic because the partner often is clueless as to the character of the person he/she is dealing. And what is even more baffling is the addiction bond the victims form with narcissistic abusers. Although narcissists are remarkable for their lack of empathy, they have enough awareness of the subjective emotional states of others to use this to engage in psychological manipulation and mind control. Due to the narcissistic partner’s “false self,” the charismatic mask he or she projects to society, the victim often feels isolated and is unlikely to have his or her experiences validated by friends, family and society.

This book is composed of six manuscripts that deal in depth the different aspects of narcissistic relationships:

  • Narcissistic Abuse
  • Narcissism and Codependency
  • Narcissist and Empath
  • Healing After Narcissistic Abuse
  • Dark Psychology Secrets
  • Dark Psychology and Manipulation

I have also included two books on dark psychology to give you a 360° picture of all the mental manipulation techniques that toxic people can inflict on those around them. And especially, how to fight them effectively.

Would you like to finally find a resource to understand a narcissist and figure out how to get rid of him/her?

You will learn:

  • The secret languages of the narcissists 
  • Five tips for neutralizing the impacts of narcissistic abuse 
  • How to break the bond of addiction with the abuser 
  • How to spot covert emotional manipulation in relationships 
  • How to defend yourself from deceptions 
  • How to become autonomous through easy steps 
  • The healing procedure

There was no blame only guidance

I liked the way this audio-book gave examples and never victimized the person seeking help. There was no blame only guidance. You felt that you were still in charge of your destiny and dignity.

Not A very well written book on a sensitive topic.

This is one of the most poorly written books on narcissistic abuse that I have ever read, so to speak. It doesn't address mamy of the topics or feelings that some of us need to read about as victims of this horrible type of abuse. I did not find this book useful in any way. At times, I almost found it condescending. Perhaps it depends on who you have been abused by in this manner like a parent, significant other or spouse, but I don't think that should matter. Narcissistic abuse is all the same; the narcissist just goes after his or her target in a different manner. This is a very sensitive topic for so many of us, and I don't feel the writer handled it with the sensitivity it deserves. Therefore, after not even being able to complete chapter 4 of this book, I am respectfully asking Audible for a full credit refund to my account.

Perhaps my experiences with this type of abuse were too severe to rely on.a book. This might be a perfect author and narrative for.

Anxiety? This book is all you need!

The greatest book imaginable about conquering anxiety. Barry's approach is absolutely effective. Look no further if anxiety has you in its grips. Barry's book, along with magnesium supplements, helped me immeasurably.

It has every right to boast

By this wonderful book you can understand human manipulation and listening emotions, hidden or otherwise. This book also boasts of containing some of the best human manipulation hacks I may need to grasp each human better, and it has every right to boast.
