Publisher's Summary

If you feel overwhelmed by living with a narcissistic mother or cannot get rid of the trauma, then keep reading....

Helping a person with narcissism to heal is a challenging endeavor. You need to come up with a strategy to internalize and practice what you learn in this book. While you are working within this relationship, make sure you take care of yourself. This is important and requires respect for the model to work. Consult frequently. After each meeting, debrief. Exercise your health and well-being and take care of it. Do not customize the activities of narcissistic individuals.

Inside you will find an in-depth analysis of the disorder to enhance your understanding about it. As a result, you may change your perception about it and eventually view the victims differently. Similarly, a clear understanding puts off the myths and misconceptions associated with narcissistic personality disorder and gain grounds to support you in case of bullying or misinformation.

Anyone can go through this and no one should be discriminated for such an experience. Mothers with narcissistic personality disorder are more likely to seek therapy if they see it as a means to mend relationships. An important barrier to obtaining adequate professional therapy for narcissistic personality disorder arises from the nature of the disorder itself, as those afflicted with it are often unwilling or even unable to acknowledge the problem's presence.

A significant first step in promoting someone with NPD to undergo therapy is to convince them that the issue needs to be addressed. Keep in mind that it can be hard to circumvent someone with NPD's defense mechanisms and persuade them of the need for therapy. Approaching the situation without judgment or blame is useful and acknowledging that recovery is likely to be a long and continuous method. Only then will we be able to recognize our children, especially daughters, for who they are and help them achieve their complete, distinctive potential.

Inside you will find:

  • In-depth analysis of narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) that includes cause and treatment.
  • The different faces of narcissism and their distinct characteristics
  • Common characteristics of NPD and how to tell the extent of the disorder.
  • The roles that fathers should play to protect their daughters from narcissistic mothers.
  • Effects that you might experience in case your narcissistic mother is harsh on you and if nothing is done to stop it.
  • How the disorder affects your relationship with your mother both in the short and long term
  • Various ways that have proven to treat the disorder and how to go about them
  • How easy and feasible ending the narcissism legacy is.

Not worth listening to

This is not the first book on this topic that I have read. To say it's a chore to even get through the repetition is an understatement, it's not presented in a way that I even wanted to finish the book. I'm sorry to say I did not find it helpful. The attempt is there, just didn't work for me.

Narration or writing?

The information in the book was helpful however, I struggled listening to the book. As I didn’t have a printed copy, I’m not sure if the book was poorly written - bad sentence structure, frequent use of the wrong word and/or tense - or if it was poorly read. Either way, some of the narrator’s inflections were so off, I often wondered if this was her first time reading the content and if the author listened to the audio book before it’s release.

Awful Narration

I don’t normally feel the need to leave a negative review, but I wasn’t even able to finish listening to this book because the narration was poor. The narrator over-emphasizes so many words, does not have fluid cadence and emphasizes the wrong words. I kept trying to keep listening because I was interested in this subject matter, but about halfway through I just couldn’t take her narration any more and had to stop listening.

Very Insightful

I listened to this book and will say that the narrator was extremely dull and slow. I speed it up to 1.5 and a was able to get through it quickly. The content on the other hand was fantastic! Definitely worth reading.

Stuffed up

Difficult to listen to the audio when the narrator had a cold or sinus infection. Maybe wait until you feel better before doing the reading next time?

The narrator's voice was soothing and inviting - some choppy moments but otherwise loved to listen to her. The words and flo of this book were very clear and made it easier to understand the damage done - Im 52 and all this information is so helpful -It can be used for so many ages - I'm giving it as a reference for so many friends -Thank you!

Straightforward & helpful

So many people do not even begin to understand the crushing devastation this kind of abuse causes, but author obviously does. I have struggled for decades with my dysfunctional family/narcissistic mother and this book helped validate and encourage me.

great listen

The author practically described my childhood. I am glad that I had other people to confide in and to help me while growing up and that I found a psychiatrist who helped me discover that it wasn't me.

Awful recording, advice just days "get therapy"

Vitriolic and the seemingly personal experience of the author clouds ability to give advice based on facts.
