Publisher's Summary

Still struggling from the effects of an abusive relationship?

Many people do, and sadly, there is very little information available to be found online, in the written research, or with counsellors and therapists that can help. The "gaslight effect" is not officially recognized, nor is it widely even known.

Even when it is accepted, recognized, and known, not many people seem to know what to do about it to heal it. The fact is, being in a relationship with a narcissist over a long period of time has long-lasting traumatic effects that can be extremely catastrophic to the person suffering them.

Gaslighting is "crazy-making". It makes you think that you’re actually going crazy.

Gaslighting is a way of hiding the abuse.

Gaslighting is lying with a goal.

The motive behind gaslighting is to make you think you’re crazy or that your memory doesn’t work right. So, you can’t trust yourself and your perceptions of reality. This means, you’ll defer to the abuser for an account of what’s real, so slowly, over time, the abuser becomes the authority over your life.

Gaslighting takes place in relationships, like one-on-one relationships, friendships, in family, and at work. You’ll see gaslighting on the news, and you’ll hear gaslighting coming from politicians, corporate shills, cult leaders, advertising commercials, etc.

One sided writing

Interesting information, but the writing appears to be the author's personal interpretation of choices she made in her own life, then projecting them on to the partners she has chosen. Too many "I" and "me" statements with numerous appeals to emotion. So many chapters are spoken in absolutes, only describing interactions in the most extreme terms, "everything" vs. "nothing" or "always" vs. "never" statements.

Would have been more enjoyable if there was more objective language. It was too much of a first person narrative.

Really helpful audiobook

This book will clear your mind and give you enough examples for it to sink it and for your brain to know when to jolt you awake to bullshit coming your way. It gives you tools to deal with those unpleasant people and just unpleasant people in general. Very useful, I would get my children to read this book before they start secondary school as well. Vital stuff.

Good bundle

Excellant audiobook. If you've ever expressed an opinion but someone made you feel your opinion didn't count...you may have been gaslighted. Worth listening

Must read for everyone!

I couldn't stop listening until I finished the whole book. It was recommended to me, and boy it opened my eyes to the root of problematic patterns and high anxiety in people been gaslighted from narcissistic individuals.
The book explains the different scenarios with the emphasis of self care and love than focusing on the shame and guilt. It also provides tips how to deal with these scenarios, recovery and then healing.
Gas lighting is more common than we realise and it is a good book that raise awareness with simplicity and professionally.
