insightful

Having recently realized I have been in a harmful friendship with someone who displays alot of narcissistic characteristics, I found this book insightful in how to navigate forward...in or out of the relationship. At times I did find myself wishing for a change in narrator, but perhaps it was because I listened to the entire book in one sitting.

Transformed my life

Throughout my whole childhood I was forced to deal with a narcissistic father and it was extremely challenging. Looking back on it if I had this audiobook I would have at least been able to understand why my father was the way he was and it would have made dealing with him much easier. That being said I am grateful I stumbled upon this book as I can go back and attempt to heal some of the trauma that I dealt with as a young child.

Super informative and enlightening!

This was such an interesting book, especially the chapter on relationships with narcissists. The dynamics are explained so well, and you may find similar relationships in your life that you may not have realized are toxic. This is a well-rounded book and discusses the causes of narcissism and the types of people who find themselves in a relationship with a narcissist. Great narration!
