Narcissistic personality disorder is surprisingly common, affecting up to six percent of the population. People with this disorder can seem charming and self-confident, but their excessive need for admiration from others masks deeper insecurity and self-loathing that drives them to manipulate and abuse the people who care about them.

The following chapters will discuss the symptoms of narcissistic abuse, the strategies that narcissistic abusers use to manipulate their victims, the traumatic childhood experiences that cause this disorder, and the distorted thinking patterns typical of the narcissist.

This book will also teach you about codependency, as well as why narcissists so often target codependent people. In addition, this book will teach you effective tips and strategies for dealing with narcissists, how to rebuild your self-esteem after narcissistic abuse, how to get out of an abusive relationship, how to deal with narcissistic victim syndrome and its long-term effects, how to heal the wounds from an abusive relationship, and how to avoid toxic relationships in the future.

Just like the good-looking but heartless young man in the Greek myth, the narcissist is unbelievably charming but basically empty - in love with his own reflection. Like the nymph in the story, anyone unfortunate enough to love such a person risks fading away into a mere echo. 

Unlike Narcissus, real narcissists don’t just reject their victims. All too often, the narcissist will go out of his way to make you emotionally dependent on him before systematically destroying your sense of self-esteem to ensure that you never abandon him. The narcissist’s abusive behavior can eventually leave you to be confused and filled with doubt to consider leaving the relationship. In effect, the narcissist reduces you to an echo of his own thoughts and needs - all the while remaining focused on his own image.

Narcissistic abuse is profoundly damaging, with negative effects that can last for years. The children of narcissistic parents sometimes repeat the destructive pattern, either as victims or as abusers. Narcissists almost always blame others for their own actions, so it’s uncommon for a narcissist to seek professional help.

Not all abusers are narcissistic, but abusive behaviors have certain characteristics in common, regardless of the abuser’s motivation. The key to protecting yourself from narcissistic abuse is to recognize what constitutes abusive behavior.

Not Gender Neutral, Infrequently Geared Toward Men

I was hoping I would find a book regarding narcissism written in a gender neutral tone. Frequently the words “his narcissism” “he will be quick to..” “he will project..” “he wants you to..” and less frequently “she” or even “they” are used. I am saddened by this. I was hoping to learn more from my experience but it became a chore to mentally change “his” to “hers.”

Chapters ughh

It was almost impossible to find stuff later because there is so much repetition. The chapter titles are not much help either. The information is fantastic but just hard to find stuff when you need it later.
