    One thought on “Narcissistic Lovers: How to Cope, Recover and Move On”

    1. I must say that this book definitely helped me understand that my ex had NPD tendencies. There is a part in the book that has you list traits and things an "N" has done that matches the disorder. Mine was over 3 pages long, HELLO! I also learned that I am a co-dependent type of personality, which is why the break up was so difficult on me and why this relationship was so toxic for someone of my personality type. Definitely helped me in realizing my own faults and I will use what I learned to nev [...]

    2. This was a great book. I recently had a narcissist destroy my life. I realize now that his behavior fits almost every category in this book, despite him being a creepy little loser, and never much caring about his looks, the book explains his behavior perfectly. Made me feel better, and worse. Too bad I didn't read this book before I had a relationship with this deeply troubled man. :(

    3. Depressing but helpful. This book has a clear definition of NPD (narcissistic personality disorder). If you are involved with a narcissist, you should recogize the signs immediately. I just think it's depressing that there's nothing you can do to save the relationship. This is not the books fault, of course, but it's still depressing. If your relationship started out well, but the romance was replaced by insults---read this and move on.

    4. Tells of extreme narcissistic behavior. Definitely taught me a lot and gives me great signals of what to stay away from. Someone's lack of empathy or kindness and lack of attention or affection isn't my fault. Explains why they need to be the center of attention and will compliment themselves 100 times before they say a kind word about you. They reel you in at the beginning and use you to lift them up. And sex is a tool. Sex is a game and no wonder so many sleep around. You are just a means for [...]

    5. This book is a great help if you are at the receiving end of a narcissist's bad behavior. It is one of the best books I have read on NPD because the authors get down to the nitty gritty of how to recognise narcissistic behavior and how to protect yourself from it. It will be more difficult to keep making excuses for the narcissist in your life after reading this book.If you are a narcissist, Alexander Lowen's 'Narcissism: Denial of the True Self' might be a more useful resource. If you are not s [...]

    6. This is a really great book addressing the plight of the partner of a narcissus. Unfortunately, the very nature of a narcissus, what their makeup is, they cannot allow for the possibility that they are less than perfect. Therefore, it is impossible for them to have insight as to their character defects. So, unless you are willing to live with them the way they are, and accept the blame for the shortcomings of the relationship, you should end this relationship.After I read this, it was very clear [...]

    7. I found this book a real 'eye opener'! For me, it made so much sense with what I've endured in family life, as well as in relationships. I could see why I'm drawn to certain individuals and equally, how they are drawn to me and for what benefit! Well worth the read if you feel that you are a poor soul, constantly being trod on in life by others!

    8. This book is in serious need of an editor. It's full of typos and even typographical problems. But most importantly, I HATE the way the author switches randomly from "he" to "she" when talking about the narcissist or the "victim." It's confusing. But I did learn some things. What a terrible affliction -- I think maybe it's the worst thing that can happen to a person in their psychological development. So sad.

    9. Thank GodThis book saved my life and set me free, knowledge is power and that will NEVEREVERhappen to me again !!!!!! Thank you so much, loved it, could not put it down !!!!

    10. Extremely easy to read and gave a lot of real-life examples on how to deal with Narcissists. I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels they have been a victim of a narcissist or if they are still dealing with that narcissist today.

    11. This book is great for those that have loved or been in a relationship with a narcissist/ this book saved my emotional life!!!!
