    1. Very informative book. It was very helpful to read a book that was about what the VICTIM of a narcissist can do to help with their own recovery, and self-protection, instead of why the narcissist is disordered. In my own case, the narcissist that inflicted so much damage in my life was already permanently disordered well before I'd ever met him. I had previously read several books about NPD, the traits of the disorder, and why it happens (which were also very helpful to me in their own ways). Ho [...]

    2. The best of the how to deal with a narcissist books that I've read. Great advice on how to deal with my sister, first of which is respond with your head not your emotions. And remove fear from the equation:1. Do Not Be Threatened by the Narcissist's Wrong Perceptions.2. Stop Justifying Your Choices3. Go Beyond Talk and Take Action Toward Change.4. Forget About Generating Good Will.In addition, put aside pride and commit to humility:1. Be Respectful, Even When Respect Is Not Reciprocated.2. Refra [...]

    3. At first this book really depressed me.well, actually the entire time I read this book I felt a little discouraged because I realized the answer to my situation was to either leave or to alter my own approach. It's on me, not on the narcissiste as I learned and agree, you can't change a narcissist. That revelation alone made the book worth reading. Now to work on humility and forgiveness.

    4. I learned so much about Narcissism and how to deal with people in your life. It was the "aha" book for me. I would highly recommend this book if you are dealing with difficult people and can't quite figure out why you can't find resolutions.

    5. Useful techniques for coping and descriptive case studies:This book is an excellent source of information about the self absorbed. The author provides a detailed landscape of the various incarnations of a narcissistic personality type and offers some insightful, seemingly practical and pragmatic approaches to coping with such complex people. I like that the book defines the difference between selfish behavior and self preservation. The author also takes time discuss what is and is not forgivenes [...]

    6. This is quite a powerful, insightful book to help you identify the patterns of thought and behavior in narcissists (note- not all narcissists behave badly in all of the same ways eg. there are aggressive narcissists as well as passive-aggressive narcissists). More than this, though, it helps you learn not only coping mechanisms but positive, healthy attitudes to take on in understanding these people and learning better habits of mind and behaviors when in interaction with narcissistic people, wh [...]

    7. An accessible and useful book ( that can be used as , I won't use the word guidebook, but it can provide gumpion for individuals that have to interact , with narcissists on a daily basis. It's practical and useful without being moralising and pedantic. However, there were times when I felt the extent and potential for narcissistic abuse in relationships(domestic and workplace) was undermined.In other words the book would have been better had it provided more examples on narcissistic emotional ab [...]

    8. Such a great book, not always an easy read as it prompted much inner probing and analyzing how current habits and behavior patterns can be changed to take more responsibility in flawed relationships. The main points which Les Carter seemed to drive home again and again are to stop expecting the narcissist to change and don't let your response to their behavior and attitudes be a reflection of them, but instead of your own character. Be true to yourself regardless of how they respond! The book is [...]

    9. When I read this book, in 2006, I was being kicked in the behind by a lot of people who were merely the center of their own universes and actively disregarded everyone else. I wasn't raised that way and I couldn't understand why these people thought they were so freakin' special and entitled that the world was required to revolve around them. Well, this book was quite the eye-opener. It also managed to offer a lot of perspective. I highly recommend it, whether or not there are narcissists drivin [...]

    10. Libro interessante, pieno di consigli su come trattare con le persone che pensano soltanto a se stesse, i cosiddetti narcisisti. Un po' schematico nella divisione nel mondo tra narcisisti e normali (mentre è mia convinzione che tutti possiamo assumere questo ruolo) e nell'asserzione della impossibilità di cambiare un narciso, ma tutto sommato utile

    11. Excellent read certainly helped me understand why my world is filled with narcissists and how to deal with them especially since they are mostly family!! Recommend it highly to anyone dealing with narcissists!!

    12. I've read several books on this topic, and this is the first one to discuss forgiveness. That chapter and the one on fostering your own inner security are the most important ones in the book to me.

    13. Very informative book. But basically, what I had read on this book were "do whatever you want and don't give a fuck about them".
