WOW!!!Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! I have educated myself extensively on NPD, and THIS is the book I could not put down! If you are 'under the spell' of living with one with NPD, the first step is to become aware of WHAT it is you are dealing with, and then acknowledge that this disorder is so perplexing that perhaps you DO need help to cope with the NPD individual in your life. Please...Go ahead and do yourself a 'life-altering favor'...do not hesitate to purchase this book! It will give you a complete array of tools that you need to reclaim your life, your values, your power, and your sanity. And if you have chosen to stay in this relationship, this "life experience" does not have to be a "life sentence" with 'no parole'. You CAN reclaim your life! The information in this book is amazingly helpful, incredibly detailed, and the author has such an abundance of insight into the NPD personality. For the first time in many, many years (actually decades), I now feel alive, in control, and HAPPY again. I have actually reclaimed my life, my values, and my soul! This book is like a 'breath of fresh air' for those of us who have been suffocated and stifled for so long.
We DO have options, and this author takes you, by the hand (and with no holds barred) to show you exactly HOW you can begin the process to light up your future and enjoy life once again. The powerful arsenal of the narcissist has remained unchallenged for far too long; now finally a viable arsenal is available for the spouse, partner, adult child, employee, or co-worker of one with NPD, to enable you to reclaim your power! The results of putting even 'some' of the author's ideas into practice - even after only three short days for me - have been both amazing and enlightening! I cannot wait to implement the full array of her very articulate healing advice and suggestions. She just "knows"... But perhaps Rokelle Lerner will never know how grateful I am to her for her insight and her work. I truly cannot thank the author enough for writing this book.
If you plan to purchase one 'life changing' book on addressing your challenge of 'how' to deal with 'daily challenges' of living or associating with one who has NPD, this is definitely the book for you. Your life CAN change in the midst of living with one with NPD...it really can. You can heal!
