  • Protect your sanity
  • Use humor to get out of the blame game
  • Conquer self-doubt
  • Stop invalidating yourself
  • Confront emotional bullies
  • See the bigger picture
  • Reclaim the captain's seat of your soul

I decided to read this book after being in a relationship with a borderliner. I recognized all the manipulative strategies and techniques right away. Of course most people won't be in a extreme situation like that but there are allot of people in the world that try to get their way in devious strategies. Sooner or later you'll come across people who manipulate or maybe you do it yourself without realizing it. This book gives good insights on how to stop invalidating others or how to stop others from constantly invalidating you. Easy to understand and very practical.

Having studied pychology I love the non-clinical and down to earth delivery in everyday langauge. I would recommend to anyone struggling to understand the motivation of difficult people and how to respond.

This book is easy to read and easy to digest. It clearly describes particular characteristics and the way those who possess them may treat others. It has helped to me understand why past relationships have gone wrong, how present relationships can be better managed and most importantly has shown me how to prevent myself from becoming like those who have treated me badly in the past.
The infromation I have gleaned from this book gives me another tool in my armoury

This book is interesting. It spends a long time describing nasty people and their behaviour. It makes too many excuses for them. When it gets to the part of how to deal with them it is good because it gives you a long list of things to think of and do. Easy to find something on the list you can do. It is good when you realise that just by e.g. being professional you have already dealt with them effectively.

This book makes sense and is written in clear and understandable style. It certainly helps to understand what we are up against in terms of other people's behaviour as well as our own.

It is really good to re read when things get tough to remind yourself about what to do.

The book is actually not providing as much information as I'd wish. I found it quite easy to read and to digest altough In my opinion it does not go into much detail about the diversity of nasty characters.

Fantastic book. Short, simple and to the point. I've lent this book to many friends, and spoke about it to others. It opened my eyes to my naivety and helped me through a difficult time where I was being bullied in subtle way. It was chipping away at my confidence over time, but I couldn't name or identify what was going on right underneath my nose. Love this book.

Good info on strategies such as to not introvert, not take things personally, to find compassion for self and other, and some good techniques. Could have used more examples to flesh out concepts eg the bits on if someone has internalised the invalidator, then what...? If wanted to keep things brief, maybe an appendix could have helped. Otherwise contained bits that were stated in a novel way eg how the invalidation process drives some personalities to unhealthy introversion, how letting go of narcissism can be healthy.
