While there were some useful points in this book, I felt that it presented the behaviour of nacissists in a blatant way. If narcissists were that obvious we would all spot them a mile off. For example - its says N's say things that reflect a lack of empathy like 'too bad' 'what an idiot' 'whatever' and 'I don't care'. In my experience N's do not say these things, anyone saying these things would instantly be identified as an unpleasant person to be avoided. In reality I think N's come across as good people to the unknowing, and I don't think this point was fully emphasized in the book. As such I think this book is a helpful adjunct to other books on the subject, but not as useful as a main/sole source of information.

Dreadful pointless book. Do not waste your money. The author is a spurious unsubstantiated individual who calls herself Light / Michelle Ede / Drew Keys . She says her email address is light at lightshouse dot org in the back of the book.
There is no information whatsoever to reveal the credentials of the author. All this book says is that Light / Michelle Ede / Drew Keys helped put together the website lightshouse dot org. A quick search shows that the website lightshouse dot org no longer exists. There is no explanation as to why it has shut down.

There appears to be a great deal of controversy online about the webpage that Light / Michelle Ede / Drew Keys was involved with called narcissistic mothers dot org which is still up and running. Light / Michelle Ede / Drew Keys collaborated with narcissist child dot org before cobbling together this meagre 128 page effort.

The other author who put together narcissist child dot org is Danu Morrigan.. Real name Tracey Culleton. who has written three titles on narcissistic mothers. So Danu Morrigan / Tracey Culleton and Light / Michelle Ede / Drew Keys appear to have collaborated on the website narcissist child dot org. narcissist child dot org is not a free site.. Asking for membership fees and selling dreadful, badly designed T-shirts, mugs, posters and necklaces.. Hmm. Not something I associate with legitimate authors. narcissist child dot org sells a subscription called "the healing club" at a rate of $17 a month to gain access to a handful of videos which could have been posted on YouTube but were not. In other words everything about narcissist child dot org looks bogus. it doesn't look like something I would expect from an experienced and informed author. It looks like a lame attempt to sell substandard products. I'm just glad that I didn't buy any of her books. there are lots and lots of really great YouTubes available on this subject which are free so I see no point in gaining membership to narcissist child dot org.

There are a lot of people who have complaints about the way narcissist child dot org was managed saying they were bullied, blocked and kicked out of the group for one reason or another. In other words there's all sorts of dramas there. it's very disappointing that a lot of these apparently well known books on the subject of narcissism are written by such dreadful authors. Many of them are short, badly written, contain little or no information that can't be found online. Also the authors have no professional credentials. And they have the nerve to charge eight or 9 pounds for these dreadful books.

So to summarise, I was not impressed by this book at all. Very simple basic looking questions and answer format that uses huge writing and lots of white spaces. In other words it looks like it was thrown together in a very short amount of time. I don't like the title either.. it smacks of melodrama.
It's very short at 128 pages considering they charge nearly 9 pounds for the book. I felt ripped off by it. It didn't have a professional look at all.
It looks to me as though they just copied and pasted staff of the Internet. It hasn't been written in a nuanced or subtle way. It's blatant obvious points repeated.
This isn’t the first time I've had complaints about the number of badly written books on the market about narcissists. there seems to be a rash of them cropping up. Also not sure why they attract so many glowing reviews. I have my doubts about the reviews. also it's notable that this author is only produced one book so far. In other words it was just a one-off thing. Badly researched at that.

Having been ripped off more than once for badly written books on this subject, one of the few books that that seem to be much better researched and well written is. The Object of My Affection is in My Reflection: Narcissists and Their Relationships author with proper credentials. And you can tell by the way it is written..full of detail and referencing.

I would recommend that people studiously avoid this book, and presumably the ones by her online collaborator based on the dodgy 17 dolla membership and cheesy mugs, t shirts etc… ugh. if you're going to spend the money there are MUCH better books on this subject.

Book was delivered at 11.58 am. I made a coffee and sat down to an informative read only to be finished the whole book by the time my coffee had even turned lukewarm. For £8.58 I expected a bit more than words printed like a book i read when i was 10 yrs old. I'm no more informed than I was before I got to the bottom of my coffee cup at 12.27 pm.

I applaud anyone trying to help expose narcissists but this title is misleading , its more like the same answer repeated over and over again in a condescending manner to the effect of you can't change a narcissist and if you have been in a relationship with one or had one as a parent then you need therapy as you must have problems. It covers the very basics of people with Narcissistic personality disorder which is good but I can't see this book helping much if you are having a nightmare with someone with N.P.D. Strong people can cope with and show up a Narcissist just fine and the best thing to remember is they are insecure and weak which is why they act like they do.

Having stuggled with a very broken down relationship for over 50 years, and an instinctive feeling of "this isn't right/normal", this book has been a revelation into the behaviours of one of the most destructive personality types one is ever likely to encounter. The damage that a narcissist causes can take a lifetime to get over if at all. The wounds which are left may heal over, but unless the root causes are understood they never really go away.
This book helps to cope with the scars that are left behind and accept them as your experience, knowing you will never again allow such injury to be inflicted upon you, now you have the knowledge to see where it's all leading very early in their game.

This said everything in plain English about narcissistic behaviour. I would recommend it to anyone who has a relative presenting this behaviour.
