If you want to understand how to identify and handle narcissists, then keep reading....

To understand a narcissist and indeed the disorder known as Narcissistic Personality Disorder, we need to further investigate the traits, characteristics, and the effects of narcissism - both on the narcissist and on us.

In this guide, you will discover the roots of narcissism, what makes a narcissist a narcissist, what happened to them that made them that way, and what experiences have shaped them and molded them into self-centered, arrogant, over-confident, and egotistical individuals.

Through interviews with narcissists we hear their own unique and often traumatic stories and their experiences, whilst - for us who have been affected by a narcissist - can better understand the disorder and to find ways in which we can utilize in order for us to deal with the narcissist in our lives

What you will find in this book:

  • The roots to narcissism and how a narcissist became a narcissist. Coupled with this comes interviews with narcissists, people who have suffered because of narcissistic abuse, and psychologists who give insight on how it is being a narcissist; lessons on how to heal from the hurt and self-doubt, and why narcissism is such a volatile disorder. 
  • The different types of narcissism - expanded on to explain each type simply.
  • The effects of narcissistic behavior in relationships and how to build or rebuild healthy new ones.
  • How to heal from narcissistic abuse - through self-awareness, self-love, setting boundaries, and by knowing it is okay to say "no". 

This guide is not just for those who have been affected by a narcissist, but for the narcissist as well. This is to help show that people who are suffering because of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) spectrum are not alone. But why is this important? It is important because we all need to heal, and this guide gives the practical tools in which this can be achieved.

It, as a whole, can be the way forward on your journey to healing from a narcissistic relationship. Furthermore, this book should be utilized by anyone who also just wants to know more about NPD and the damaging effects it can have on people.

I really benefited to listen to this audiobook

In this audiobook, you will also come across some useful tips on how to hurt them, without hurting yourself in the process. The strategies in this audiobook are not aimed at physically abusing or compromising them. Instead, the aim is to give them the taste of the bitter, too.

If you know or live with a narcissist, you need to listen to this. It helps you understand how they operate and control people. The more you know the better you can protect yourself and recognize when they are full of crap! Which is always!

Very informative and educational audio-book!!!

I found this audio-book helpful in providing me with knowledge of how the Narcissist feels and why I'm hurt because I want him to feel the same way I believe others do. This also provides an understanding of other situations that are more public and not as personal. I highly recommend this audio-book.

I thought it was a great audio-book!!!,

This audio-book gave me a slightly better understanding of certainly the insane pain of seeing others. I'm wide careful, at last. I've already learned much of this knowledge because I'm curious about it, so if it's the first audio-book you 're listening to, it's going to be really beneficial. Savvy listening is an exceptionally obvious one. Clear and concise approaches to tackling.

Extremely Helpful this audio-Book!!!

This is a splendid audio-book. I inclined from this audio-book to such huge numbers of successful things. A companion of mine proposed it strongly and I regarded it as very encouraging. I don't think it's as much about disclosing that you want to leave a relationship as it helps you handle a narcissistic individual. His audio-book made me feel invited and solid and I feel like I've finally got the high.

Very quick helpful listen!!!

It's not easy to spot all narcissists, and this audio-book nails it-passive-aggressive. Not only was it informative and validating but it had powerful, life-changing suggestions such as: spotting them in the future, managing interactions with them, listening further, getting support, finding yourself a better future. I strongly recommend this audio-book!
