I’m not taking this for granted.

A well-researched and updated material here, I’m looking forward to the future works of Jonathan Costas. He writes incredibly that any reader will be able to relate well with his works.

Best book I've read on topic

narration is great! this book has been the best I've heard on how to actually recover. I'm over and done with reading books on what is toxic, if your questioning your marriage or relationship with someone... something is wrong. there isn't enough information on how to get out, BUT this book helps a ton.

Gained knowledge on this.

I am pleased how the author of the book speaks with consideration and how the narrator reads with clarity. This isn’t an easy book to listen to because of the sensitivity of the issue. But for all it’s worth, I tried.

Very clear

This book is very helpful for people who are still in the “fog” of emotional and psychological abuse. Simple and clear. For survivors. Not for therapists.

review

I truly enjoy listening to this book. I finally understood that what I was going through is not in my head and that I'm not crazy. I also would like to add that the narrator was great. I felt that he was talkin to me in a kind loving and supporting way. Thank you so much for this book

Very insightful

This book was great to give me more insight into the tactics used by narcissists, how they see things, and how they help bring the abuse and crazy making to a deeper understanding. Great listening to anyone who recovers from this kind of abuse, and to anyone in general.

Highly recommend!

That book saved my health. I felt like I couldn't really communicate to others for so long just how bad and terrible the guy who left me completely several times was, and how worse it was than your failed relationship averages. This book opened my eyes to a feeling I know was already deep within me (my intuition to tell me something was very wrong with my relationship's "big picture"

Well explained

It is the go to book on living in a psychopathic relationship. The book explained all that I went through and gave me the answers that I needed to start trying to put my life together. It is a book MUST HAVE on the topic!!! If you think you may be in a relationship with a psychopath, don't waste a minute getting this book, because if you're curious ... you 're more than likely!

Useful guidance

Some of that book's deep spiritual insights left me in tears. I was taken by the beauty of the author's words and their helpfulness. Through this book, I felt a connection to him that was beautiful and refreshing after listening to so much that seemed more like clinical science. This is what you need as you hunger for knowledge and techniques to get on with your afterlife.

Helpful audible

My daughter is struggling to avoid one of these relationships and she was recommended by her therapist to listen to this book. It was really helpful to understand exactly where she was, and how to help with the future.

Highly recommend!

I consider this book extremely insightful and helpful. Through excellent fashion, he clarifies the psychopathic forms and their behaviors, giving the reader a way to identify, eliminate oneself and heal from the damage caused by those individuals. Recommend them highly!

Very helpful!

This book really helped me. I've been dealing with my fair share of horrible relationships and reading this book at a recommendation from my therapist. Although not all of this applied in my mind to the few individuals, it definitely helped get through it.

Which best describes my encounter with my psychopathic, charismatic husband. Sadly we are both employed at the same place and the entity has done a great deal of harm to my image by projecting their crimes and playing victim flawlessly. Listening to this book and hearing the voice of understanding helps. Thank you . Thank you.

Perfect guide

I'm so happy to have come across this book. It's written in the perfect way for someone who is going through the painful emotional abuse healing process. Overall it seemed like the speaker was sitting beside me, holding my hand while he was listening to me. I 'd also suggest it to those who haven't witnessed violence, because everyone should be aware of the damage done by the evil mentioned here.

Wonderful audible

This is a very veritable book. What's sad is that a psychopath who brought them to this book has probably already hurt the majority of people listening to this. Perhaps this book would give you insight into how a narcissist (i.e. love bombing is the main clue) can be spotted and how to defend yourself. The biggest trick to getting to know someone is to go slow.

Saved my life!

Literally, the book saved my life. A counsellor gave me this book and it was like listening to my own experiences word for word. I might see the facts, and get out of a really dangerous relationship. I will be grateful to this author forever and to his publisher for the confidence that this book has given me to move on. Thanks!!!

Strong audible. It will help you to feel optimistic once again, realizing that your case is not special and that after an abusive relationship there is healing, development and a better understanding of yourself. I 'm sure I'll be listening it again, if not more than several times.

Awesome!

For one night I listened to it, I just couldn't put it down. After my relationship ended, I have listened a variety of books on emotional manipulation, sociopaths and narcissists and this one was by far the most informative and beneficial.
