Publisher's Summary

I suffered at the hands of a malignant narcissist for seven years. I was emotionally tortured by his nasty, venomous words, his hateful behavior towards me and his sadistic enjoyment of anything that upset me. For years I was under his control, beaten down to the point where I had no perception of reality. I was a shell of a human.   

I wrote this book for anyone else who is suffering at the hands of a malignant narcissist. I want to offer not only healing words but also guide you through understanding the disorder in order to better help you deal with it. The book includes:  

  • Explaining what malignant narcissism is  
  • Translating the language of a malignant narcissist  
  • Discussing if a narcissist can ever change  
  • The dangers of a malignant narcissist  
  • The traits in you that the narcissist saw as "prey"  
  • Trauma bonding  

Through this book, there are also stories from other survivors scattered between chapters. Hearing the tales of others can give you inspiration and courage when you need it most. 

To beat the narcissist, you need to know the narcissist - and that's where this book comes in. Narcissistic Ex: Narcissistic abuse is a form of abuse that ensures victims are left emotionally drained, mentally exhausted, and devoid of any self-worth or self-esteem. I was a victim of a malignant narcissist for seven years of my life, and I know just how crushing it is to live such an abusive and suppressed life.   

The helplessness and detachment from reality that come with narcissistic abuse are enough to keep you in the tight grip of the abuser for as long as they choose.  

However, I eventually found the courage to leave my abuser, but it didn't end there. As you may know, ending a relationship with a narcissist isn't that easy - even if it was the narc who did the breaking up. They don't just "let you go" - they try to make sure you'll go through hell before you get one over on them.

spot on

I really wish I would have availed myself of this type of information at the time things were so extremely confusing for me.... devaluation phase. which in a 30 year relationship can span a substantial period of time. the information in this book is provided in a very thoughtful and caring manner. understanding what happened is essential to forgiving yourself and healing. I still have tremendous guilt for bringing my kids into this and am a bit angry that I allowed this to occur for so long. but it is true that we question if we can possibly make it through and this book did also give me hope for some type of peace and even possibly Joy at some future point in time. they're actually maybe a life worth living yet.
