I have mixed feelings about the book, the writer gives a clear description of her experience some of which resonated with me and helped me to reflect on my own experience, other's, not so much. While I have no wish to re-victimise the writer I did honestly get the sense that some parts of the story were dramatised or embellished, for example an account of a pool accident describes how her 7 year old (if I recall correctly?) daughter counted each gulp of water as she desperately tried to keep herself and her sister afloat, I found that implausible, in another part the writer discusses an entry in her daughter's diary, which I didn't feel needed to be shared publicly. All in all it was light on advice, but really helped me a lot and just 'nice' (though nothing nice about narcissism) to know other people are going through similar experiences and you're not alone.
I wish I read this earlier in my divorce process. I gained so much knowledge and peace of mind knowing that I’m not alone and a lot of my ex’s behaviors are ‘normal’ characteristics of a narcissist.
really comforting knowing I am not the only one that thinks the court system is crazy! wish the author had narrated it as I would feel more emotion, but I found this book very helpful.
