This book will keep you in the abuse cycle longer and give the perpetrator new avenues to cause harm!Dangerous, victim-blaming, perpetrator-excusing. Do NOT listen to the things she tells you to do, this book will help you to become MORE invested and MORE entrapped in this abusive relationship, it will make it so much harder to leave than it is right now.
People who are in a relationship ALREADY KNOW that the abuser is damaged and in pain and have ALREADY tried everything in their power to support, love, be kind, compassionate, giving, choose their words carefully, choose their actions carefully, see EVERYTHING from the narcissist's point of view. Writing a book instructing people who are being abused by a narcissist to try harder/try a slightly different way or maybe just the same way of doing all those things is vile! She also counts only physical abuse as a reason to leave and gives no strategies for leaving.

The way she tells you to talk to a narcissist it is as though she has NEVER met one in her life, it is as though she thinks they will just sit there and listen to everything you say, you know, like a NORMAL person!
Maybe it's because she's only dealt with Narcissists when they have been forced by court to have therapy so they HAVE to appear to listen to her that she is so utterly deluded about how they behave towards their loved ones.

She wants you to feel sorry for narcissists, she wants you to try and re-mother them, she wants you to try again, bend yourself a little harder this time and, most dangerously I think, she wants you to believe that you have the power to CHANGE this disordered person. YOU CANNOT CHANGE A NARCISSIST! NOT EVER!
