“This book is a must-read for anyone who has suffered in a relationship with a narcissist. In my 30 years as a clinical social worker, I have talked with countless people, usually women, who have struggled to understand the behavior of a narcissist. They have asked the questions “what’s wrong with me?” and “what happened to the man I fell in love with?” Dr. Love’s book helps the reader identify and understand both her own behavior and that of her narcissistic partner through a series of thought-provoking exercises and stories. Most who read this book will find themselves nodding their heads in understanding and will experience that “light-bulb” moment when it becomes clear. Dr. Love walks with the reader on a journey of self-discovery, identifying the strengths that make it possible to move on from and never return to relationships with a narcissist. It’s helpful to have a journey as you read and Dr. Love does frequent “check ins” with the use of “Your Looking Glass”. The section entitled “Self Care: Becoming Your Own Fairy Godmother” was of particular interest to me. As a Reiki Master I understand the mind/body/spirit connection and Dr. Love beautifully ties this all together.”

“Thank you, Dr. Love, for this thoughtful and insightful work, and for sharing the stories of the many clients you have helped. This book is life-changing!!”

– Carol A. Stovold, LCSW and Reiki Master

“As an expert in domestic violence, I know that the connection between narcissists and both emotional abuse and physical violence is powerful. I use Dr. Love’s book in my lectures to health care and criminal justice professionals, the public, mediators, and divorce lawyers to show how to help friends, family, clients, or patients who are in relationships with narcissists. I’ve witnessed numerous audience members experience that “a-ha” moment when they recognize the signs of narcissism in a relationship in their own lives and realize how this knowledge and awareness can also serve them at work.

Dr. Love’s book is easy-to-read and packed with time-tested, practical advice to help you recognize the signs of a narcissistic relationship, understand how you got into it, and, most importantly, how to get out and break the cycle. Her guidance can be applied not only to romantic relationships but also to those at work, with a parent, or even a friend…

…Men and women may find themselves in such a relationship (whether it be heterosexual or same-sex) and spend years breaking free—only to land in another. And another. Narcissists can be the “most attractive” people—charismatic, appealing, and all too ready to manipulate and abuse for their own self-gain. I highly recommend this book to anyone struggling in a relationship with a narcissist.”
