This book is really amazing. It helped me understand why my mother was the way that she was. Doing this has not allowed me to start taking steps to help myself and to live life without her influence over me in full force.
I could identify with everything! Finally, a name for my mother's behavior towards me- narcissism. She was the one with issues and I was her victim. And she had been the victim of her mother's narcissism. But I finally feel vindicated and so much about my own childhood was explained to me in this book. The author is a therapist and had her own narcissistic mother so she really gets it and explains it clearly. She also reads her own book. Very enlightening reading!
Fascinating, although a bit broad and generic. Definitely worth a listen though
A lot of important information!
