READER: I was in a relationship with a somatic narcissist for several years before being discarded

Sam Vaknin's book literally saved my sanity! I was in a relationship with a somatic narcissist for several years before being discarded. Like many victims of abuse, I felt that in large part, the failure of the relationship was my fault. All that changed the day that my sister-in-law put a copy of Sam's book in my hands! I had done a little on-line research prior to that, but found it very lacking in detail and unable to fully answer my questions.

Sam Vaknin is the world-reknowned authority on this disorder and with laser-sharp accuracy answers every question about narcissim and provides a sobering, realitistic assessment of these abusive relationships. The book is expertly organized in a question/answer format that easily allows the reader to seek answers to specific questions without losing any continuity in understanding. Every possible circumstance is covered from romantic relationships, friendships, work relationships and to what to expect in court with a narcissist.

The prevalence of this disorder is remarkable. If I had read Sam's book before meeting my narcissist, I would have realized that I needed to avoid the relationship and would have been spared enormous pain. I didn't have the knowledge I needed. If you are in an abusive relationship, you owe it to yourself to read this book!! Let Sam provide you with the compassion and knowledge you need, so that you can cope. His book will empower you to end the cycle of abuse and free you from the guilt that victims so often take upon themselves.

Even if you are in a healthy relationship, the chances are excellent that someone you love or care about is either involved with a narcissist or will be in the future. Be a blessing to someone! For less than the cost of a good meal, you or a loved one can be liberated from abuse and allow the healing to begin.
