The Book

Have you ever felt that you can never do anything right? When things go wrong, is it always your fault? Do you ever find yourself being met with a wall of silence and you have no idea why? If so, you need answers. You could be the target of a toxic person or a narcissist. Unless one has been subjected to abuse from these individuals, it is difficult to understand or comprehend the trauma and damage these people cause. There are no bruises or visible scars, but the pain goes much deeper than the eye can see or most hearts can fathom. Narcissistic and emotional abuse is extremely destructive and long lasting, and sadly, may leave scars that last a lifetime. Many targets of abuse will blame themselves believing that they are at fault. Learning about narcissism and emotional abuse will show you that you are not responsible for another person’s despicable behaviour. The only thing that you can take responsibility for is the way you react to their behaviour. This book will explain the behaviour of the narcissistic spouse or partner, narcissists within the family or the workplace, friendship with a narcissistic personality and recovery from narcissistic abuse. This knowledge should help your understanding of this disorder and assist in the recovery process.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  This was one of the best books I’ve ever read on narcissism. I was married to one for 30 years and have read at least 20 books on the subject. This is such a good read as it is very concise and yet speaks right to the heart of one who has been through it, and also does an excellent job explaining the dynamics of being a spouse and child of a narcissist. It also brings immense comfort as Anne helps the reader understand that it is NOT you that is causing the dysfunction. She does a wonderful job of explaining what makes a narcissist “tick”. My advice for anyone who is unsure if this is happening in your relationship is to read this book. If this is what is happening to you, you will have that “aha” moment that feels as if the clouds have at last been lifted and everything now makes sense. God bless you, Anne! You have done a wonderful service in writing this book.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  After coming out of a relationship with a narcissist after 5 years this book helped me realise that the abuse I had suffered was not just in my head but a reality. Having read this book it was like looking in from the outside at what my life was like.
Its also made me realise that I needed therapy to talk things through after the advise from reading this book.
I would love to let all my friends read it so they can truly understand how a narcissist works from the love bombing stage through to the end where there is never closure.
It’s a great read and an insight to how easily we can all fall for a narcissist

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  “Why did the person who said, “they loved me more than life itself”, suck the life out of me? This book is an eye opening, resourceful tool that will help you recognise & remove the toxic (narcissist) people in your relationship.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  “I knew nothing about this subject before reading this brilliantly written book. It explains everything in great detail but easy to understand even for me. Very interesting and I would highly recommend.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  A Very Helpful Book

Really helpful book indeed
Gives lots of good advice and coping strategies when you are going through a tough situation .

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  “Excellent book, I also recommend the Covert Narcissist by Audrey Davies. This topic desperately needs a greater exposure, discussion and awareness so thank you to the author. Non physical domestic abuse – the emotional and psychological kind, can destroy and break the spirit and soul. These books helped to raise awareness in this rarely discussed area of abuse.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  Could have been describing my marriage. Excellent book makes a lot of sense and easy to understand.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  “Must Read
I would recommend this book to anyone who has ever had a friend, relative, spouse, neighbor, etc.. who has ever caused them to doubt there own thoughts, feelings or convictions..yes, even reality. Narcs are mainly small empty people who are jealous of who you are as a person and any talents you may possess. Don’t be fooled. There is no nice ending in toxic relationships. Narcs wish to destroy what they can never have. They are extremely selfish and self-centered. It just gets worse over time. When you realize how negatively you’ve been affected, you’ll also see a need to take positive action. This book will explain the kind of people narcissists really are and help you sort things out so you can get a clear picture of where you are and where you need to go. “Narcissistic and Emotional Abuse: Shattering The Illusion” is a serious game-changer.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  “Must Read for Someone Who the Target of a Narcissist!
I wish I’d had this book years ago! Unfortunately, two narcissists were in my immediate family and people I loved unconditionally. Anne described their behaviors to a “T”! The book is clearly written with striking accounts of this destructive disorder. To begin healing, I’m implementing the ,” No Contact ” phase for self preservation. No one deserves the abuse these people purposely deliver. Run away as fast as you can! This book will fuel your will to do so. Thank you, Anne. This book has been a Godsend to me.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  “Great resource for recovering victims of Narcissistic Abuse
I highly recommend Anne’s book. I have read nonstop on the topic of NPD over the past two years since my divorce began and during which time NPD was introduced to me. This book is incredibly well researched, organized, and presented.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  “This book is a great read and the perfect eye opener for anyone who has found themselves caught up in a narcissistic relationship. I was able to relate to just about every page in this book. If you are the victim of domestic violence of the hands of a narcissist you need to read this book. I encourage 100% you will not be disappointed. To those who are suffering, there is hope.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  “Life changing. This book is changing my life. I now understand why he behaves the way he does, why I felt so confused and hurt. I know now that a heartfelt apology will never happen. And I know what I need to do to stay strong, and stay away from toxic & abusive people. I have ordered hard copies!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  “Great Book. One of the best books I’ve read on the subject.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  “I highly recommend this book. It is very informative and was a real eye opener. As a matter of fact, I am going to purchase two more books to give to some family members in hopes that it will help them heal.
