I am not very knowledgeable about narcissism and empaths. Until recently I hadn’t thought of empaths as being “real.” I had mostly came across the term in paranormal and fantasy books. It was actually someone who I now suspect to be a narcissist who told me to read up on empaths. My introduction to narcissist came with the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard case. Though, in hindsight, I suspect I have been in relationships with a narcissist before. This book actually gave me nice introduction to both and ...more

I received an ARC copy of this book for review, and I found myself frequently distracted by typos and errors in the text, which made for a frustrating read. Hopefully these errors have been corrected prior to publishing.

Having dated a few narcissists, I was immediately drawn to this book. I am an empath, and I have learned from Dyer's book that people like me frequently become the victims of narcissists. My innate drive to nurture and to care for others makes me a prime target for narcissists,

Pros: This book will introduce you to the definition of a narcissist. It is very informative and scientific at first and seems to not be applicable in the beginning. Then, the second and following chapters will begin to spark significant interest. For instance, the trauma that the victims endure is unbelievable. I watched a documentary about a narcissistic artist that displayed all of the terrible behaviors described. I found myself wondering why the victims stayed and allowed themselves to be a ...more

I am not quite sure why, but there seems to have been a spate of books about narcissism lately, and specifically, books that talk about the relationship pattern that a narcissist usually happens to fall into with an empath. I swear it wasn't all that long ago that the term “empath” was used mostly in fantasy games and magical speculative fiction. Of course, I have seen it referred to in metaphysical books, but I haven't seen it in psychology works. But I digress. Compared

Good Introduction to the topic

I'm not as knowledgeable on the topic of Narcissistic Personality Disorder as I would like to be, Judy Dyer's book was a pretty good place to start my learning explorations. I appreciated her introduction to some of the terminology used by the therapeutic community, and her very positive and reassuring approach. I was a bit confused by her alternate characterizations of the narcissist as a pitiable victim of severe personal issues, and and a deliberately heartless

The book was well written and better thought out than many on this topic. My only issue was the insistence by the author that a narcissist must also be insecure. This is an outdated idea that this fact is always true. As someone with long term and very direct and personal experience with more than one narcissist, I know this is not always true. Additionally, there is a great deal of research that now shows not all narcissists are also insecure. The repeating of this information as if it was ...more

Enlightening!
by Dmarie

I have been researching this issue on the internet but haven't found any information that was this clear and to the point. It helped me understand what I have been dealing with in a personal situation. I would suggest this book to anyone who suspects that a relationship, of any kind, might be toxic to them. Although this book is not a source of diagnostic information (the author makes this clear) it can certainly help one understand things.

Good explanation of how to identify a Narcissist and what to do if you run into one in order to make your life better.
by Anonymous

I found the book very informative and helpful, although it didn't address the issue of when it is a grandchild and would like to have seen more details for that situation. However, if looking at it from a child/parent association then it was more helpful. Truly if seems that either run away from them and stay away or set clear cut lines not to be crossed and stick

I have to say I found Judy Dyer’s book a very comprehensive guide for anyone seeking to understand the narcissist and an empath’s relationship more. I was looking for this sort of summary for quite a long time. It kind of puts all the scattered information that I found on the internet together. Very valuable source of knowledge. Highly recommended!!

Reading this book has been an eye-opener for me. I thought I was at fault for being treated the way I was being treated by my partner. But I discovered I'm in relationship with a narcissist, thanks to Judy. Judy has laid it all out so perfectly that I and many like me can finally know what is required to be done to make our lives better.
