    My husband bought this book, I would personally never have chosen this actual text because it is self-published on a popular therapy topic without footnotes or references. For this evidence-based therapy trained psychotherapist this is a “no-no.” As a clinician this book is redundant and frustrating, however I find a ton of use for this book for kids (reading level 6th grade and up) who are currently healing from a relationship with a narcissist mother.

Whether the kids are currently dealing with the NPD mom, she was recently diagnosed or they are no longer in contact, this book is an easy read and it’s redundancies are helpful to help kids with loyalty binds make sense of the abuse they have endured. So clinician rating? ** Kid rating? ****

    This book was mind blowing! It made so much of my childhood makes sense. I totally recommend it for any children who were abused or neglected by their parents. It may just be the key to help you understand what really happened and how it has really affected you. I ended up buying five or six copies for friends and family members and could not be more thrilled with their responses too.

She was a very wounded and beautiful soul. I was taught in class that "Hurting people hurt people" that statement really stuck with me. About 4 years or so before losing my mom completely to death. Our family had really lost her to both drugs and alochol abuse. She was 57 when she passed. For anyone else who's mother was a Narcissist. Please know the guilt you maybe feeling inside from Not doing what they want you too. Is called false guilt. You are allowed to be your own person ok. It's ok to love you!

    Very interesting. Addressed a lot of issues that are similar to adult children of alcoholics and other childhood traumas. Learned a few technical terms and revalidated what many years of therapy teaches already. It’s an excellent introduction to understanding to what you experienced and why, however, be cautious, if you are just starting out on the journey, it should be paired with an excellent, experienced therapist as you work through your discoveries.

    If you want a brief introduction into narcissistic mothers with some tips on how to recover from their negative effects then this book is for you. When I say brief I really mean it. Is that a bad thing? No, definitely not. It is far from an in-depth account on the role narcissistic mothers have in the trauma of children and their arrested development. The tips given will play a role in your recovery but I still believe that one should have a solid understanding on how trauma affects the body and If you want a brief introduction into narcissistic mothers with some tips on how to recover from their negative effects then this book is for you. When I say brief I really mean it. Is that a bad thing? No, definitely not. It is far from an in-depth account on the role narcissistic mothers have in the trauma of children and their arrested development. The tips given will play a role in your recovery but I still believe that one should have a solid understanding on how trauma affects the body and brain particularly in children. The Body Keeps The Score by Bessel van der Kolk would be a good book for this. Recovery from CPTSD is a little more than just journaling and positive thinking (although good techniques in recovery) which seems to be a central theme of the tips provided in this book. In saying this, Caroline really does pack the pages with just enough information to begin your recovery from the negative effects of narcissistic mothers. And this information is important for everyone including those who have not been affected by narcissistic mothers. Because of the brief nature of this book, it would be excellent for when you need a reminder on certain topics, for example the three roles assigned to children by a narcissistic mother. Each section is neatly laid out which allows for quick access to the particularly bits of information one requires in that moment. Although the way the book is written is very simplified and at times is repetitive and lacks good vocabulary, it really doesn't take away from the message being delivered and that is important. The way Caroline has written this works and she does mention how the book is written right at the beginning. It was meant to be this way. It is very easy to read and this supports the notion that the book is meant to be picked up quickly when you need reminding about something on narcissist mothers.

    Wow For so many years I thought this is just what all mothers do..I never realized this was a form of control and manipulation. This book opened my eyes that I was right and on the journey to healing.

    This book is self published and it shows, but boy am I thankful for it. It made me feel like I was reading the story of my life, and I don’t think I’ve ever felt so understood.

    I used to hesitate to read any sort of psychology book that wasn't written by a doctor. However, reading works by others who have lived through similar experiences has helped me come to terms with my own childhood. I nearly devoured this book and really appreciate how the author highlights different symptoms of PTSD and how we can heal both on our own and with the assistance of others. Thank you for this book, Caroline. 5/5. I used to hesitate to read any sort of psychology book that wasn't written by a doctor.

    I have to say that this book has been very informative. I’ve realized just recently that I’ve encountered family members who have NPD traits and I needed to know more to combat them. I’ve learned so much more than just NPD. I learned that I actually fit into the empathetic traits and the loner category. It’s been rough for me and my family but this book has helped me to see things much more clearer than before.

    Some good stuff Good advice. See within yourself behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and thinking patterns that stem from dealing with daily physiological, emotional, verbal and sometimes physical abuse. Learn the first steps to begin the healing process to recover from a lifetime of abuse.

    This provided an easy to understand approach to dealing with a problem. It’s accessible and well structured in helping you to understand the issues, their relevance and then provides a tool kit for helping to overcome them. There were lots of light bulb moments as I read this, and it gave me a well balanced and helpful summary.

    Very eye opening! My husband always told me my Mother was overbearing. After reading this book I had a “light bulb” moment and am better able to understand some issues that come with CPTSD.

I always wondered why my mom was so cruel & abusive to me. Not just in childhood but even now was an adult. I've been out my parents house for years now but she still treats me like a child & puts me down in a cruel way. She has to be right even when I've got proof from Google to say otherwise.

    The narration for this title is absolutely terrible. The narrator sounds like a bad text-to-speech program -- think Dragon Naturally Speaking in 2003 or so. There's no inflection or there's too much inflection; her tone is mechanical or saccharine, and the pauses? Good grief. She pauses every 10 seconds in all the wrong places. It throws everything off. You will be relieved when she stops speaking. This is useful information to have (insofar as I think one can actually "heal" from CPTSD; I have The narration for this title is absolutely terrible.

I do agree with some of the reviews that said this book could be really repetitive at times but I found the repetitiveness helpful to really emphasize some of the points about dealing with your narcissistic mother.

I’d recommend (if you have the ability to) see a therapist alongside reading this because it can bring up a lot and they’re a great resource to unpack things with.

    We need to have more literature like this especially in toxic mother worshiping culture of subcontinent. Discovered Narcissism through this book after crossing 30s. Just wish I discovered it earlier. I wonder, how many lives are getting destroyed by such vicious parents and these children might never know what they're dealing with. I strongly recommend to get this books and another literature on Narcissism translated into Urdu, Hindi and other languages of the subcontinent.

    Needs more organization and editing The information was fairly good, though a bit all over the place. I also felt the author was just discussing their specific experiences and the information was not useful for a general audience of children of a narcissistic mother. the sentences were sometimes nonsensical and difficult to understand-poorly edited.

    The description of each member of the family and their roles was so accurate. I wish I’d had access to this 18 years ago.
