A READER says about "Malignant Self-love: Narcissism Revisited", the BIBLE of NARCISSISM:
FIVE STARS REVIEW Victim of a Victim
I am the victim of my mother who has NPD - Narcissistic Personality Disorder. I can't describe in words how heartbreaking it is to realize what your mother is and what she has done to you and your siblings but it is also a relief to know in your heart of hearts that you are not crazy and what you always thought was true it true. I was the rebel and for that I was was the target of a violent war that I could never win. I was to be a faithful subservient servant or thrown out of the family. I chose the latter and I am still trying to heal from her after all these years. I still have most of myself left, as for my siblings they are mirror images of her or codependents - too blind in denial to ever see the truth. It is scary but true. I know that there is a void forever in me for the love that I never knew that was saved for my mother who never really loved me. This is the sheer disbelief. I loved a woman who never cared about me in fact tortured me. Dr. Vaknin brings to light every question and situation that has described my mother, my family and me. I really wish more people would not be so afraid to take the road less traveled like Dr. Vaknin.
