This description of Narcissistic mother's was eerily similar my experiences. It's like she lived part of my life. The struggle is so hard to explain to ppl with normal parents that you just sound crazy when you try and explain it. This book has put into words what I've gone through and still live. There are some editing mistakes but that does not detract from this worthwhile read. If you want to feel okay about yourself and understand what's really been going on your whole life with your narc mother, this is a good book to read.
