Abused? Bullied? Used? Lied to? Look no further.
8 June 2019
I bought this book when after THAT realization: I was used, lied to... (I may have cleaned out the entire psychopath section in the book store).
In comparison this book is more general (not specific to narcissists, psychopaths or other personal disorder) but well-rounded.
George uses examples to demonstrate in depth the cause and effect of behavior on all effected. This is done in depth. Brilliant job.
George does not vilify any particular sex/class - his examples use both sexes and people from all backgrounds. I felt this was done equally (but I wasn’t keeping a tally).
George comes across as very factual and able to demonstrate a thorough understanding on the subtle more nuanced effects of covert aggression.
Clear definitions are provided for each term and explains why terms are the same or different and why one things might not mean another. This establishes clarity. His use of these terms throughout the book is consistent and easy to follow.
My first listen/read of this book was so eye opening. I needed time to digest it all. 10 months later, I am reading again but this time one chapter at a time. There is so much to reflect on and digest.
