Since discovering the roots of narcissism in my world one year ago, I have read a great deal on the subject. This is, hands down, the most helpful book I have read to date. Most books on the market focus on identification of narcissism, or validation of those individuals left in their wake (both important concepts). But after that, we need real help! This book offers the most realistic and cogent look at what can actually be done after the damage is done. As the child and ex-spouse of narcissists, I appreciated the author gently leading me to examine my own culpability and enabling behaviors, the fallout in my life, and most importantly, how to begin undoing the damage and move on.

I just read the book on the The Wizard of Oz and other Narcissists, words can not describe how this book has deeply touched and reflected to me my own life !!!! The writing is exquisite and the way the author balances/explains this dance of both the narcissist and the codependent is incredible !!! I really can't thank her enough, I happened to come across the book on Amazon.com. by accident. The title caught my eye as the Wizard of OZ was my favorite movie as a child.
I am the codependent in a marriage and as I try to untangle myself from this relationship I will use the book often to remind me of the dance I'm in.
I will highly recommend without any reservation this book to friends/therapists etc. as it's one of the best I've read!! I've read hundreds of self help books, well, maybe even thousands over the years. This book is one I won't be able to lend to anyone!!! I'll have to get a second copy !!!

This book is the Rosetta Stone for co-dependents involved with a narcissistic personality. It is the master switch that when turned on illuminates every conceivable aspect of a relationship with those that for too long have been unidentified. I have read this book five times and am continually amazed at the depth. I have repeatedly seen the enormous relief and hope it brings. It not only explains complex psychology in very common language, but it gives practical advice on how to heal. Everyone I know would benefit from reading this book. It should be featured on national TV and radio asap. It's that important. I hope it becomes a huge bestseller because it is absolutely critical information for so many. It can't happen fast enough!

I ordered this book shortly after I had left my 21 years marriage with my narcissist husband. It was such a relief to read that it wasn't my imagination or that it was all my fault as I was always told. The emotional abuse I had left behind had dulled my senses and my mind. I had spend 21 years trying to duct tape our marriage and those in these relationships find that they receive only devaluation, criticism, denial of any responsibility for any wrongdoing; I could go on forever. It was as if Payson was writing about my relationshiip. Incredibly insightful and so helpful. I highly recommend it.

You can save yourself hours of therapy and years of depression by reading this book. This book describes the problems of the person with narcissistic personality disorder, and the codependent responses of significant others in his or her life. It is probably the best book I have ever read on Narcissism. What makes this book unique is the hopeful tone it is written in, and the practical advice for anyone trying to make things work out. Hurry and read it!
