A Victime finds Hope in quest for knowledge
If you have ever been haunted by the encounters of a childhood less than the average man experiences, and wondered why. When answers are provided it provides healing and relief from an unstructured and floating stress which has caused many a heart ache. Some of these places I felt as though I was actually in this book! Relieved to know I was not the only one who suffered, and putting a label on the suffering helps to understand and reason yourself back into a reality in which you thought was impossible for you to have. Excellent job on understanding the narcissistic mind, and the reaction and emotions and scars of their victims. When knowledge is provided, healing occurs, along with the possibility of help for the people who are doing the victimizing.

Another Child of a Narcissist Weighs In
Coming to grips with your parent¿s inability to love is a very, very difficult process. And it is a process. Two talented counselors and this book were the beginning of my journey. This book is written from the heart, and because it is, it connected to mine. The story and insights were powerfully important in my life. Because of my parent¿s narcissism, one life was lost and two more were in peril. It was imperative that I understand and repair the damage my parent¿s illness caused. This book does not provide many answers to recovery. But it is a very important part of connecting to the pain and finding a beginning. I had to know the ¿truth¿ before I could begin the process of healing. This book will help you find the truth.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Adult Child of Narcissist Finds Answers
Narcissism is a very real, very specific disorder, and should be approached clinically and directly, as in Trapped In The Mirror. Golomb helps readers get a proper grasp on the often misunderstood concept of narcissism, and in turn leads readers who are also victims to understand the magnitude of what has happened to them. There are the beginnings of ideas for change by the end of the book, and whereas these are not explored to the full, the book is none the poorer for it. When one is ready to learn about the topic of narcissism, Trapped In The Mirror is simply an excellent place to BEGIN. And in fact, for this reader in particular, great strides were made in the healing process as over and over and over again 'light bulbs' clicked on - familiar scenarios were demystified - and because the author writes from personal experience, a bit of weight was lifted just by realizing 'somebody gets it.'Was this review helpful?
