Overview

"Bernstein provides a field guide to the various types of Emotional Vampires and advises readers how to protect themselves from being victims of these predatory personalities." Boston Globe

From bestselling author Albert J. Bernstein

The author of Dinosaur Brains offers protection from people who seek to destroy the emotional and psychological well-being of others. Like the fabled demons, these vampires:

  • Think their needs are more important than yours
  • Believe "the rules" apply only to other people
  • Use their tempers in the same way terrorists use bombs

Emotional Vampires tells readers how to spot a "vampire" in their lives, which defense strategies to employ to prevent one from striking, and what to do if and when they find themselves under attack.

Personality-disordered people are not ignorant dummies - far from it. They are super-slick users and the more you know about them ahead of time, the more likely to you will respond effectively to your body's inner thump of warning you that are being taken advantage of. This book details such conscience-less characters for you in such a way that you will never disbelieve yourself again!
