The title gives the reader the idea that this will be a positive healing resource on coping with narcissistic relatives from a Christian standpoint. However, to my dismay, the entirety of this book is filled with an angry and bitter tone. That is far from the emotional stage of healing from which someone should attempt to write a self-help book for others...a personal collection of memoirs, maybe. While Ms. Pittelli has a certificate of completion in Christian Counseling from an online university, I do not think that qualifies her call to herself by the title "Sister" or "Reverend". After finally finishing this book, my impression was that she is in no position to give any advice as she is in dire need of psychological help herself.

In this case, you CAN judge a book by its cover. Stupid book cover, stupid book.

Waste. Of. Money.

Did not get a good feeling after reading this book. The bitterness of the author's words does not make for an enjoyable read. If you're looking for a positive Christian book that uplifts the reader, look elsewhere.

It's like this book was a meltdown of its own.

This book is more for the paranoid overly-sensitive readers rather than those who need help dealing with REAL abusers. Renee's work and teachings from my POV are not Biblical.

This book fails IMO. Fighting narcissism with bitterness and anger is not the way to go.

HIGHLY disappointing.

The book is about as mature as the book cover, how fitting.

Too much of a self-centered approach, more feelings-based than logic-based aimed at making the reader feel good and/or validated, on top of it all uses religion to try to justify a solopsistic worldview ("I'm the center of the universe"), which is highly contradictory with Christianity..Could have focused on what the Bible says to recognize toxic people (gossips, self-aggrandizing narcissists, greedy lovers of money, false Christians who put worldly political correctness before God, etc.)

When dealing with narcissists, you can't be warm and friendly, but cold and business-like. One of the most important things is to know how to negotiate, since everything with a narcissist is a test to see if you will be subservient and "beneath" them. This book didn't give the right advice for knowing how to negotiate deals, and read the enemy narcissists' true intentions and strategies. To know how to deal with people, particularly difficult people (and still come out on top), a friend recommended Trump's Art of the Deal (it's a best-seller for a reason). The advice in that book can be applied to dealing with narcissists and whatever they may pull. Huuuge difference.

Didn't like this one either, and got no use out of it.

Such wasted potential for the topic of narcissism/narcissists. I was hoping for a book that "gets it" but was let down. How to explain searching for help against narcissists, when it turns out that source only fuels toxicity and dwelling on the past... Not much difference between these books and the author's Facebook page (basically a collection of shared posts from other people's words on narcissism, and the occasional gossip/rant). This book may appeal to you if: you are a hive-minded person, or cliquey and group think oriented, you're intolerant of dissent or differing opinions, you judge others as bad people and label them accordingly. Constant re-hashing things from the past and never moving forward...who wants that? Not me. In the trash it goes.

This book was so helpful! It is peppered with examples of spiritual abuse, cherry picked bible verse drama and it is extremely validating. Definitely worth every penny.
