Pathological mind games. Covert and overt put-downs. Triangulation. Gaslighting. Projection. These are the manipulative tactics survivors of malignant narcissists are unfortunately all too familiar with. As victims of silent crimes where the perpetrators are rarely held accountable, survivors of narcissistic abuse have lived in a war zone of epic proportions, enduring an abuse cycle of love-bombing and devaluation—psychological violence on steroids.
From how to heal our addiction to the narcissist to how to recognize a covert narcissist, Shahida Arabi's articles on narcissistic abuse have gained renown as some of the most accurate and in-depth depictions of this terrifying trauma, resonating with millions of survivors all over the world and receiving endorsements from numerous mental health professionals.
In this essay compilation, readers can enjoy some of her most popular articles as well as new thought pieces on narcissistic abuse: what therapists have to say about malignant narcissists and how children of narcissistic parents can become trapped in the trauma repetition cycle. Survivors are offered new insights on what it means to be both a survivor and a thriver of covert manipulation and trauma.
POWER teaches us that it is important to not only understand the tactics of toxic personalities but also to recognize and combat the effects of narcissistic abuse; it guides the survivor to learning, growing, healing and most importantly of all—owning their agency to rebuild their lives and transform their powerlessness into victory.

I had the misfortune to be with a covert narcissistic psychopath who made my life a nightmare of indescribable pain. Her books helped me to begin to understand what I was dealing with.
If you only buy this book you’ll be in front.

You know the feeling when you know something is wrong but you cannot quite put your finger on it and start blaming yourself for lack of an alternative?
This will put it all in perspective and call out a hidden epidemic of abuse..
Modern life is saturated with this kind of malaise and yet on the outside it seems as if nothing is wrong...Well this book brings well needed clarity and yes rage to the situation. Pure passionate rage much needed and long overdue against an injustice so widespread and malignant that anger is the only thing which will bring it out into full view out from its dark hiding places and into the air where we can breath again and heal old chronic wounds and gather courage to voice our oppression and give solace to others who are trapped in suffering. The author is the bravest most inspiring person i have come across and she is very much needed..read it and wake up and reclaim your lost power..
I understand this book is enrolled in the Kindle Matchbook Program but I cannot find how to download my free e-book copy on this books Amazon page. I have kept the overall rating as 5 stars as I see this as being an Amazon issue rather than an author issue. Please can Amazon provide information on how I can obtain my free e-book copy?
This book has helped me understand and has released me from the fog of confusion.
