Product description


"A must-read for HSPs and for anyone who has ever struggled to understand, handle, and survive toxic people. Shahida has written a book that provides all the answers and information you could ever need in a wonderfully clear, relatable way. This is a book that I wish I had when I was trying to find my way through the minefield of being around toxic people. It will, surely, change lives."
--Annie Kaszina, PhD, emotional abuse recovery specialist, and author of Married to Mr. Nasty--Annie Kaszina, PhD

"Another invaluable recovery resource from Shahida Arabi. This book exposes new types of toxic personalities, offers practical advice for protecting yourself, and dives into the hidden strengths that so many survivors share. An essential guide that teaches us how to empower our empathy."
--Jackson MacKenzie, author of Psychopath Free and Whole Again--Jackson MacKenzie

"I'm a big Shahida fan. Her writing is thoroughly researched, cited, and written in a way that is engaging, witty, and oh-so knowledgeable. This book will help the beginner just realizing what narcissistic abuse is, as well as anyone fully educated and aware. I highly recommend this to therapists, lawyers, judges, and survivors."
--Kristin Sunanta Walker, founder of Mental Health News Radio (MHNR) Network: the world's first podcast network dedicated to mental health, with over twelve million listeners--Kristin Sunanta Walker

"Outstanding work! Once again, Shahida masterfully blends her own insight and wisdom with evidence-based research and practical strategies for empowering survivors to heal from narcissistic abuse, and effectively disentangle themselves from toxic encounters with individuals that meet criteria for narcissistic or antisocial personality disorders. I regularly recommend Shahida's books to clients in my private practice, and without exception, they emphatically find her writings personally beneficial in multifaceted ways."
--Athena Staik, PhD, licensed marriage and family therapist; and author of What a Narcissist Means When He Says "I Love You" on her blog, Neuroscience and Relationships with Dr. Athena Staik--Athena Staik, PhD

"Shahida has become the voice of our generation, a global expert, and a fearless thought leader. In this book, she not only illuminates the highly sensitive person (HSP) experience, she invites you to nurture your authentic self and discover how to use your 'superpowers' to thrive! If you are sensitive, intuitive, and attuned to the emotions and energy of others, you'll learn not only how to become wonderfully emotionally intelligent, but also how to change your life and our world for the better."
--Monica M. White, LMHC, licensed mental health counselor--Monica M. White, LMHC

"With remarkable detail, corroborating science, and content vetted by a therapist, Shahida unravels the mystery of why so many highly sensitive people are vulnerable to the machinations of persons of disturbed character. A must-read for those looking to reclaim their lives and fulfill their true potential."
--George Simon, PhD, author of In Sheep's Clothing, Character Disturbance, How Did We End Up Here, and The Judas Syndrome--George Simon, PhD

A brilliant book broken down into information that really makes sense. Shahida’s other books are very worth while reading also. A must for anyone suffering from abuse. Educate yourself.
