My Life With A Narcissist is the true story of Sarah Tate, a young intelligent woman visiting Switzerland. She met Bill, an older more experienced man who romanced her, lavished her with expensive gifts and dinners to exclusive spas, and swept her off her feet. She had no idea Bill had a Narcissistic Personality.
People with this disorder appear trustworthy and usually paint everything as a rosy picture. They usually relate to people of a higher stature, and ordinary people are out of their reach. They place themselves on a pedestal and expect special treatment and praise. Sarah lived with him for six years and only once saw the real Bill. A chain of disasters brought his mental disorder to light leaving Sarah to care for her children. How she copes and keeps a sane mind demonstrates her courage in an impossible situation.
This is a gripping story that kept me reading to the very end. Watching Bill destroy Sarah and their children’s life was shocking. Everyone should be required to read this book. Most people have never heard of NPD. We should educate ourselves so that we never go through what Sarah did. Excellent reading.
