    I'm sorry. This book was well intentioned. It's a good idea for a book. But it needs a ton of line by line editing. So many sentences are too vague, too simplistic, to unspecific. Here's a not too offensive example of non-specificity, ...."PTSD also causes extreme distress to the victim's mental health, and they undergo a personality change, including the ability for their mind to function properly." ...O.K., yeah. The author should have been more careful to explain that Gaslighting is a specifi I'm sorry. This book was well intentioned. It's a good idea for a book. But it needs a ton of line by line editing.

The author should have been more careful to explain that Gaslighting is a specific subset to broader categories, such as unconscious hostility, sadism, moral failings such as lust, greed, selfishness. I haven't finished reading the book. I'm half-way through. It's good intentions and occasional success at explaining things correctly make me feel I should.

    I received this book in return for an honest review. I received nothing for the review. There are a lot of people out there called gaslighters. They are master manipulators. Their biggest goal is total control in a relationship. They make you doubt your experiences. One way they do this is say things like "that never happened". They love to block and divert an argument and discussion, manipulating it so it will make you doubt your sanity. They are good at trivializing your thoughts and feelings. I received this book in return for an honest review. I received nothing for the review. There are a lot of people out there called gaslighters. They are master manipulators. Their biggest goal is total control in a relationship. They make you doubt your experiences. One way they do this is say things like "that never happened". They love to block and divert an argument and discussion, manipulating it so it will make you doubt your sanity. They are good at trivializing your thoughts and feelings. You could get to be "cold" or not show feelings as much after being invalidated in such a way. One thing you can do to overcome gaslighting is to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT. This involves reaffirming what happened really did happen by journaling and such. A psychiatrist, if you choose one, can help you move forward in the relationship, whether you choose to exit it or not. Loving Kindness Meditation, or LKM, is a powerful tool for going forward. If you feel you have "cold" feelings and lack the empathy and loving kindness towards others you would like to have, practice meditating on those you love and those who love you often. Do it until your heart fills with love, says Presley. LKM can help you also to accept yourself, forgive, and of course, build better connections. Go ahead and read this book. It will be worth your time. #lovingkindness #meditation "gaslighting #abuse

    Gaslighting is a term that has been used frequently during our current political climate. I also could readily relate as I struggled in my own abusive relations so I had a personal interest in digging deeper into the concept. Presley has written a comprehensive, well-researched guide to recognizing and effectively dealing with people in our lives—both personal and professional—who have impacted us in a negative way through gaslighting, namely as a characteristic of an abusive relationship. Altho Gaslighting is a term that has been used frequently during our current political climate. I also could readily relate as I struggled in my own abusive relations so I had a personal interest in digging deeper into the concept. Presley has written a comprehensive, well-researched guide to recognizing and effectively dealing with people in our lives—both personal and professional—who have impacted us in a negative way through gaslighting, namely as a characteristic of an abusive relationship. Although Presley does not reveal her specific story, she writes from a position of knowledge both as a professional and a person who is able to leave an abusive relationship. I highly recommend this guide for people who seek a better understanding of what gaslighting is, the characteristics of narcotic personality disorder as it relates to the abusive person and how to leave an abusive relationship.

    I found this book very interesting. It provides what I consider an in-depth look at Gas Lighting. The author covers the history and all the specific things that one can use to tell if they are being Gas Lighted. The author then provides actions one can take if they think they are being Gas Lighted. I think the book would be very helpful to many readers. I learned a lot from it myself.
