don't ya just hate it when...
okay, got the book a while ago and started looking through it. Wham - hit by a FOO issue. Scan a few more pages - wham, again.
I should have known better. It's a self-help book that had some appeal to me. I should know by now it means there's some sort of lesson for me to learn by reading the book.
But because of this, I haven't read it in depth as much as I need to, to do a full review. What I can say (so far) is that I don't think it's going to be the kind of book that will help my kids with their dad, like I had hoped. I was looking for something that had more case studies with suggestions on how to deal with similar situations. This book is more the workbook style self help book, where you do quizzes in each chapter and your score tells you how much of an impact that type of narcissistic parent had on you as a child.
It looks like the book has some good information in it, but it's going to take me a while before I'm ready to tackle more of my own FOO issues and read it.
