    Would you like to stop being the narcissist’s punching bag and regain the respect that you deserve?
     
    Do you tend to attract abusive people that take advantage of you? Are you left conflicted and confused after the relationship falls apart?
     
    It’s a fact that the narcissist in your life doesn’t care about you. Dr. Judith Orloff said it best, “Narcissists have an empathy deficit disorder – they’re not capable of empathy as we know it.”  
     
    As a result, they are more likely to display narcissistic traits, like engaging in manipulative or game playing behaviors, than to commit long-term. If you’ve been with a narcissist in a relationship, then you have become the victim of something called "narcissistic abuse.” 
     
    To the narcissist, you are nothing more than a source of attention, admiration, and praise. They need you to supply these things so that they can continue to support their inflated, false sense of self.  While narcissism in men is more common, women are no exception. Realizing that you are in an abusive relationship can be a difficult challenge for anyone to face. Luckily, you are not alone in this journey. There are important tools needed for this process to help you understand what has happened, cope with the trauma, and move on from narcissism in toxic relationships.
     
    The definition of narcissistic abuse implies that you’ve been a victim of verbal abuse, manipulation, gaslighting, exploitation, subjugation, neglect, isolation, or even violence, and reading this book will greatly benefit you! In Narcissist Abuse Recovery, you will learn how to break free of your abuser, get through the recovery process, and form meaningful relationships in the future. 
     
    In this book, you’ll discover: 
     
    How to enter the mind of a narcissist and uncover their deepest, darkest secrets 
     
    The undeniable traits that qualify you as the ultimate target for narcissists
     
    How to reveal the mask that narcissists use to hide their true identify and decode their language
     
    The one thing narcissist can’t go without and how you can starve them of it
     
    How to take your abuser's power away and regain the respect that you deserve
     
    The zombie effect that occurs when you don’t stand up for yourself, and how the narcissist can use it against you
     
    The horrifying abuse cycle stages narcissists funnel you through to turn into a chew toy
     
    How abusers can sometimes stick around long after you get rid of them
     
    A simple technique for silencing your abuser and taking control of the situation
     
    Weapons an abuser plans to use against you when trying to leave a narcissist marriage or going through a narcissism divorce
     
    Effective methods for recovering from abuse and healing psychological trauma 
     
    The inescapable narcissism that exists in your family, and how to fight against it
     
    And much much more!
     
    The road to healing and narcissism recovery has never been easier. This book was written by someone that has experienced what you have been through — pain and confusion, and desperation for something better. Most victims can have trouble leaving abusive relationships, but you can different. You can leave your abuser without feeling abandoned, even if you’re scared to be alone or have no place to go.

    Edgar Award Finalist: The hunt for Ronnie Shelton, Cleveland’s West Side Rapist, and the victims who united for justice—“Groundbreaking” (Ann Rule).   From 1983 to 1988, serial rapist Ronnie Shelton preyed on the women of Cleveland. Dubbed the West Side Rapist, twenty-seven-year-old Shelton would spy on his victims, stalk them, and brutally assault them in their homes. Arrested at least fifteen times for other crimes, Shelton slipped through the cracks of an overburdened police department so often it seemed he would never be caught.   Based on more than 150 interviews with the survivors, the police, psychiatrists, and Shelton himself, this “groundbreaking study of the infinite perils of serial rape” is the extensively researched story of Shelton’s crimes and the five-year pursuit that ended in his capture (Ann Rule). Investigative journalist James Neff also documents the long-term devastation caused by rape and celebrates the courage of the women who helped to put a sexual predator behind bars. It resulted in a sentence of 3,195 years—the longest in Ohio state history.   A finalist for the Edgar Award, Unfinished Murder is “not only a riveting nonfiction thriller but an important account about the true nature of sex crimes in America” from the prizewinning true crime journalist who is also the author of The Wrong Man: The Final Verdict on the Dr. Sam Sheppard Murder Case and Mobbed Up: Jackie Presser’s High-Wire Life in the Teamsters, the Mafia, and the FBI, which was the basis for the HBO movie, Teamster Boss (Nicholas Pileggi).

    New York Times Bestseller: The nightmare odyssey of a charismatic serial killer and a trail of terror stretching halfway around the world.  There was no pattern to the murders, no common thread other than the fact that the victims were all vacationers, robbed of their possessions and slain in seemingly random crimes. Authorities across three continents and a dozen nations had no idea they were all looking for same man: Charles Sobhraj, aka “The Serpent.”   A handsome Frenchman of Vietnamese and Indian origin, Sobhraj targeted backpackers on the “hippie trail” between Europe and South Asia. A master of deception, he used his powerful intellect and considerable sex appeal to lure naïve travelers into a life of crime. When they threatened to turn on him, Sobhraj murdered his acolytes in cold blood. Between late 1975 and early 1976, a dozen corpses were found everywhere from the boulevards of Paris to the slopes of the Himalayas to the back alleys of Bangkok and Hong Kong. Some police experts believe the true number of Sobhraj’s victims may be more than twice that amount.  Serpentine is the “grotesque, baffling, and hypnotic” true story of one of the most bizarre killing sprees in modern history (San Francisco Chronicle). Edgar Award–winning author Thomas Thompson’s mesmerizing portrait of a notorious sociopath and his helpless prey “unravels like fiction, but afterwards haunts the reader like the document it is” (The Plain Dealer, Cleveland).

    “For the past 10 years, since February 2009, I’ve been writing the Sunday profiles for the Cyprus Mail newspaper…” 
     
    Theo Panayides tells the stories of 60 very different people, taken from the many hundreds he’s interviewed over the years. All human life is here – from a humble street sweeper to a former President, from a pig farmer to a millionaire businessman, from a lifelong drifter to a pastry chef turned Iraqi refugee, from an LGBTI activist to a mystic who claims to have spoken to Jesus.
     
    World-champion freediver William Trubridge is here. Bestselling British novelist Victoria Hislop is here too. Some lives have been successful, others tragic. One man lost his family in the Rwandan genocide, another in the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. 
     
    Some of the stories are emotional; many are feelgood. Most relate in some way to Cyprus, the Mediterranean island where Panayides is based. With a smart, highly readable style and a deep compassion, he reveals the personalities of his very diverse subjects – though also finds himself returning often to the same questions of Time passing and life turning out unexpectedly, finding many of the same hopes and fears in these very different lives. Are they – and we – really so different, after all?
     
    ---
     
    Panayides is such a terrific writer and interviewer that I still remember profiles he wrote from 10 years ago. His characters jump off the page. Most are Cypriots, including visitors from the diaspora. And they’re from all walks of life… Entertaining, intelligent, highly recommended.

    Few global security issues stimulate more fervent passion than the application of brute force. Despite the fierce debate raging about it in government, society and the Academy, inadequate strategic understanding surrounds the issue, prompting the urgent need for —the first comprehensive systematic global analysis of 21st century state-initiated internal and external applications of brute force.
    Based on extensive case evidence, Robert Mandel assesses the short-term and long-term, the local and global, the military, political, economic, and social, and the state and human security impacts of brute force. He explicitly isolates the conditions under which brute force works best and worst by highlighting force initiator and force target attributes linked to brute force success and common but low-impact force legitimacy concerns. Mandel comes to two major overarching conclusions. First, that the modern global application of brute force shows a pattern of futility—but one that is more a function of states' misapplication of brute force than of the inherent deficiencies of this instrument itself. Second, that the realm for successful application of state-initiated brute force is shrinking: for while state-initiated brute force can serve as a transitional short-run local military solution, he says, it cannot by itself provide a long-run global strategic solution or serve as a cure for human security problems. Taking the evidence and his conclusions together, Mandel provides policy advice for managing brute force use in the modern world.
