Summary

Although clinical research has been conducted on narcissism as a disorder, less is known about its effects on victims who are in toxic relationships with partners with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Individuals with this disorder engage in chronic devaluation and manipulation of their partners, a psychological and emotional phenomenon known as "narcissistic abuse." Since pathological narcissists are unlikely to seek treatment for their disorder, it is difficult to pinpoint what exactly makes a narcissistic abuser tick and the manipulative tactics they use, which are likely to differ from those of other types of abusers as they are more covert and underhanded. What is even more baffling is the addiction we form with our narcissistic abusers, created by biochemical bonds and trauma bonds that are also unlike any other relationship we experience.  
 
In this book, survivors will learn:  
 
•The red flags of narcissistic behavior and covert manipulation tactics, including subtle signs many survivors don't catch in the early stages of dating a narcissist.  
•The motives behind narcissistic abuse and techniques to resist a narcissist's manipulation.  
•Why abuse survivors usually stay with a narcissist long after incidents of abuse occur.  
•How our own brain chemistry locks us into an addiction with a narcissistic or toxic partner, creating cravings for the constant chaos of the abuse cycle.  
•Traditional and alternative methods to begin to detach and heal from the addiction to the narcissist, including eleven important steps all survivors must take on the road to healing.  
•Methods to rewrite the narratives that abusers have written for us so we can begin to reconnect with our authentic selves and purpose.  
•How to rebuild an even more victorious and empowering life after abuse.  
 
Narcissistic partners employ numerous stealthy tactics to devalue and manipulate their victims behind closed doors. These partners lack empathy and demonstrate an incredible sense of entitlement and sense of superiority which drives their exploitative behavior in interpersonal relationships. Their tactics can include verbal abuse and emotional invalidation, stonewalling, projection, taking control of every aspect of the victim’s life, gaslighting and triangulation. Due to the narcissistic partner’s “false self,” the charismatic mask he or she projects to society, the victim often feels isolated in this type of abuse and is unlikely to have his or her experiences validated by friends, family and society.  
 
Using the latest scientific research as well as thousands of survivor accounts, this book will explore how the emotional manipulation tactics of narcissistic and antisocial partners affect those around them, particularly with regards to its cumulative socioemotional and psychological effects on the victim. It will also address questions such as: What successful techniques, tools and healing modalities (both traditional and alternative) are available to survivors who have been ridiculed, manipulated, verbally abused and subject to psychological warfare? How can they forge the path to healthier relationships, especially if they've been a victim of narcissistic abuse by multiple people or raised by a narcissist? Most importantly, how can they use their experiences of narcissistic abuse to empower themselves towards personal development? What can their interactions with a narcissistic abuser teach them about themselves,their relationship patterns and the wounds that still need to be healed in order to move forward into the happy relationships and victorious lives they do deserve?

    Michael Jackson is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable and iconic figures of the twentieth century. A musical genius of song, sound and dance with each period of his life identifiable by its own creative ground breaking style. If you were on planet earth from the early sixties to the late nineties you were influenced by the culture that was Michael Jackson, his trademark Moon Walk, white glove and iconic songs made him one of the most recognizable musical personalities. His influence as a cultural icon extended beyond the music and dance, he became part of what we identified as popular culture.
    
    Then came the public unwrapping of Michael Jackson the person, his obsession with his lost childhood, relationship and marriage to Lisa Marie Presley followed by his second marriage to Debbie Rowe. Accusations of child abuse and court cases came and went. His children were born and he began a slow retirement into an older Michael. However this was not to be the end of Michael's career as 2009 brought him a whole new possibility to rectify his financial decline, signing to perform fifty plus tour dates in England and Europe.
    
    Unexpectedly Michael died on 25th June 2009 aged fifty, three weeks prior to the commencement of his 'This Is It' tour in England and Europe. His personal physician Doctor Conrad Murray was unable to resuscitate him, eventually being charged and convicted of involuntary manslaughter, receiving the maximum prison sentence of four years.
    
    Michael will undoubtedly be remembered as the greatest entertainer in the history of popular music eclipsing all the legends such as Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones and those before him.
    
    So much has been written about Michael's life that most of the facts are available to view, what remains are the unanswered questions to his life.
    
    Who killed Michael Jackson?
    Who are the real mother and father of Michael's children?
    We will give you all the answers from the source, Michael Jackson.

    Lost Girls - An Unsolved...

    Award-winning investigative reporter Robert Kolker delivers a haunting and humanizing account of the true-life search for a serial killer still at large on Long Island, in a compelling tale of unsolved murder and Internet prostitution. 
    One late spring evening in 2010, Shannan Gilbert, after running through the oceanfront community of Oak Beach screaming for her life, went missing. No one who had heard of her disappearance thought much about what had happened to the twenty-four-year-old: she was a Craigslist prostitute who had been fleeing a scene—of what, no one could be sure. The Suffolk County Police, too, seemed to have paid little attention—until seven months later, when an unexpected discovery in a bramble alongside a nearby highway turned up four bodies, all evenly spaced, all wrapped in burlap. But none of them Shannan's. 
    There was Maureen Brainard-Barnes, last seen at Penn Station in Manhattan three years earlier, and Melissa Barthelemy, last seen in the Bronx in 2009. There was Megan Waterman, last seen leaving a hotel in Hauppage, Long Island, just a month after Shannan's disappearance in 2010, and Amber Lynn Costello, last seen leaving a house in West Babylon a few months later that same year. Like Shannan, all four women were petite and in their twenties, they all came from out of town to work as escorts, and they all advertised on Craigslist and its competitor, Backpage. 
    In a triumph of reporting—and in a riveting narrative—Robert Kolker presents the first detailed look at the shadow world of escorts in the Internet age, where making a living is easier than ever and the dangers remain all too real. He has talked exhaustively with the friends and family of each woman to reveal the three-dimensional truths about their lives, the struggling towns they came from, and the dreams they chased. And he has gained unique access to the Oak Beach neighborhood that has found itself the focus of national media scrutiny—where the police have flailed, the body count has risen, and the neighbors have begun pointing fingers at one another. There, in a remote community, out of sight of the beaches and marinas scattered along the South Shore barrier islands, the women's stories come together in death and dark mystery. Lost Girls is a portrait not just of five women, but of unsolved murder in an idyllic part of America, of the underside of the Internet, and of the secrets we keep without admitting to ourselves that we keep them.
