Our customer reviews

This book is so well written and so useful. It helped me so much to get myself together, to understand, to start thinking instead of just being in a shock like, hurtful, state when I found out about my ex boyfriend what a sick, enormous liar he is. You can recognize yourself in everything what she describes and explains in this book, it opens new path on which you find yourself. Path much liberated from the experience of being in the web of lies, deceived and manipulated, hurt in the core of your being, path that you feel is leading you back to yourself and your values. It is hard but the book is very helpful. Susan writes in an incredible understanding way, she is a very gifted writer.show more
