My Life With A Narcissist is the true story of Sarah Tate, a young intelligent woman visiting Switzerland. She met Bill, an older more experienced man who romanced her, lavished her with expensive gifts and dinners to exclusive spas, and swept her off her feet. She had no idea Bill had a Narcissistic Personality.

People with this disorder appear trustworthy and usually paint everything as a rosy picture. They usually relate to people of a higher stature, and ordinary people are out of their reach. They place themselves on a pedestal and expect special treatment and praise. Sarah lived with him for six years and only once saw the real Bill. A chain of disasters brought his mental disorder to light leaving Sarah to care for her children. How she copes and keeps a sane mind demonstrates her courage in an impossible situation.

This is a gripping story that kept me reading to the very end. Watching Bill destroy Sarah and their children’s life was shocking. Everyone should be required to read this book. Most people have never heard of NPD. We should educate ourselves so that we never go through what Sarah did. Excellent reading.


reading this book was like looking in the mirror.i to was married and caught up in something simular.i exscaped and was able to rebuild my life.after 8 years of being on my own i met and fell in love with someone very charming and clever.it did not take long for the cracks to appear and show there was nothing but empty space behind.with help and suport i have been able to understand a lot.sadly i was programed to accept this behaviour from an early age.this illness narcicissm is dangerous and touches many people.sadly it has affected both my self and my children which in turn could affect theirs.more needs to be known about it.so well done sarah for your book.hope you are free from the guilt.
