Have you ever been in a relationship with a psychopath? Chances are, even if you did, you would never know it. Psychopaths are cunning charmers and master manipulators, to the point where you start to accept the most extreme behaviors as normal…
Even if it hurts you.
All around us, every single day, human beings devoid of empathy are wreaking havoc and destroying lives in the coldest, most heartless ways imaginable. In constant pursuit of money, sex, influence, or simple entertainment, psychopaths will do whatever it takes to gain power over others. They hide behind a veil of normalcy, arranging their friends and partners like pawns in a game of chess.
Using false praise and flattery to get what they want, they can lure any unsuspecting target into a relationship. Once hooked, their charming promises spin into mind games and psychological torture. Victims are left devastated and confused, unable to recognize—or even put into words—the nightmare that just took place.
This significantly expanded edition of Psychopath Free contains new chapters, updated content, and real survivor experiences. Written from the heart, it is the first guide for survivors written by a survivor, offering hope for healing and thriving after psychopathic abuse. Say goodbye to the chaos, self-doubt, and victimization. You are free.

I simply couldn't put this book down. I felt like as the victim/target in a 7 month relationship with my ex-girlfriend, all the signs and behaviors this book outlines were all there. I guess even after catching on to the lies and deception I have caught after my "detective" work during the tenure of our relationship, I still wanted to believe that there was some good in her. It's been nearly 4 months since the breakup, with full No Contact, and it does get easier. There was absolutely no closure and I no longer long for one. She was just a mirage. I'm 32 and she is 29. Only positive thing I got from the relationship is that it made me a better man. The victim the book describes is ME and the psychopath is HER. Very well written and informative book.
This book is excellent and helped me to understand the hell I just went through in my marriage to a monster. It's nice to know that I'm not the crazy one. More importantly, this book and others have caused the fog to lift and take me out of that zombie state that being married to a psycho had me in. God has really used you to help me. Thank you!
Awesome book. I was trying to figure out what was wrong with me.. Why for some reason with this relationship was I so different.. This book has opened my eyes. Although I know this is who I had married it is still so hard to just let go. No matter what he has done. I am still working on this. You would think after reading this it would make things better, all it did for me is help me to understand it's not me.. I still can't help but to want to help him still. Like I said I'm a work in progress. If anyone is going threw this please read this book it explains so much and even though I haven't let go doesn't mean you won't be stronger then me and be able to.. I will eventually and I have confidence in myself to be able to. Great read!!!
