It might be surprising to learn that the emotional qualities that allow you to remain close to others, empathize, collaborate, compromise, perspective-take, and easily resolve conflict, in most healthy relationships, can actually backfire with a narcissist.

Why? Because you see the good. You trust. You empathize. These emotionally intelligent attributes keep you connected to others and help you resolve conflict amicably and maintain healthy relationships.

Written by psychotherapist and attachment expert, Dr. Erin Leonard, How to Outsmart a Narcissist breaks down how a narcissist manipulates and exploits these traits and details strategies to protect yourself against their attacks, whether they come from a romantic partner, a work colleague, a spouse, a co-parent, or a family member.

Filled with relatable stories, emotionally intelligent solutions, and practical advice to help you outsmart the narcissist in your life, this is your guide to finally finding peace from their chaos.
