    Description

    Are You Being Gaslighted? 

    Check for these telltale signs: 

    • You constantly second-guess yourself. 
    • You wonder, "Am I being too sensitive?" a dozen times a day. 
    • You wonder frequently if you are a "good enough" girlfriend/wife/employee/friend/daughter. 
    • You have trouble making simple decisions. 
    • You think twice before bringing up innocent topics of conversation. 
    • You frequently make excuses for your partner's behavior to friends and family. 
    • Before your partner comes home from work, you run through a checklist in your head to anticipate anything you might have done wrong that day. 
    • You buy clothes for yourself, furnishings for your apartment, or other personal purchases thinking about what your partner would like instead of what would make you feel great. 
    • You actually start to enjoy the constant criticism, because you think, "What doesn't kill me will make me stronger." 
    • You start speaking to your husband through his secretary so you don't have to tell him things you're afraid might upset him. 
    • You start lying to avoid the put-downs and reality twists. 
    • You feel as though you can't do anything right. 
    • You frequently wonder if you're good enough for your lover. 
    • Your kids start trying to protect you from being humiliated by your partner. 
    • You feel hopeless and joyless. 

    Your husband crosses the line in his flirtations with another woman at a dinner party. When you confront him, he asks you to stop being insecure and controlling. After a long argument, you apologize for giving him a hard time. 

    Your boss backed you on a project when you met privately in his office, and you went full steam ahead. But at a large gathering of staff - including yours - he suddenly changes his tune and publicly criticizes your poor judgment. When you tell him your concerns for how this will affect your authority, he tells you that the project was ill-conceived and you'll have to be more careful in the future. You begin to question your competence. 

    Your mother belittles your clothes, your job, your friends, and your boyfriend. But instead of fighting back as your friends encourage you to do, you tell them that your mother is often right and that a mature person should be able to take a little criticism. 

    If you think things like this can't happen to you, think again. Gaslighting is when someone wants you to do what you know you shouldn't and to believe the unbelievable. It can happen to you and it probably already has.

    Eye- opening

    I have found myself in many situations described in this book. I have found it an eye-opening for me. I kept on listening to it in my weak moments or just to remind me how strong I am becoming.

    Women's book

    This is completely from a women's perspective. This book, in itself, is gaslighting every man that reads it. Men, do not read or listen to this garbage.

    Sexist

    This book is really really sexist. Apparently Gaslighting can only happen to women. I went through severe gaslighting during an 8 month relationship 3 years ago and I just recently found out that the real cause of multiple mental health diagnoses and years of pain and confusion was from her gaslighting me, and when I read the first two chapters of the book, the forward author, and the author of the book itself just talked about how "even the most confident woman" can be brought down by gaslighting, and "several women" have made it through, etc. It would be just as easy to say person. When I read this, everytime I hear the author say "women who..." it makes me feel invalidated as a man that I've had many of the same things happen to me. It's like she's assuming "all women are good. Only men will gaslight". That's blatant sexism. As a human being who's had this problem and is trying to recover from it, I don't want to be gaslighted even more by the author, who's acting like this is only a problem for women, and always hearing the men are at fault. I'm seeking help for this problem, and her sexism is doing the opposite. I understand if most of the people she's had as clients were women, so it would make sense to use "her" or "she" when talking about clients. But, also saying only "women" when talking about people who could be gaslighting is gaslighting in itself. This is emasculating and complete bullshit.

    Tough topic but important

    This is so prevalent but important to read. It isn't the most enjoyable book but one to read for great awareness.

    I prefer writers who don't politically polarize

    Russian collusion & pretending not to spy while spying are also gaslighting. Politics are rough and should stay out of these kinds of books. I'm surprised she didn't balance the political climate or better yet, leave it out. I feel gaslighted. Such a wonderful opportunity to address real emotional safety to all of us in all walks of life.

    This book is very bad.

    This book is very bad. I can’t even get through it. The premise is wrong. Instead of teaching about gaslighting as abuse and that verbal abuse is wrong, it attempts to shift the blame onto the victim. “It takes two to tango.” This is absolutely wrong.

    I feel sorry for every person who listens to this book and isn’t strong enough to recognize the abusive message. I’m very glad I was far enough into my recovery from emotional and verbal abuse to recognize that this book is far from the mark. I really tried to give it a chance, but I simply couldn’t listen anymore to this misguided and wrong advice.

    There are far better resources out there on verbal abuse and gaslighting. This book is not helpful. Stay away.

    Practicality seems to be lacking

    Did you know that it takes at least two people in order for manipulative behavior to take place? This is one, among other, of questionable questions this book answers. So, if you didn't know it, give it a listen.

    Dr. Stern does the job introducing the notion of gaslighting in clear and accessible language and gives a number of examples of how it may occur in life. The book is good for those who want to learn about certain behavioral patterns of manipulative people.

    Unfortunately, Dr. Stern doesn't go into much detail explaining in operational terms how gaslighting works. What aspects of these behaviors are directed towards the ends of a manipulator? What does he/she use in this or that specific case in order to get what he/she wants? What does he/she say or do, and what does he/she hope the victim's reaction to be? What exact words or doings can indicate an attempt at manipulation? How do we know?

    I believe that these and many other questions could have been answered in this book if a clearer framework for answering them had been established. As I see it, manipulative people have two main relative priorities: 1) to get what they (in the broadest sense) want; 2) to conceal the first priority. I think that more, and more detailed, examples would have been more beneficial to the reader from the approach of looking for answers to the two general questions: 1) What does the manipulator want in this case, and how do we know it (what aspects of his behavior serve as indicators)? 2) What does he do in order to keep his motives hidden, and, again, how do we know?

    The idea of the "gaslight tango" - that it takes two people for gaslighting to take place - is, first of all, obvious. Second, it implies that the 'victim' can simply become aware of the fact the he/she is being gaslighted and just stop falling for it. No instructions given as what to look for in the suspected gaslighter's behavior and what exact patterns of his/her behavior make it evident that it is gaslighting (or other type of manipulative behavior) that is taking place. Gaslighting and manipulation is not like, for instance, advertising, that we know is manipulative, and we can stop falling for it, because deception and manipulation in advertising is common knowledge. A suggestion to stop falling for gaslighting is no different from one to stop being deceived when you have no way of knowing, on the spot, that you are being given false information.

    Recommendations such as to learn to see yourself as a lovable person, to believe that your perceptions are true, to know that the truth is the truth and you know the truth, etc., seem as good for a gaslighter as for a gaslightee. One can easily mistake any behavior for a manipulation just because one feels uncomfortable and thinks it's someone else's fault. "My partner is concerned that I spend too much money. He must be gaslighting me." In this particular example it's never brought up why he or she should be concerned with overspending. Perhaps, saving up for a rainy day, when he or she may need an expensive surgery, or in case of another financial crisis in the country, or whatever else. Nope, he's just gaslighting.

    The directions are too general and abstract. In order to deal or prevent gaslighting or other types of manipulative behavior from happening one has to be able to recognize it as such, and in order to do that one has to know in as much detail as possible how it works. Dr. Stern does give examples of specific ways to reply to a gaslighter, but, again, there's no steady framework for reacting to his/her behavior. All the replies 'work' in this book, because they are in this book and the author says they work. The reader may find him/herself asking, "How do I know that I should reply with this or that specific phrase that's in the book?" And the reader doesn't know, because the book fails to explain things properly.

    Great introduction to the concept of Gaslighting

    The term 'Gaslighting' is common vernacular in today's society. It can be heard on comedy TV shows as well as the nightly news, but most pop culture sources offer few specifics of what the phenomenon is. Dr. Stern coined the term 'Gaslighting' to create a construct to, more easily, define emotional and psychological abuse. There are many books on the subject. I don't recommend you stop with this one, but, perhaps, Dr. Sterns plain language and pioneering efforts make this book a great place to start a journey of understanding.

    Political stuff... really?

    I didn’t get this book to listen about the “gaslighting” of the Trump administration. Just irritated me.

    Gute Erkenntnisse

    Super erklärt. Lohnenswert. Hilfreich. Man könnte es auch mit weniger Worten sagen. Zu viele Fallbeispiele.
