A mental health expert sheds light on “gaslighting”–the manipulative technique used by sociopaths, narcissists, and others–offering practical strategies to cope and break free.

He’s the charmer — the witty, confident, but overly controlling date. She’s the woman on your team who always manages to take credit for your good work. He’s the neighbor who swears you’ve been putting your garbage into his trash cans, the politician who can never admit to a mistake. Gaslighters are master controllers and manipulators, often challenging your very sense of reality. Whether it’s a spouse, parent, coworker, or friend, gaslighters distort the truth — by lying, withholding, triangulation, and more — making their victims question their own reality and sanity. Dr. Stephanie Sarkis delves into this hidden manipulation technique, covering gaslighting in every life scenario, sharing:

  • Why gaslighters seem so “normal” at first
  • Warning signs and examples
  • Gaslighter “red flags” on a first date
  • Practical strategies for coping
  • How to coparent with a gaslighter
  • How to protect yourself from a gaslighter at work
  • How to walk away and rebuild your life


With clear-eyed wisdom and empathy, Dr. Sarkis not only helps you determine if you are being victimized by a gaslighter — she gives you the tools to break free and heal.

  • "A succinct, useful self-help guide to responding to an all-too-common but under-discussed personality type."
    Publishers Weekly
  • "Sarkis clearly knows her material inside and out... this book will bring gaslighting victims and survivors out of the darkness and into the light, helping them heal"
    New York Journal of Books
  • "A fascinating and necessary study of rampant gaslighting and how to steer clear of being a victim."
    Library Journal (starred review)
