Media & Professional Reviews

  • David N. Bolocofsky, Family Law Attorney  "...I just received and read your latest book – it was truly outstanding. I wish the book had been written a long time ago, as it is something which I would have encouraged most of my clients to read. You have done an excellent job of combining theory with practical suggestions and make it alive and meaningful through anecdotes. Frankly, it is relevant not just to people who have narcissists in their lives, but to people going through difficult relationship breakdowns, as it is not uncommon for a significant subset of people in such circumstances to exhibit behaviors akin to narcissism. I am going to recommend that several of my former clients get a copy, as it is still pertinent to their post-decree issues. Great job!!!" - March 14, 2016

Media & Professional Reviews

“Reflect on your pain, and then relish in your hope: that is the message I took away from Dr. Karyl McBride’s Will I Ever Be Good Enough? The clinical wisdom imparted by a trained marriage and family therapist, who herself is the daughter of a narcissistic mother, comes across with such richness and authenticity that this book should be on every family therapist’s shelf. It is written for the daughters, not for clinicians per se; however, both the daughters and their mental health professionals can benefit from the information presented in this volume.  Practical, insightful and full of compassion, it is likely to help many women in ways that few other resources are able to do. Daughters of mothers with borderline, antisocial, and histrionic traits are likely to benefit from its caring, empathy, and practicality just as much as daughters of narcissistic mothers.  This book is a gem…it truly helps the reader to reflect on her pain, as well as relish in the hope that she can end the legacy of narcissism.”

- Farrah M. Hughes, PhD., for The Family Psychologist Bulletin of the Society for Family Psychology, division (43), The American Psychological Association

“McBride presents specific steps toward recovery that daughters of any age can use as they grieve for the love and support they didn’t receive. [McBride] provides parenting tips as well as advice for maintaining healthy love relationships and friendships.  An excellent bibliography rounds out this revealing book that ends on a hopeful and pragmatic note.”
