Hi Everyone... I'm not very active on this site very much anymore and when I participate... it's usually in the divorce/separation forum.

Anyway, I watched a documentary last night in which the story involved a lot of gaslighting and I realized that I am still not fully healed (or ever close) from the gaslighting that was inflicted upon me during my marriage and subsequent divorce.

I seem to recall that there is a really good book on gaslighting that folks recommend... and I was wondering if you could share that recommendation with me.

Thanks!

In Sheeps Clothing by George Simon. It's about manipulation of all sorts, but as I was reading it, so many things fell into place for me.

Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest o' the world
I wanna be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls, they wanna have fun....

Maybe but probably not?

If it is... that's good news for me because I already have that book. Maybe I'll start by re-reading that...
