Narcissism by Alexander Lowen
People of the Lie by Scott Peck

There are lots of books though ...

And also lots of stuff on the internet ...

But I would not let him know about your research. I would not share your knowledge with him, if that is indeed what you find. They can "turn" it against you in their struggle for power. Keep it to yourself. And take the action you need to.

Films. So many. The Talented Mr Ripley? Gaslight?

He made me depressed with his behavior. I lost my common sense and my ability to recognize what is an issue and what is not. He will go into a fit of rage over nothing, over and over again, i never know what is going to trigger him. It can be the smallest of things like i listened to a song while he "wanted my 100% attention" or i laughed on someone else jokes etc. Trying to understand this behavior and trying to save my sanity i read about narcissism and he fits every aspect of it. Now i have to educate myself more, it gives me strength and helps me find my normal self. Yes i wont tell him anything about it. Thank you for the reply flowers
