In I'm Still Standing, Mel Carnegie vividly recounts how she has fought adversity since childhood, beginning with the death of her father when she was just four years old and culminating with the discovery that her husband of ten years was in fact a charming, ruthless sociopath.

Sociopaths, or psychopaths as they are also known, have no conscience, no empathy, no remorse. And there is no easy way to tell them apart from other people. They look normal and they sound normal. Typically, they will be charming, charismatic and the life and soul of the party. But underneath the mask they are ruthless predators who leave chaos and destruction behind them - while they lock on to their next willing target.

When Mel discovered the truth about the man she called her soulmate, she drew on all her life experiences and her skills as a motivational trainer to make sense of the situation and fight her way back. Here she shares her journey with candid and often brutal honesty in the hope that she can help others recognise and escape the clutches of emotional abuse.

This is her heart-rending and ultimately inspirational story.
