“Inspiring! I love Crushing Fleas in so many ways. As a mother of three girls, I will be giving it to them to read, as I think it’s important to recognize the signs of abuse in order to be able to cut the cord before it happens. Plus, the tools shared are applicable to anyone’s life. ” – Vicki Kenny, Personal Trainer and Sports Nutritionist
“Nager’s instruction for loving oneself is so powerful….”…feel your body relax into love. The love of you.” – Amazon Reader
“This is an honest, straightforward account of recovery from narcissistic abuse told with deep insights, wisdom, heart and humour. It’s an engaging read that makes you fall in love with the author and also her quest to share what she’s learned to help others. She not only shares intimate details of her journey but also loads of expert advice regarding legals and other practical ways that may help anyone climb out of the morass of a spiritual, mental, emotional and financial takeover. This is an important book in the canon of women’s literature regarding emancipation and the fight for freedom and gives voice to an issue that plagues more women than our society would like to admit. Elyssa Nager is a powerful voice for women and justice.” – Stephanie Lightsmith, Author, Creative Alchemy: The Science of Miracles
Crushing Fleas provides a descriptive toolkit to overcome the devastating impacts of emotional abuse. ‘Emotions aren’t happening to you. You choose your emotional state.’ This quote epitomizes the theme of the entire book–take your power back!

“Elyssa’s detailed and concise plan to “exterminate fleas” is an awesome read…..by the end, everyone will be able to identify a flea. But just because you have fleas in your life, that doesn’t mean you know how to de-flea. Well, Elyssa (who I have dubbed Elyssa the Exterminator) maps out a plan for you…..she shows you what aisle the flea bomb is in.
She’ll lead you to the water…..but now it’s up to you to take the first…..sip!
For once in my life, I don’t want to read a sequel….but I don’t think there will be one. This story is closed.
If you even THINK you have fleas, buy this book.
If you don’t have fleas, you might meet one sometime later in your life, buy this book so you don’t bring fleas into your home.
And if you have a flea….crush it. Guts everywhere.”
– Stacey Hughes
