While there were some useful points in this book
on 12 January 2015
While there were some useful points in this book, I felt that it presented the behaviour of nacissists in a blatant way. If narcissists were that obvious we would all spot them a mile off. For example - its says N's say things that reflect a lack of empathy like 'too bad' 'what an idiot' 'whatever' and 'I don't care'. In my experience N's do not say these things, anyone saying these things would instantly be identified as an unpleasant person to be avoided. In reality I think N's come across as good people to the unknowing, and I don't think this point was fully emphasized in the book. As such I think this book is a helpful adjunct to other books on the subject, but not as useful as a main/sole source of information.
