From an award-winning senior writer at Time comes this eye-opening exploration of narcissism, how to recognize
it, and how to handle it.
The odds are good that you know a narcissist—probably a lot
of them. The odds are also good that they are intelligent, confident, and articulate—the
center of attention. They make you laugh and they make you think. The odds are
also that this spell didn’t last.
Narcissists are everywhere. There are millions of them in
the United States alone: entertainers, politicians, business people, your
neighbors. Recognizing and understanding them is crucial to your not being
overtaken by them, says Jeffrey Kluger, in his provocative new book about this
With insight and wit, Kluger frames the surprising new
research on narcissism and explains the complex, exasperating personality
disorder. He reveals how narcissism and narcissists affect our lives at work
and at home, on the road, and in the halls of government; what to do when we
encounter narcissism; and how to neutralize its effects before it’s too late.
As a Time writer
and science editor, Kluger knows how to take science’s new ideas and transform
them into smart, accessible insights. Deeply engaging, this book helps us
understand narcissism and narcissists more fully. Download and start listening now!
