Why Is It Always About You? The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism


Product Description

Published USA, 2003
The narcissist may be intimidating, mesmerizing, even larger-than-life, but beneath the bombast or the charm is an emotional cripple with the moral development of a toddler.

The characteristic ways that the narcissist thinks and behaves is described as the Seven Deadly Sins. In addition to the familiar arrogance and magical thinking traits are the unhealthy narcissistic characteristics of poor interpersonal boundaries, emotional shallowness and exploitiveness. Sandy Hotchkiss offers four survival strategies for defending yourself against the damage that narcissists can do. And because narcissists see themselves as 'special people' she explores in greater depth those particular situations in which narcissism can be especially troubling: with adolescents and in love relationships, for example. This book is a wide-ranging and thought-provoking essay on the topic.
