Narcissism - an inflated view of the self - is everywhere. Public figures say it's what makes them stray from their wives. Parents teach it by dressing children in T-shirts that say "Princess". Teenagers and young adults hone it on Facebook, and celebrity newsmakers have elevated it to an art form. And it's what's making people depressed, lonely, and buried under piles of debt. Dr. Jean M. Twenge focuses on the pernicious spread of narcissism in today's culture, which has repercussions for every age group and class. Dr. Twenge joins forces with Dr. W. Keith Campbell, a nationally recognized expert on narcissism, to explore this new plague. Together, they provide an eye-opening exposition of the alarming rise of narcissism and its catastrophic effects at every level of society.
"Filled with important, disturbing research detailing the alarming cultural spread of narcissism today." ---Karyl McBride, Ph.D., author of Will I Ever Be Good Enough?

An Outstanding Piece of Work, Highly Reccomended
High praise, low standards and low expectations do not create a person who can compete and thrive in the real world.This book really connects the dots and explains why so many of our kids feel entitled, are rude and cannot function in a competitive society i.e. in the real world. Their self esteem is off the charts and their ability to function and compete just does not support their high self esteem.
In life there are winners and losers, the winners generally work really hard and demand more of themselves and understand commitment, discipline and hard work and the only things that ensure success in the long run.
Life is not like a kid's sports game; Not everyone get's a trophy just for showing up. As Thomas Edison said, genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration. Unfortunately many of us have forgotten this truth.
The books also gives some very good pointers for dealing with narcissism and if we do not deal with it there will be significant consequences for us as a country.Cannot recommend highly enough
