Publisher's Summary

Many people have heard about the Peter Pan syndrome. The term was coined by Dr. Dan Kiley in the book The Peter Pan Syndrome: Men Who Have Never Grown Up. He also wrote another book terming the women who loved the emotionally immature man as "Wendy", referring to the Peter Pan story and movie in which Wendy falls in love with the boy who can never be who she wants him to be. He is the boy who is incapable of feeling love for another person, and he lives to serve his own sense of self, independence, and needs.
This audiobook seeks to define the traits of the men who may be classified as Peter Pans. We will also cover the harmless types of Peter Pans as well as mention those types who are much more harmful. We will touch on the frustrations that might occur in the interactions between Peter Pans and their friends, partners, and family members. Once we can define a Peter Pan, we can lower our expectations in relating to these types and seek to understand their limitations as we interact with them.
We have all met men who have the Peter Pan syndrome. Many of these men are also narcissistic and self-absorbed simply by the nature of the Peter Pan syndrome. A man who is stuck in his path through life as a boy never matures emotionally. He carries around his childhood sense of himself throughout his life. In many instances, his tastes do not grow or change. The way that he interacts with others does not grow or change. He is still stuck as a 12-year-old boy, or sometimes even younger, in his emotional development.

too short

Interesting fusion of ideas, as a premise, but nothing offered about how to manage, cope, transform. Nothing about narcissism is touched upon. Very short experience.

Inadequate

This is not a book. The topic is discussed in a superficial manner and lacks any kind of depth! Such a dissappointment! No real development of ideas.

The Basics

If you know anything about this subject then this book is not for you. A general overview is given, it’s common knowledge and easily available online. I dare say the author has not lived with this type of person.
