Reviews

"[This] well-researched and entertaining study of the syndrome du jour pulls in figures as varied as Lance Armstrong, Kim Kardashian, and Steve Jobs. It also names 'exploitativeness' and 'entitlement' as two of the narcissist's calling cards."
--Slate

"Narcissists can be captivating people, and The Narcissist Next Door is a captivating book: meticulously researched, written with verve, and spiced with irresistible examples from the headlines and everyday life."
--Steven Pinker "We are surrounded by narcissists and from afar, they are often easy to like. They are famous entertainers, successful business people and politicians. The charm wears off quickly, though, if they get too close--your neighbors, friends or your own family. The brilliant Jeffrey Kluger, one of our country's most admired science writers, has written a book that taught me a great deal, made me laugh out loud on a quiet airplane ride, and forced me to be introspective about myself and the people I love. Kluger gives a lot of himself in this book, deftly weaving cutting-edge science with poignant personal stories that are astonishingly candid, and at times very familiar. At the risk of sounding...well, narcissistic, I of course wondered if I fit any of the criteria. Chances are you are wondering the same thing. So open the book and find out."
--Dr. Sanjay Gupta

"This thoroughly engrossing book contains a plethora of information...anyone interested in psychology will find it an invaluable resource."
--Library Journal (starred review) "Informative and engaging, Kluger's account provides some effective tools for dealing with potential narcissists."
--Publishers Weekly
