Literature on Narcissism

Postby ZombieZ » Sat Mar 03, 2018 9:42 pm

What are the best/ most respected books on NPD I can read? Something I don’t need a psychology degree to read.

In addition, the work of scholars like Masterson, Kohut, and Kernberg is great! Definitely dense though and probably not the best for people who aren't well versed in psychology.

Some people like Sam Vaknin (Malignant Self Love) and Wendy Behary (Disarming the Narcissist). I wouldn't really recommend for or against either of those though.

I am familiar with Sam Vaknin I’ve watched some of his YouTube videos but haven’t read his book yet. I’m sure I will probably go overboard with the subject like I do everything else but those two you recommended seem to be exactly what I’m looking for.
