Review by: Bethany Ebert on May 23, 2016 :
The influence of narcissism on today's pop culture has warped the way people interact. The author's commentary was smart and relevant. It caused me to think about the way I treat other people. Even as I criticize vapid, self-aware narcissism, I'm sure I still act that way out of a desire for validation. Like they say, "everybody wants to be special." If I was a college professor, I'd have my students read this book. It provides a good lesson in humility.
