    One thought on “How to Talk to a Narcissist”

    1. As a whole I felt this book was disappointing. The introduction claims the book will help therapists, patients and others who interact with Narcissists to better communicate with them. I found that this book focused more on helping spouses of narcissists (especially spouses with borderline/histrionic personalities) with their own problems rather than the narcissists themselves though. Therapists/councilors who host couples therapy may get something out of this book, and spouses of Narcissists ma [...]

    2. Lachkar describes eight different kinds of narcissists and suggests how each one has their own idiosyncratic nature in terms of specific communication styles. the eight types form chapters: His Majesty the Narcissist, The Pathological Narcissist, The Malignant Narcissist, The Antisocial Narcissist, The Depressive Narcissist, The Obsessive-Compulsive Narcissist, The Passive-Aggressive: The "Poor Me" Victim, The Narcissist the Artist, The Cross-Cultural Narcissist. Her profound insight into the wo [...]

    3. Written primarily as a tool for therapists, this book does not broadly discuss interacting with narcissists in everyday life but in a counselling setting between romantic partners. For each type of narcissist the author discusses "Women who chose to stay with . . ." but not men who choose to stay with. Though the book seems limited in its treatment of the topic, I can't comment on the utility of this book for therapists, but it has very little use for the casual reader.

    4. Not what I was looking for. It is a guide for therapists on how to talk to narcissistst really aimed at the rest of us. Still, some interesting distinctions and discussions of the topic.

    5. DON'T TALK TO A NARCISSIST. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!! (I purchased this book came completely sealed in plastic and a brown wrapper)
