Chi non ha mai avuto a che fare con un narcisista? Una di quelle persone con cui è incredibilmente difficile lavorare e vivere. Che è bravissima nel manipolare, controllare e umiliare il prossimo: colleghi, consorti, figli, amici e famigliari. Purtroppo spesso è estremamente difficile liberarsene e, in certe situazioni, addirittura impossibile. Ma difendersi si può. E in questo libro, il dottor Les Carter, un esperto in materia, ci spiega come fare. Prima di tutto, aiutandoci a riconoscere i narcisisti nella nostra vita. Ci insegna anche che il narcisismo è un disturbo grave della personalità, i cui effetti sugli altri possono essere devastanti: «Mantenendo l'attenzione concentrata su di sé, il desiderio tipico dei narcisisti di manipolare e controllare gli altri ai propri fini può suscitare nelle persone che li circondano rabbia, dolore, disillusione, confusione, ingiusto senso di colpa, tensione, paura e insicurezza.» E infine, spiegandoci come assumere i comportamenti e le difese più efficaci per ridurre il loro impatto su di noi e, quindi, vivere meglio.
