    The best and worst aspect of this book is that it is written by someone suffering from Narcissistic Personality Disorder or NPD. As a result, while it is honest and illuminating, the writing is unnecessarily bombastic, repetitive with pages devoted to Sam's self-proclaimed achievements. This book itself, its convoluted organization, its pages dedicated to the author's resume, its choice of jargon and big words sheds more light into what NPD is all about than the content of the writing. An interesting experience altogether. This book allows me to enter the world of an NPD sufferer in more ways than one,

    Sam did a magnificent job writing Malignant Self Love. To be honest the pages will mean very little to you: if you have never encountered such a personality. When you have been close to a NPD and have been touched by it. The are more than words and observations of a personality/behaviors. I recommend this book to everyone. There are more than one type of NPD and they can be quite successful. I do recommend this book to all especially late teens it can only do them good to learn of constructive behavior before they take on careers, family's, and a significant other. Once your finished reading you have to fill in the holes with healthy responses, caring touches, non self motivated motives, guiding protective actions. I am certain that the Narcissist will read it and still try to find ways to be entitled to their goals. For the people around them there is a way out. Distance, sad to say in many cases it is the only way to break the cycle. Sam has done a lot of work, putting to pen, the difficult. It will always sit on my shelf.

    This text, as a book, is not nearly as compelling in its structure as it is in its contents. That said, as a psychological primer, a study of certain personality types, it has a lot to add and some very interesting views. Personally, I find the YouTube videos by Vaknin to be fascinating and would recommend watching them if this interests you. The videos add a layer of interpretive sensitivity that the book sometimes misses representing. If women are attracted to narcissists and Vaknin offers help with understanding their post-idealization experience, their devaluations, despite that it's likely Vaknin is solely after attaining narcissistic supply with either this book or those videos, I say, good for him. Explaining how psychosis or narcissism works IS community service to those average, everyday folks who haven't the slightest idea why or how people could love them and then instantly discard them. This is post-betrayal reading for anyone who needs it--and quite valid for that endeavor. I'm going to give this 4 stars not because the book is crafted like a work of literature--but because, right on, Sam Vaknin! Help people for your NS! If narcissists must pander for praise one way or the other, at least it is amply deserved when they reveal themselves so clearly and aid in interpretive arts for other human beings navigating their lives. There are far worse things a narcissist could do with his time. In fact, I think I'll give this book five stars for that reason. Five stars, Sam. Good work revealing motivations for cruelty--and how they have more to do with the narcissist than the victim. Your work, on the whole, has aided my understanding. And I'm feeling generous today. ;)

    Wow, did this book hit a nerve! This is the climate of my youth, although I didn't recognize it until much later. Now I'm finding that recovering from a childhood with the parent(s) described in this book is not as easy as one might think. I keep discovering sides of myself that I never really knew how to explain. Now it all makes sense! It doesn't solve the problem, but it makes sense!

    While this lengthy (600-odd pages) and expensive (this paperback retailed for around fifty bucks, and that was ten years ago) tome contains some interesting and useful info, it is buried in a book that is a pretty tough slog (due to issues of format and editing, rather than content). Vaknin writes a blog, from which much of this is compiled (I first heard about this book, in fact, on the internet, where Vaknin has a disturbingly vociferous cult). It's not actually a coherently written book, but a slapped-together compilation of internet pieces, and as a result it is often mind-numbingly repetitive and badly in need of an editor. Its author claims to be a narcissist himself and given his propensity to wallow in purple prose (kind of the equivalent of being in love with the sound of your own voice), I'm willing to believe it. At the bottom of it, much of this book is an ongoing series of sometimes seemingly random, sometimes self-contradictory, sometimes pretentious thoughts, theories and musings on narcissism. In spite of these considerable flaws, it does contain some interesting and thought-provoking content. However, for anyone with an interest in the subject of narcissism, I would definitely recommend the far more coherent Why Is It Always About You? by Sandy Hotchkiss, over this one.


  6. Vanessa Vanessa says:

    definitely illuminating and disconcerting...in order to heal and move on i would recommend more constructive and positive reads, like The Wizard of Oz and Other Narcissists, The Road Less Traveled, and Eckhart Tolle's works, and a lot of self-love.


  7. Margaret Margaret says:

    The unique aspect about this book is that it is written by someone with Narcissism. There are quite a few books about Narcissism but this one really helps you understand this disorder inside and out, probably because it is written by someone who experiences it personally. If you are involved with people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, this is a must-read to be able to get into their mind and know how to think. Especially if you do not have NPD, this is a must read because you will get hurt since these folks easily manipulate you. If you are highly trusting, then please DO read this book sa you are their number 1 target. THe book is written in a very unconventional way. It is not that easy to get through...and it's pretty intense. But it is very very good and I have referred to it as a resource numerous times over the years.

    When dealing with a narcissist never think in a human way because he is not
    Every one has a normal range of self confident but when it is too high it will be a malignant narcissist.
    Relationship with a narcissist is toxic, and you should run away from him.
    A narcissist has a revenge in his heart and hates every body even him self
    This is why he acts so weird, and when he wants something he will be too sweet until take it then will get rid of you if he feel you are not as a supply for him
    He can't find the pleasure in the live but only through insult and torture people wither physically or usually psychology way.
    To cope with narcissist you should to be a Masochist.


  9. Melissa Jones Melissa Jones says:

    I considered this book a self-help for me. I found myself in a work-situation, or one might say culture, that I often would refer to as a Narcissistic Camp This book helped me understand the pathological thinking of the brutality I was undergoing. My mind did not think in that capacity, so reading this aided me to self-defense. Highly recommended for anyone in a narcissistic situation.

    What a disturbed person this author is. Steer clear. There are other books about this subject that are easier to read and much better for you.
