Product description

Product Description

Would you fall in love with someone who is arrogant, exhibitionistic, vain, manipulative, and greedy for admiration? Would you work under a boss who flies into uncontrollable rages, assassinates the character of anyone who gets in his way, and then projects his own paranoia on to you?

Sounds like a no-brainer…but many of us actually do! That makes some of us codependents and them power-hungry narcissists. As they trample over us in their quest for self-aggrandisement and we find ourselves dragged into an unhealthy parasitic relationship with them, our lives can become utterly miserable and feel out of control.

This book shines a light on the reasons why narcissists and codependents are like they are, on the pain and suffering the narcissists inflict on codependents, and the pain and suffering they both inflict on others around them. Importantly, it shows how both narcissists and codependents can move towards winning back control and regaining happiness in their lives.

And if you think no one could be so unremittingly egotistical, just hark back to the collapse of Enron in 2001 and that of RBS in 2009 — both of these spectacular crashes with worldwide reverberations were brought about by self-seeking CEOs whose narcissistic arrogance is typical of the behaviour of the narcissists dealt with in these pages.

--- David Thomas grew up in Derbyshire, where he still lives and works as a company director and consultant. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute and holds masters and doctoral degrees in management, although he has wide-ranging experience in industry at all levels, and in the early 1980s he lived and worked in Brazil and France. His research interests are in managerial psychology, narcissistic behaviour, and the philosophy of happiness. Over many years he has researched the behaviour of CEOs and senior managers, as well as of office staff and shop-floor workers from a variety of walks of life. He is married with two children.
