The first part is a good, basic introduction to the concepts and types of people who are to different degree narcissist. After that it's chapter after chapter of ideas presented as facts, a very black and white view of situations and the last chapters are dated and judgmental in a way. Not what I expected after a good beginning. Still, the basic notions, concepts are clearly defined, it's their applications that goes a bit overboard. Maybe it's the passing of time (10 years) and the presentation and discourse did not survive the test of time. For me anyway.
