Why some men cannot love, why we still love them, and what we can do about it.
What do you do if you are in love with an emotional vampire? Can he actually control his behaviour? Why does he behave the way he does?
Since the ancient Greeks told the story of Narcissus, we have recognised that some people are simply self-obsessed. But there is now evidence to suggest that narcissism is shaping our times, and most of all, our relationships.
Today narcissism is a quality that is being continually reinforced by our celebrity-obsessed, high achievement, sell-yourself culture. It is increasingly being recognised as a behavioural disorder (Narcissistic Personality Disorder), which clinics such as the Priory claiming 16% of their patients have this disorder. With real-life case studies and questionnaires, 'All About Me' will reveal whether you are in love with a born narcissist.
In this original and compelling book, Simon Crompton explores what this means for our relationships today, and is guaranteed to make you think about yourself and your partner in an entirely new light.
