Vain, egotistic & self-obsessed, have you ever felt like someone in your life, or perhaps even yourself, shows these characteristics a little too often to ignore?

Join Sam Vaknin, a narcissist and professor of psychology who dedicated his life to understanding and educating people on this personality disorder.

When he put up the first website on narcissism in 1997, no one heard of of the term. Today, everyone and his dog is an expert on narcissism. The amount of misinformation often disseminated by narcissists masquerading as professional victims is breathtaking.

What is pathological narcissism? Is it a mental health disorder - or an adaptation to our anomic, sick, and, yes, narcissistic civilization? Where is the demarcation between assertiveness, self-confidence, and self-esteem - and grandiose fantasies? Is leadership enhanced by narcissism - or diminished by it? Should we encourage our children to be more narcissistic? How are narcissists made?
