User reviews about the book
When did I become the self absorbed one?
The book claims to help with dealing with a self absorbed parent but seems to spend more energy on convincing the reader that s/he is also narcissistic and self-absorbed and full of excel ides on how to deal with that within themselves. Some readers who have not learned unhealthy narcissism from their parents might find later chapters presumptuous and maybe even a waste of time. I understand that many will need help with this, but less than I hoped is spent on learning how to improve the relationship with the parent. I felt a lot of the second half of the book should have been read by my mother, not me.
