Narcissism: Behind the Mask (Inglese) Copertina rigida – 25 nov 2010
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 master's and doctoral degrees in management, although he has wide-ranging experience in major manufacturing industries, and in the early 1980s he worked in Brazil and France in engineering. 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 and lives in Mickleover.

I found it helpful that the author used the term "codependent" rather than the more pejorative "minion", "enabler", "co-narcissist", and "reverse narcissist" that are frequently deployed. (The last thing someone who is suffering or has suffered due to a narcissist needs to hear is that they're a "co-narcissist" as it -- albeit unintentionally -- adds to the feelings of guilt, shame, and confusion they already endure as part of the abuse.) The more neutral "codependent" term and the author's explanation of what causes codependency makes it easier to understand and accept that one's own experiences and psychological wounds cause him or her to be more susceptible to narcissistic control. Acknowledging one's own acquiescence and submission to the sick relationship is one of the steps needed to grow healthier and move past it, but there are many stages one must pass through before being ready to confront this. It is not an easy undertaking. As David Thomas affirms, it takes courage -- the courage to confront our own truths as well as the truths of others.
While I wouldn't recommend it as a stand-alone source about narcissism, this is a worthwhile read if you are interested in this topic.
Although I have not yet finished, it doesn't seem to provide ways to deal with narcissists. It just seems to say you can't beat them and will lose.
