Book Review - How To Kill A Narcissist

How To Kill A Narcissist

Debunking The Myth of Narcissism and Recovering From Narcissistic Abuse
By: J. H. Simon

Book Reivew

I don't really like the title to this book, I don't usually like self-published books, and the first line to the first chapter caused me to roll my eyes. Aside from that, JH Simon has written a pretty helpful book on narcissism. I wish it were more academic and that he had cited sources. Yet, maybe the fact that he didn't makes the book more accessible to some folks who won't read more academic sounding/feeling books.

I appreciate how Simon gives clear descriptions and then offers helpful solutions at the end of the book. Oh, and there was a random John Piper quote at the beginning of a chapter. Not what I was expecting. It was a good quote, and I value John Piper, it is just not what you would expect in a secular book on narcissism. Speaking of this book being secular, I write/think from a Christian world view. As is common with a secular book, there are many lines you will read and disagree with. Yet, much of this book serves as a helpful diagnostic when people are trying to make sense of toxic people in their lives.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
