Just Arrived

For those of you who enjoy reading from our nonfiction collection, here are some of the most recent additions we hope you'll enjoy.

  • If you are interested in personality and interpersonal relations, you might try The Narcissist Next Door by Jeffrey Kluger.

    "Narcissists are everywhere. There are millions of them in the United States alone: entertainers, politicians, business people, your neighbors. Recognizing and understanding them is crucial to your not being overtaken by them, says Jeffrey Kluger, in his provocative new book about this insidious disorder. With insight and wit, Kluger frames the surprising new research on narcissism and explains the complex, exasperating personality disorder. He reveals how narcissism and narcissists affect our lives at work and at home, on the road, and in the halls of government; what to do when we encounter narcissism; and how to neutralize its effects before it's too late."
