Narcissism is a belief that the world revolves around us, and that what happens in the world happens because of us. Most of us live with a form of narcissism so common and so deeply embedded that we don't even know we have it. This "everyday narcissism" (EN) comes from a combination of childhood wounds and powerful myths we were taught as children. Everyday Narcissism helps listeners understand how EN manifests in their own lives, and teaches them how to heal it. It also helps listeners learn to recognize EN in others and respond in healthy ways. This awareness provides a foundation for creating greater happiness, more fulfilling relationships, less reactivity, and more meaning.

Started off well - first half covers the definitions, how to recognise, etc. The second half purports to give concrete suggestion, but it does not deliver. One was "be open to letting people's bumper-stickers resonate". Absolute garbage.
Audible has some terrible narrators, but this is one of the worst. Barely tolerable if you speed it up to 1.05-1.10 Insists on doing terrible voices for the quotes, which is very distracting.
