Summary

When The Culture of Narcissism was first published, it was clear that Christopher Lasch had identified something important: what was happening to American society in the wake of the decline of the family over the last century. The book quickly became a best seller. This edition includes a new afterword, "The Culture of Narcissism Revisited."

Good Social Commentary

I listened to this book on recomnendation and I throughly enjoyed the first two-thirds of the book. The last part for me was marred by heavy Freudian explanations. Nevertheless there is still enough in the book to reflect on and makes a good companion to Neil Postman's 'Amusing Ourselves to Death'
