Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From an award-winning senior writer atand#160;Time, an eye-opening exploration of narcissism, how to recognize it, and how to handle it.and#160;

The odds are good that you know a narcissistand#151;probably a lot of them. The odds are also good that they are intelligent, confident, and articulateand#151;the center of attention. They make you laugh and they make you think. The odds are also that this spell didnand#8217;t last.

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 itand#8217;s too late.

As aand#160;Time writer and science editor, Kluger knows how to take scienceand#8217;s new ideas and transform them into smart, accessible insights. Highly readable and deeply engaging, this book helps us understand narcissism and narcissists more fully.and#160;

Book News Annotation:

Beginning with anecdotes about growing up with three brothers, Kluger, a Time magazine editor and writer, examines the special bond of siblings. In a book developed from his stories in 2006 and 2007 on burgeoning research on siblings, Kluger explores this complex relationship, drawing on animal and human studies, and examples of siblings in famous families. He also discusses the effects of birth order, parental divorce and remarriage, brother- sister relationships on relations with the opposite sex, and being sibling-less or having a twin.

Synopsis:

A senior writer at Time magazine explores what scientists and researchers are discovering about sibling bonds, the longest- lasting relationships we have in our lives.

Nobody affects us as deeply as our brothers and sisters-not parents, not children, not friends. From the time we-and they-are born, our siblings are our collaborators and co-conspirators, our role models and cautionary tales. They teach us how to resolve conflicts and how not to, how to conduct friendships and when to walk away. Our siblings are the only people we know who truly qualify as partners for life.

In this groundbreaking book, renowned science writer Jeffrey Kluger explores the complex world of siblings in a way that is equal parts science, psychology, sociology, and memoir. Based heavily on new and emerging research, The Sibling Effect examines birth order, twin studies, genetic encoding of behavioral traits, emotional disorders and their effects on-and effects from-sibling relationships, and much more.

With his signature insight and humor, Kluger takes big ideas about siblings and turns them into smart, accessible writing that will help anyone understand the importance of siblings in our lives.
