In 2007, my first book was published – a book about narcissistic personalities, which embraced the cultural, scientific and psychological. Entitled "All About Me: loving a narcissist", it incorporated personal accounts of living with and being a narcissistic personality, with analysis of exactly why people become narcissistic and the forces encouraging narcissism in our society.

The agony aunt Bel Mooney wrote in the Daily Mail: "All About Me by Simon Crompton (Collins, £8.99) is an entertainingly intelligent read which raises serious questions about the kind of people we identify as "me-centred" narcissists." She drew attention to the checklists in the book, and recommended the chapter on what creates a narcissist.

On the right, you'll find a link into two articles I wrote for The Times based on the book. If you want to order the book, go to Amazon.
