Reviews and Endorsements

A Study of Malignant Narcissism is an essential contribution to the growing literature on dangerous personalities and the destruction they cause. Courageous, searingly honest, and deeply moving … A rare combination of compelling biography and crucial work of science, this is essential reading for our disordered times. An invaluable work of wisdom and experience.’ - Ian Hughes, Senior Research Fellow, MaREI Centre at University College Cork, Ireland.

‘This fine book offers a marvellous combination of often hair-raising raw experience with thoughtful, illuminating reflection and insightful commentary. Dr Wood throws much needed light on character formation and function, defensive deformation of personality, … and resilience. This is a courageous, timely, well written, important book.’ - Dr Brent Willock, Founding President of the Toronto Institute for Contemporary Analysis, Canada.

‘With superb prose, Dr. Wood provides a scholarly and informative description of the characteristics and behaviors of individuals with narcissistic personalities … For anyone wanting to learn about psychopathy and malignant narcissism, and how this knowledge might apply to autocratic leaders, this is the book to read.’ - Graeme J. Taylor, MD, FRCPC, Psychoanalytic Fellow of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis and Dynamic Psychiatry and Professor University of Toronto, Canada.
