Narcissists are everywhere – it’s time to break their charming spell

Are you overshadowed by the narcissists in your life? Are inflated egos with a constant need to brag leaving you sapped? Or, maybe you’re concerned that you could be a narcissist.

In this thought-provoking, sanity-saving book, Thomas Erikson shares what makes narcissists tick and how to tackle their egocentric objectives head-on. Applying the behavioural model made famous in Surrounded by Idiots, Erikson provides effective hacks to not only understand but outwit the narcissists around you.

Engaging and practical, Surrounded by Narcissists will help free you from self-centred agendas so you can pursue a lighter, more fulfilling, and successful life.


Surrounded by Narcissists is the fifth book by Thomas Erikson following the global success with Surrounded by Idiots, Surrounded by Psychopaths Surrounded by Bad Bosses & Surrounded by Setback.
