However, I felt that the book was limited in several ways. First, it posits a continuum of narcissistic patterns which strikes me as too simplistic to account for the various ways in which narcissism recreates itself in the children of narcissists. Second, there was a great deal of attention paid to a particular clinical approach which was insufficiently explicated (that is, having to stop and figure out what he must mean when he described various bio-energetic therapy activities distracted me from the main point of what I was reading). Finally, the writing was somewhat wooden and often drew my attention away from the subject at hand.
On the whole, this was a valuable book. It just seemed that the author *almost* wrote a better book, and it's that better book that I really wanted to read.
