Let me just start off by saying that I love Dr. Drew. I think that he is such a an empathetic doctor and so dedicated. I really liked this book, but about halfway through it was repetitive information about addiciton, celebrities, and narcissism. However, I did learn a lot about what exactly narcissism is and Dr. Drew and his coauthor believe that celebrities don't become narcissists, they believe narcissists strive to be celebrities. He supports this thesis through many specific examples using of current celebrity behavior. It was interesting to see their behaviors (ie, Brittany Spears crotch shots) analyzed in a new way and it made sense. At the end of the book you can take a narsissism quiz and see how you score. There are also a few celebrity's scores.
