Walking With Narcissists is a work of non-fiction presented as a series of interesting interviews, composed and compiled by author Kenny Lea. As the title suggests, the work concentrates on the quality of narcissism, especially in its clinical presentation through the diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and explores how we all have some of these qualities within us. The work contains ten interviews with self-described narcissists from different walks of life, but also goes deeper into the nature of being in a relationship with, or as, a narcissist, and when things can become unhealthy and/or dangerous to one or both parties.

Author Kenny Lea gives a lot of their own personality, realism, and honesty to this work, taking on the exploratory role of self-discovery, as well as conducting the many interesting interviews within the text. In terms of organization and formatting, I enjoyed the initial discussion portion and I felt that the ideas built up well as it went along, setting up the conversation nicely before we could dive into the interview portion of the work. The questions posed were insightful and the answers were intriguing and surprisingly candid, which really does open up the world of these interesting and sometimes dangerous personality traits for those who may have trouble recognizing them, whether in themselves or others. All in all, Walking With Narcissists shines a light on a lesser-discussed topic with strong ramifications for healthy relationships of all kinds, and I would certainly recommend it for anyone who wishes to know more about NPD.
