Everyday Narcissism unfolds a way to understand why we are the way we are and do what we do in relationships, even if it’s not good for us. Nancy Van Dyken exposes five erroneous myths about a common perception that our needs will be met if we meet the needs of others first. She helps us understand what gives rise to these myths and offers lots of ways to address them, much to our benefit.”–Connie Dawson, coauthor of Growing Up Again

Everyday Narcissism is a spirited book that’s filled with useful insights and self-help suggestions. Nancy Van Dyken turns the growing problem of narcissism around by helping us look at ourselves, rather than judging everyone else. Her Five Myths, Feelings Lists, Needs List, and many easy activities focus the reader on practical steps anyone can take. By making it simple, Van Dyken helps us nurture ourselves while also paying better attention to our relationships.”–Bill Eddy, c coauthor of Splitting

“This little book offers its readers a BIG liberation! Wisely and sensitively crafted, Nancy Van Dyken examines EN―everyday narcissism―in an informed, honest, and nonjudgmental voice. This is a hopeful, positive gem of a book that I could not put down. I, for one, benefitted from its insights and am putting into practice its many lessons.”–Scherrie A. Foster, Professor of Communication, Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College


Narcissism, in all forms, is a belief that the world revolves around us, and that what happens in the world happens because of us. Most of us live with a form of narcissism so deeply embedded that we don’t even know we have it. This “everyday narcissism” (EN) comes from a combination of childhood wounds and powerful myths we were taught as children. Everyday Narcissism helps readers understand how EN manifests in their own lives, and teaches them how to heal it. This awareness provides a foundation for creating greater happiness, more fulfilling relationships, less reactivity, and more meaning.

  • An essential purchase for anyone having difficulty in a relationship, with a partner, coworker, family member, or other loved one.
  • This is the first book for the general reader to specifically address everyday narcissism (EN).
  • Features a Foreword by Anne Katherine, best-selling author of Boundaries and Where to Draw the Line.
