Editorial Reviews

Larry Bugen
“Michael DeVine has done it! The challenges of a science/practitioner model have been one of the most hotly debated topics in psychology for decades—i.e. the rigors of academic science vs. the practice of psychology. Yet, in Failure to Launch, DeVine takes us on a journey to understand narcissism today by incorporating both the science and practice of psychology.

Through DeVine’s honest and lucid writing style, he integrates counseling theory, family systems theory, psychiatry, and cutting edge neurological research. With ease, he guides us to an understanding of how his generation bridges the ‘Baby Boomers’ and the ‘Millenials.’ He writes with passion and verve. The case examples are wonderfully clear examples of real life happening all around us. This is a book for everyday people and those of us honored and privileged enough to work with narcissism as it is seen today through the eyes of a brilliant young mind—a mind willing to mirror the truth back to us, even when we prefer not to see it. This book is a must read for any professional with ‘stuck’ individuals, as well as their families who often unwittingly contribute to the ‘failure to launch.’”

Roger L. Johnson
“The topic of dependent adult children is one that needs to be addressed. Clinicians who work with the young adult population have long been forecasting this generational issue of a 'failure to launch.' Thus, it is no surprise that Michael's work is filling a need for clinicians at just the right time.

Michael has done his research. While this book looks at the sociological dynamics of the trend of overly dependent adult children, Michael also provides concrete, practical ways in which clinicians can address this problem. For this reason and many more, I strongly recommend Michael Devine's Failure to Launch.”
