    Our Age and the Real Self

    Masterson may be on to something in the title of this book (as was Lasch). A hundred years from now, 'personality disorders' may be thought of as a cultural artefact, the product of mass delusions. That the book tackles an enormous range of human behaviour under the same clinical heading weakens its usefulness. Still, it is an interesting tour de horizon of personality disorders, the functions of the False Self, and the ways to revive, nourish, sustain, and 're-activate' the dilapidated True Self (rarely successfully - something the book cheerfully omits to mention). Sam Vaknin, author of 'Malignant Self Love - Narcissism Revisited'.
