Summary Note Anne Manne's "The life of I" opens with a compelling analysis of the role of narcissism in Anders Breivik's murderous rampage in Norway. Far from being the act of an isolated madman, Breivik's Manifesto shows how deeply he was a man of our time. But what kind of parenting, and what kind of culture, creates a Breivik? Written with the pace of a psychological mystery story, Manne's book is lively and engaging, using many examples from popular culture. Yet it is a scholarly work, making accessible to the general reader exciting new work in neuroscience, attachment research and psychoanalysis which provide insight into narcissism and how it develops.
