Free Yourself from the Traps of a Narcissistic World

By Daryl Van Tongeren

A practical and philosophical deep dive into humility: how it can build confidence, foster honesty about our strengths and limitations, and help us achieve success

Narcissism is on the rise: It manifests in our friends, partners, coworkers, politicians—and even, from time to time, in ourselves. But a powerful tool can help us defeat it: humility.

Humble is the antidote that will help us look beyond our own desires. Psychologist Daryl Van Tongeren lays out a three-part path to achieving greater humility, which includes learning to accept feedback, letting go of defensive responses, and, ultimately, building stronger relationships. As Van Tongeren shows through his own experience, even the experts fall down sometimes—and anyone can rise to the challenge.

Rooted in groundbreaking research, this book explores how cultivating humility, an often-undervalued character trait, is the key to a life of meaning and purpose.
