“Jean Twenge has a knack for chronicling the obsession that many Americans have with, well, themselves.”
“In 2006, the psychology professor at San Diego State University wrote a highly informed book on what she called “Generation Me” – Americans in their teens, 20s and 30s who display very healthy levels of self-esteem even if they haven’t accomplished much to earn it.”
“Now, with fellow psychologist W. Keith Campbell, Twenge has co-authored a new and timely book: ‘The Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement.’”
“Twenge thinks the entitlement mentality might have helped cause America’s economic crisis.”
