"In Socialcide author Leo J. Battenhausen has put together a compelling examination of the American epidemic of extreme narcissism that has invaded society. Battenhausen's engrossing account of this dangerous trend is thought-provoking and paints a scary picture of the impact of the trend. How dangerous is America's obsession with self-absorption? Perhaps "selfies" are just the latest example of how full of one's self one can get."
