Read full description of the books:
A little .. too Freudian.. I started to read this book because I wanted to understand more about people who suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder, since my former boss clearly is a textbook example of one.
In this book, Dr. Lowen has opened my eyes to some of the reasons to how a person becomes overly narcissistic. However, I still cannot stifle my profound annoyance with this boss! I can imagine her childhood, upbringing, and perhaps even understand the key point of "Denial of Feeling". Unfortunately, the understanding alone does not give me solace to the hurtful feelings I've suffered over the year, working for a boss with NPD.
His method, the Bioenergetic Analysis, seems to be very difficult to go through, especially for people suffering from different levels of NPD. Lying on the bed, kicking and yelling "NO!" I can imagine it will take many sessions just to bring a patient comfortable enough to be able to do that with real conviction.
Nonetheless, this book is a very informative and interesting read. I haven't been able to put it down. I'd recommend to anyone interested in this subject. It's a quick read too.

Read information about the authorThe story of Alexander Lowen's life is a story of how he honored the body and healed his mind-body split. It is also the story of how, along the way, he helped mankind.
During his lifetime, Alexander Lowen earned four college degrees: his Bachelor of Science; his Bachelor of Law (L.L.B); his Doctor of Sciences of Law (J.S.D.); and his medical Degree (M.D.). He developed Wilhelm Reich's beliefs into Bioenergetic Analysis and created a large and viable organization, the International Institute for Bioenergetic Analysis (IIBA) to sustain and promote his therapeutic approach. The IIBA now has over 1500 members and 54 training institutes worldwide. Bioenergetic Analysis is now practiced not only in the United States, but also in Canada, Europe, Latin America, Israel, New Zealand, Australia, Japan and other countries.
Dr. Lowen has authored 14 books (translated to as many as eight different languages, collectively) as well as numerous articles and other professional publications. He also has presented his ideas in untold numbers of interviews, on video and audio tapes, and lectures worldwide. The establishment of the Journal for Bioenergetic Analysis gave him much satisfaction since it provides an ongoing forum for examining and furthering the ideas he pioneered. When asked during an interview in 2004 what has given him the most meaning in life, he responds without hesitation, feeling the pleasure and life of the body.
