IN DEFENSE OF SELFISHNESS & NARCISSISM: PETER SCHWARTZ, DR. CRAIG MALKIN

Dr.MalkinpictureforSelfishessThe authors of two provocative books Peter Schwartz, IN DEFENSE OF SELFISHNESS, WHY THE CODE OF SELF-SACRIFICE IS UNJUST AND DESTRUCTIVE and Dr. Craig Malkin, RETHINKING NARCISSISM, THE BAD AND SURPRISING GOOD ABOUT FEELING SPECIAL join Halli at her table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, August 5, 3 pm ET.

Dr.MalkinBookInDfenseofSelf-ShnessPeter Schwartz is a retired Chairman of the Board of Directors, and currently a Distinguished Fellow of the Ayn Rand Institute. He is the founding editor and publisher of The Intellectual Activist. In his challenging new book IN DEFENSE OF SELFISHNESS, WHY THE CODE OF SELF-SACRIFICE IS UNJUST AND DESTRUCTIVE, Schwartz explores the question: What if altruism is in fact, at the heart of the social conflicts that plague us today?

Dr.MalkinBookcoverIs there a “narcissism epidemic?”  In his eye-opening new book RETHINKING NARCISSISM, THE BAD AND SURPRISING GOOD ABOUT FEELING SPECIAL, Dr. Craig Malkin—author, clinical psychologist, and Instructor of Psychology for Harvard Medical School —offers a radically new model for understanding what he asserts is an often misused term. Narcissism, argues Dr. Malkin, is essentially a spectrum of self-importance— and everyone falls somewhere on the scale between utter selflessness and total arrogance. Currently, Dr. Malkin can be seen on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, which is running a series about RETHINKING NARCISSISM.

For the “Me Generation” and “The Millennials” who have been branded “the most narcissistic generation ever,” and those interested in the Libertarian creed authors Peter Schwartz and Dr. Craig Malkin tackle the good and bad of narcissism and selfishness, Wednesday, August 5, 3 pm ET on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.
