    NPA theory is simply a diamond in the rough for those interested in researching the biological implications of narcissism. To those who may point out that NPA theory is controversial, my response to them is that history tells us that new theories are always challenged by the establishment, and many lay dormant for years until finally "discovered". Dr. Benis is well ahead of his time and I believe that his NPA theory is at the very least a giant leap in the right direction in the study of nature in relation to mental disorders.
