It is hard to argue with the narcissist aspect of FLW's character, or his guru status, but I wonder if Boyle's book (which I have not bought) deals with FLW's subtle self-deprecating humor? It is hard to reconcile narcissism with humor. I have met a lot of narcissists in my time, and none of them has shown much self reflection, and certainly no humor. Olga fits the definition more closely than Frank.
