I have already recommended this to several colleagues.
No. This is the first one of her's I have listened to.
I learned a great deal about this condition - very eye opening.
This book is not fun to read. Too many people in this world fit into the category of sociopath.
Yes, so many people get run over by Sociopaths.
How real this problem is.
Nice warm and Friendly Voice. A soothing performance.
When they start to list the traits of Sociopaths. You'll end up wondering if you are one.
I believe this book underestimates the amount of Sociopaths out there.
The rules and tools for dealing with this type of person. This is a useful tool if you are struggling to understand what makes them the way they are and how to minimize the damage they do.
Learning to cope.
Explaining in simple and understandable language how to spot and deal with those who have created problems for us in the past and eliminating those who cause problems in the future.
Without reading the book I couldn't say.
From the beginning of the book I began to better understand others I have delt with in the past who seem to enjoy hurting others..
The content fulfilled the title. Fundamental, but not
I enjoyed the examples and the clinical/DSM material(s), fascinating.
Ultimately, I felt like a dope for having missed or having been misled, too trusting, through my life. But we can only do what we do when we don't know what else to do. I'm still a happy, loving, trusting person...but thankful for having been given the tools to protect myself going forward.
Wanting to see the best in everybody, encountering individuals that seemingly just want to inflict as much emotional pain as possible to others is hard to comprehend. This book validates that a significant amount of people actually do act to hurt others just for fun. Several of the examples could have come directly out of my life.
I have recommended this audio book to co-workers, friends and family. I consider it to be essential listening for all.
I don't buy it. The author tells us that 4% of the population are sociopaths. That is an incredible figure. Sure, there are people with varying degrees of morality. But, I am sorry. There is no way 1 in 25 of the population actually have no conscience. Those sensationalists and conspiracy theorists out there will love this book. It's definitely provocative and draws you in. I think, however, it's important to read this one with a healthy amount of scepticism.
I would recommend this book to my friends and family.
I was shocked by the information provided and find it invaluable.
The stories provided as examples of sociopaths were sadly familiar.
The association of pity with sociopaths was surprising.
The book provides essential information for dealing with people without conscience.
This book wasn't what I thought it would be. I expected to learn more about the mind of a sociopath - but honestly, I just didn't finish it.
