I just bought the Audible version of this book after reading the hardcover book. This book is worth reading again! If you have ever been unlucky enough to have been involved with someone (authority figure, work colleague, child, marriage partner, etc.) who is a sociopath you'll need to read this book to help you understand what is happening, has happened and why.
It is particularly chilling and terrifying to see what is happening globally right now. When you read about the way "a lovable & charming" sociopath operates and what motivates him, you can better understand why we find ourselves in such an inexplicable, polarized and hateful mess both at home and abroad.
Knowlege is power and this book can empower us all - if we read it. Another illuminating must-read book on this subject is "Without Conscience, The Psychopaths Among Us" by Hare.
I have always considered it a treat when I hear Sara Vowell's short essays on National Public Radio. I was nearly dizzy with delight when I found that she had written an entire book! I certainly wasn't disappointed when I bought this book.
Even without that "unique" voice, her highly original, serious and thoughtful insight can't mask the fact that this woman is verrrrry funny. I can hardly wait for her next offering.
