We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people, one in 25, has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in 25 everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath.

I feel very understood and hopeful. I have always tried to "keep my love safe" and "stay sensitive," internally, but I never knew what /why this feeling was. As a scientist by training, I appreciate the use of responsible citing and sound skepticism; this is comforting. I can check off every box in the unhealthy childhood list, so embracing my trait, or anything to do with self-love, has been incredibly challenging. This book is a great resource, which brings me joy and hope. Thank you!

A truly helpful, honest and informed read. I have been raising my teenaged sister, and I cherish the gentle and benevolent insight provided by this book. It's not easy to raise a teenager, but it is so worth it when you see them happily growing.
