I should be upfront and advise that I was required to read this book for a college course entitled "Psychopaths, Sociopaths, and Serial Killers". Keeping that in mind, I have to say that this was a very interesting and informative book. This book offered information on being able to identify psychopaths, how to handle them in your work environment, and how best to keep yourself safe from them. The one lesson that this book enforced was that not all psychopaths are out to hurt you. There are well-established careers that employ psychopaths on a regular basis such as attorneys and surgeons.

There are examples given of psychopaths in prison who achieve high levels on the Psychopath Test which is one given so as to classify true and dangerous paths from those who may be less dangerous. All in all, this was an eye-opening read that made me better understand the world around me.
