4.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing.... October 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The information presented is quite useful and I'm sure it's accurate but still, I thought I'd be getting some head's up info about "tells" for spotting a psychopath.. it's more like you'd have to have the person's criminal history, financial history, employment history, then you could answer 150 questions and get a accurate feel for where they are on the psychopath spectrum...

4.0 out of 5 stars Not pleasant, but necessary July 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not all psychopaths are the brutal murderers you see on television. There are plenty of heartless people without a conscience that you meet every day. And if you let them, they'll wreck your life. Navarro, a long time FBI agent shows you how to spot these predators in human form, no matter how charming, slick and empathetic they seem to be. The essay (book is too grand a term for this article-length publication) is built around a checklist of 150 questions that will help you see these people for what they really are.

Navarro's advice for dealing with a psychopath: Get as far away from him or her as possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intersting and factual April 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If you are looking for a book that porttays psychopaths as either killers or CEO`s then this book is not for you. If, on the other hand, you are interested in what personality traits psychopaths have then this is an excellent book that helps you to have an insight into the diagnostic questions that are asked.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have for Fiction Writers November 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once again, Joe Navarro has created a primer for writers. When working on my murder mysteries (which are still in edits) I refer to Navarro's books on a regular basis. Like the others, this short, sweet, on Kindle, and to the point. It is a check-list of character traits of a psychopath.

3.0 out of 5 stars Easily gives false positives May 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this at the recommendation of a friend. It was disappointing in its brevity. It consists of a series of questions about a person's behavior and past considered tests for psychopathy. I'm not sure how many people really need to be told to avoid people with these behaviors, though obviously some victims of abuse may lack awareness or blame themselves.

Though anyone who passes the tests is almost certainly not a psychopath, many who fail are not. The questions do not distinguish between psychopathy and such things as attention deficit disorder or Asperger's. Widely applied, these tests could cruelly add to the suffering of those who are just socially awkward, unfashionable or otherwise unlucky in love.

The essence of psychopathy is lack of empathy. Mere selfishness, irresponsibility or socially unaccepted behavior may be undesirable, but are not necessarily psychopathy. On the other hand, some psychopaths are conniving and intelligent enough to avoid revealing their nature through their outward behavior.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting June 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An interesting compilation of personality traits that, if observed should give pause. It is, however just a list with little elaboration on the impacts of the listed behaviors or traits.
