Editorial Reviews

Review

Through careful study, research and painful personal experience, Donna Andersen eloquently outlines and describes in easy-to-understand, straight-talk language the behaviors and warning signs of the sociopath. For everyone on the dating scene, in the business world, or involved in a relationship, this book is a must read. --Dr. Fran Walfish, Beverly Hills psychotherapist and author of The Self-Aware Parent

Most people learn about sociopaths the hard way -- after their lives have been destroyed by one. This book can arm you, with the insights to see through their charm, seduction and manipulation. Read it and learn the red flags -- before it's too late! --Dr. George K. Simon Jr., Author of In Sheep's Clothing: Understanding and Dealing with Manipulative People and Character Disturbance

This is the pivotal guide for anyone who is dating, whether via the Intenet or social events. Donna Andersen teaches you how to recognize the telltale signs that the person may be a fraud. She is the nation's expert after living her own nightmare, married to a sociopath who almost destroyed her life. Red Flags of Love Fraud is the only resource I would endorse to my thousands of students globally. --David Wygant, Internationally renowned dating and relationship coach, author of Naked: How to Find the Perfect Partner by Revealing Your True Self

About the Author

Donna Andersen is author of Red Flags of Love Fraud - 10 signs you're dating a sociopath. She is also author of Lovefraud.com, a website and blog that teaches people how to recognize and recover from sociopaths.

Andersen learned about sociopaths the hard way--by marrying one. In two-and-a-half years, her husband defrauded her of $227,000, cheated on her with at least six women, fathered a child with one of them, and then, 10 days after Andersen left him, married the mother of the child. It was the second time he committed bigamy. She tells the whole outrageous story in her first book, Love Fraud - How marriage to a sociopath fulfilled my spiritual plan.

This man had no conscience, no empathy and lied prolifically--which Andersen discovered, far too late, were the cardinal signs of a sociopath. In 2005, Andersen launched Lovefraud.com to educate the public about this destructive personality disorder.

Lovefraud.com now receives almost 3,000 visits every day, and is considered the best source on the Internet about relationships with sociopaths. Andersen has collected more than 3,800 cases of people targeted by sociopaths, and the Lovefraud blog has evolved into a healing community of survivors. Andersen receives many e-mails from people who thank Lovefraud for saving their lives.

Andersen has worked as a freelance copywriter since 1983, and was the original editor of Atlantic City Magazine from 1978 to 1982. She graduated summa cum laude from the Syracuse University's S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in 1978. While at college she co-founded a student magazine and worked at the student newspaper, the Daily Orange.


More About the Author

Donna Andersen is author of Lovefraud.com, a website and blog that teaches people how to recognize and recover from sociopaths. She is also the author of "Red Flags of Love Fraud - 10 signs you're dating a sociopath," and the "Red Flags of Love Fraud Workbook."

Donna learned about sociopaths the hard way--by marrying one. James Alwyn Montgomery, originally of Sydney, Australia, met her and quickly proposed in 1996. In two-and-a-half years, Montgomery defrauded her of $227,000, cheated on her with at least six different women, fathered a child with one of them, and then, 10 days after Andersen left him, married the mother of the child. It was the second time he committed bigamy. Donna's first book, "Love Fraud--How marriage to a sociopath fulfilled my spiritual plan," tells the whole outrageous story.

This man had no conscience, no empathy and lied prolifically--which Donna learned, far too late, were the cardinal signs of a sociopath. Suspecting that other people were as unfamiliar with sociopaths as she once was, in 2005, Donna launched Lovefraud.com to educate the public about this destructive personality disorder. It's working.

Lovefraud.com now receives more than 3,500 visits every day, and readers often say the website is the best source on the Internet about sociopaths. Donna has collected 2,000 cases of people targeted by sociopaths. Some readers share their experiences on the Lovefraud blog, which has evolved into a healing community of survivors. In fact, Donna receives many e-mails from people who thank Lovefraud for saving their lives.

Donna's prior career in journalism, advertising and marketing communications helped her to create an effective website. She was the original editor of Atlantic City Magazine from 1978 to 1982. She founded a boutique advertising agency, Donna Andersen Copywriting, in 1983. Her portfolio includes multimedia scriptwriting, freelance magazine articles, newsletters, print ads, brochures, direct mail, press releases, radio commercials, website content, e-mail campaigns and white papers.

Donna graduated summa cum laude from the Syracuse University's S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in 1978. While at college she co-founded a student magazine and worked at the student newspaper, the Daily Orange. She also took up crew, and is still a competitive rower.

Donna lives with her new husband, Terry Kelly, in New Jersey.

Format: Paperback
Donna Andersen, the author of Love Fraud the book and the website/support group Lovefraud.com, has recently published a new book, called Red Flags of Love Fraud: Ten Signs You're Dating a Sociopath, which I'd highly recommend for anyone who suspects (or knows) they are with a pathological individual. Psychopaths are extremely dangerous because they lack a heart and conscience but they camouflage that fundamental lack so well. They construct a "mask of sanity" by lying to others and hiding their real motives and identities. With their extraordinary glibness and charm, they come on strong to their potential victims, love bombing them, flattering them, mirroring their interests and personalities--essentially, seducing them--then use them for their selfish and malicious purposes. Since they can't bond emotionally with others and have no conscience, there's no limit to the devastation they can cause in people's lives. Experts estimate that between 1 and 4 percent of the population is psychopathic. Since psychopaths are very sociable and promiscuous, this means that millions of psychopaths in this country alone adversely affect hundreds of millions of lives.

As its title suggests, Red Flags of Love Fraud teaches victims and the general public how to recognize the red flags of the psychopathic bond--which are far from obvious in the beginning. This book draws upon Donna's own personal experience (she was married for several years to a psychopathic conman and bigamist named James Montgomery); testimonials and research from lovefraud.com readers (conducted with her lovefraud partner, Dr. Liane Leedom), and--last but not least--a lot of her own analyses of psychopathic behavior and insights about the mindset of victims.

This book was extremely eye-opening. I found out recently that I was married to a sociopath for nearly 5 years. I divorced him a year ago, but I am still finding out stuff about him and I'm not even soliciting this information! This book was frighteningly accurate. No, my ex-husband did not exhibit all 10 red flags. Nor was he physically abusive towards me, though I found out he has been towards other women in the past. But it was shocking how much he fit the "profile," as he exhibited most signs of sociopathy. Reading this book was in some ways very hard for me, but it was also very healing. Now I feel like I have a sense of closure with that relationship because I understand things. Also, I have been very fearful about dating and ending up with someone else just like him. After reading this, I feel a little more confident. I will never again be able to miss the signs of a sociopath - even if I wanted to! I'm intimately familiar. Plus, reading all the excerpts from other women's letters made me feel better; at least I'm not the only one. And I see now how much worse my situation could have been!

Format: Paperback
I was in a 6-year relationship with a guy who alternately told me I was his "soulmate" almost daily; then cheated on me; then treated me like a goddess; then flew into rages and called me the "c" word, among others, whenever I disagreed with or displeased him; then had SO MUCH FUN with him because he is charming, outgoing, and everyone loves him; then caught him in ANOTHER lie and found out about yet another woman he was cheating on me with; then believed the ridiculous lie he told when he said he wasn't cheating; then snuggled with him in front of the TV until he got bored (which was often); then did something risky with him because he was impulsive and easily bored; then heard him backstab yet another "friend", and on and on.

I finally googled "sociopathic relationships" because I'd come to realize he was a sociopath but didn't understand much more than that. Come to find out, through the author's site "lovefraud.com", that all sociopaths behave about the same in relationships, with some minor deviations, and I just realized I was a victim of a sociopath.

After that, I read as many books on the subject I could find but, when Donna's book came out, I ordered it and found it to be the best, BY FAR, of all the books out there concerning loving, surviving, escaping and, finally, healing from a sociopath. If I had read hers first I would have known EXACTLY what I was dealing with much earlier because it lays out, concisely and with multitudes of real-world examples, exactly how a sociopath operates in a romantic relationship.

If any of the behaviors I outlined in the first paragraph sound familiar, please do yourself a favor and buy this book!

I think this is a "must read" book. It was very informative. Almost like a friend. I felt like I was reading my own (unfortunate) story sometimes. Had I read this book when it first came out it would have saved me a lot of heartache. About 4 years worth. Donna sums things up so well that you will have many Ah Ha moments. All of the signs of the sociopath I was with are in the book. Even the "quirky" things that I couldn't figure out. But they all spelled sociopath. Again, for anyone dating or thinking about dating this is a must read since statistically you will encounter at least one sociopath in your lives. Probably many.
