The Sociopath Next Door - I read it a few years ago trying to figure out my sister and the trouble she has caused in my life. It is important for all of us to be aware that some people in our lives have no conscience and can lie, cheat, steal and do pretty much anything to us without a hint of remorse. Never know when you will run into one (estimated at 1 in 25 people), so it's good information to be armed with as you go through life!! Only wish I had read it many years ago.

Yes, Tori...it is a good book to help you understand why some people you run across in life act the way they do and how to protect yourself. I recommend it for all adults, and they should share it with any kids - I would say 12 yrs. and above - in their life. We all need to be wary of this type of disordered personality, whether it be in our school, workplace, organization or family.

We must have the SAME sister.......
I mean no disrsepct and absolutely do not mean anything in the way of taking any enjoyment in this, but it is a bit of a relief to know someone else out there has this same issue.

Just look up "NPD" or narcissistic personality disorder. I had an NPD partner who nearly drove me over the edge...and these people only show the outside world their charm- so that when you attempt to defend yourself, you look like the liar- it's truly awful. One good source:

Mine is "THE GREATEST SALESMAN IN THE WORLD"
There is something heroic in the way in which "true" salespeople earn their living. It requires a warrior's mentality. If you are a "Commission Only" salesperson, and cannot afford to fail because you have nowhere to fail to, "The Greatest Salesman in the World" is the map that will guide you on that road that winds uphill all the way to the very end on the day's journey that lasts from morn to night, my friend.

I first read "The Greatest Salesman" in July 1973 and, immediately thereafter, vectored into a Cosmic Consciousness Experience, the resultant of which was a perfectly integrated structure function relationship in which I and the book became one. I have read "The Greatest Salesman" everyday from the day of that experience to the present.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, among others, has said that "we become what we think about." "The Greatest Salesman" is what I think about. I recorded the words of the 10 Scrolls on cassette, in my own voice, and listen to it on my morning drive to the office and on the way home.

There are three books which I emphatically recommend to all who won't eat until they shoot the buffalo:
1. "Skill With People" by Les Giblin;
2. "The Greatest Salesman in the World" by Og Mandino; and
3. "Closing the Sale" by J. Douglas Edwards.

Les Giblin reveals what it is that people need to hear; Og Mandino essentially shows you how to brainwash yourself with the principles for success; and J. Douglas Edwards will teach you how to get the money. Each of these books can be easily and quickly read in one sitting. Buy these books at any cost. Do not borrow them! As one of my Master Teachers, "Cherry Hill Fats," the 700 pound creative sales genius was fond of saying, "People only value what they pay for; they only read what they buy.

Og Mandino and I spoke often over the years before his return to the Father, the true Author of "The Greatest Salesman." If the world followed his teachings, we would all become like story book children walking hand in hand across the meadow.

My newest book, SETTLE FOR BEST: SATISFY THE WINNER YOU WERE BORN TO BE, is a self-help book based loosely on Napoleon Hill's seminal bestseller, THINK AND GROW RICH. But it isn't only about attaining wealth; it's about attaining every kind of wealth. It launched at midnight here at Amazon. I hope you'll find it of value. One lady who home-schooled her kids in high school says if it had been available when she was doing that, she would have made it part of the curriculum. High praise, indeed!

Unfortunately, jipsii M'Sina there are many sisters that fit the socio profile. Sorry to hear you have been cursed with one too. Reading the book at least helps you sort through the confusion and begin to heal from the damage they cause in our lives. ; )

You know NOTHING about me, so don't presume to define me by your interpretations and standards. I believe there is something in The Bible about this "SIN" too.

I just read "I Suck at Office Interviews" by B.S. Jobs. It's an easy to read guideline book for recent grads and anyone who wants an office job. It's not long so it's easy to remember. It's to the point and not sugary.

I would like to suggest my own book "The Emotional Toolbox: A Manual for Mental Health." My readers have found it widely useful and some have even said it's inspiring. Check it out.

Hello Dan;
I have put your book on my wishlist, right beside and along with "The Sociopath Next Door." Sounds like a promising couple of insights and "lessons." Thank you for your offering.

This is the best Self Help book I have ever read, but my opinion is not unbiased - I wrote it:

How about a print edition for those of us who can't afford the latest in reading technology? (Semi-Retired and on a fixed income.)

jipsii M'Sina...

You first said:

"We must have the SAME sister.......I mean no disrsepct and absolutely do not mean anything in the way of taking any enjoyment in this, but it is a bit of a relief to know someone else out there has this same issue."

Then, when I responded sympathetically and suggested a book that may be helpful, you go psycho on me:

"You know NOTHING about me, so don't presume to define me by your interpretations and standards. I believe there is something in The Bible about this "SIN" too."

What the hell? Did I miss something here? Guess I got sucked in to your pity play...you can be sure I won't bother you again.

"I Suck at office Interviews" by B.S. Jobs ideal for recent grads.

It appears tht I may owe you an apology. I TOTALLY misundestood your post, comig asfter I pulled up a book someone referenced. When I check the is book, the synopsis made reference to Biblical implications of women and the "sin" of sex and it seemed something subjegating women and like right out ot the fifties. This has bothered me as I pondered your response to me, which I assumed was in response to my otraged reaction at this book. I am so sorry that I "flew off the handle" in my anger at this book even being suggested to anyone. (Especially in the throes of the recurrent pain of being victimized - - it felt like one more "moral lesson" in the supposed sins of sex somehow being related to victimization, and totally inappropriate to the enlightenmewnt we strive for in these days.) I will have to look back and find the name of the book and see if I got the wrong one when I clicked on the link. I am VERY slow these days and it has taken me several days to grasp that there was something "off" in our communication and in my reaction. I do ponder conversations long after they are over and this one just did not feel right. I have looked it over several times, but it was not until this AM that it occurred to me what might have been wrong.

Please forgive me and accept my apology.

-- and to anyone else reading this, I sincerely apololgize to anyone I offended and for my lashing out at PM in the throes of all this.

As to why is AMZ is deleting so many conversations, I am beginning to wonder if there is something awry in the links that is causing people to have these kneejerk reactions when wires of communication get crossed electronically, giving forum members (literally) the wrong messages, spurring them into similar outrages and maybe some expressed inappropriately. Just speculation as I wonder if I got the wrong book and started off on my own tirade.
