With Dangerous Liaisons, Moscovici makes an invaluable, genuinely distinguished contribution to the literature on psychopathy.

The author does a supreme job articulating both her knowledge/experience and the knowledge/research from other sources on this subject.
Throughout my life I unknowingly served as a fuel tank for scores of disordered predators. It ended in February, 2018 at an age of almost 53.
Since that time I started studying what was going on, and with each new _good_ book I am unearthing a new layer of negative programming by my dysfunctional family, which has permeated all my life, thinking, and made me an excellent piece of fuel for predators.
This book, while heavily leaning on the works of others, (and precisely because of interpreting and re-interpreting them from some new angles, layman perspectives, etc. ) very much helped me to see some more levels of that dysfunctional programming and aspects of predators' behaviour.
This is a really helpful book, which totally worth every penny spent and every minute of reading it.
Dear Claudia, thank you so very much!
I like for instance that Moscovici spells out well the process of psychopathic seduction: 1)Idealize, 2) devalue, and 3) discard.
There is a chapter on Picasso's treatment of his many women. Here, Moscovici postulates that Picasso was a psychopath. I have read a lot about Picasso's life, and nowhere else have I seen this statement about him. But I tend to agree with her: She is right that he had so many psychopathic features that it is justified to call him a psychopath (even though he was not violent).
The chapter `understanding the science behind the disorder' does not tell much. More may be read elsewhere.
However, in case you want to buy just one single book about how male psychopaths seduce women, I would recommend: Sandra L. Brown (2009): "Women who love psychopaths". Moscovici has one chapter dealing with this book, but I would rather recommend that you read Brown's book yourself. It is probably the best written on the subject.
