This is a high-level summary of an extremely important topic (pointing to the source of much past/present human misery). This is OK for a "brief introduction" but the reader would benefit greatly from Robert Hare's books (Without Conscience and Snakes in Suits). One of the best treatments of the subject is to be found in Political Ponerology by Andrew M. Lobaczewski and Laura Knight-Jadczyk.

I prefer more in depth, but it was a quick, informative, easy read. Very important, as part of what's so very wrong with Wall St and government today, is too many with Psychopathic Personality Disorder have infiltrated both. They don't CARE about destruction of the planet, forests, oceans, animals, etc. and definitely NOT other humans. They have different brains, and are 1 in 25 of the population. They have ZERO compassion, empathy, guilt, regret, remorse. A lot of 'functioning' ones are destroying the economy, culture, the middle class, the planet itself, and find the rest of us, 'normal' humans very easy to manipulate for their own ends. If the disorder is named, they are 'outed' and lose power, but instead everyone tries to convince them to 'care', and it is impossible - they are incapable.

The booklet is a short but precise description of a segment of our society that can not fit in. The majority of humans have a conscience, something totally void in psychopaths. The booklet concentrates largely on the male predators but females display the same antisocial behaviors. As the booklet further states, psychopaths amongst us are hard to identify at first sight. It is rather scary to find oneself caught in the web of such predators and it is very had to get out of the clutches of such skilled actors, but it can be done as the booklet indicates. This is just an excerpt of a larger book by author Stefan Verstappen it is worth reading.

I found the information in this book to be clear and informative, but most important was the fact that I could immediately use this information in veveryday situations. I throughly appreciate this book and will read it again and again, until I can master the subject information from it.

The book is short, concise, and to the point. No rambling, scientific jargon...just to the point and very, very informative.

I felt it useful to a better understanding of minds I myself do not understand. It could be helpful to many.
