1.0 out of 5 stars This book is corruption of Psychopathy for the sake of Psychopaths, November 26, 2012

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success (Kindle Edition)
If you have read the works of psychopathy pioneers Robert Hare ( `Snakes in Suites','With out conscience') or Hervey Cleckley ( The Mask of Sanity ) or Andrzej Lobaczewski (Political Ponerology ), this book is a TORTURE to read. This book is complete opposite of those works and outright corruption of psychopathy information. Author was hell bent on twisting and manipulating every study to point psychopaths are glamorous hero's while giving every possible excuse for their evil deeds. He starts his book saying "My father is a psychopath" while supporting his fathers cunning deed as skill for the modern society. The author either doesn't understands how normal people with conscience will feel and react with decency or don't want to. The stories he narrates and conclusions he makes are mediocre, highly superficial. Each argument is so much twisted, one need another book to untwist it. No wonder the main stream media that is the lapdog of the psychopaths is praising this book.

Do NOT read this book for your own sanity.

Rao is a literal thinker. If it isn't there, if it doesn't knock him in the head, then can't believe in it. I would suggest a course in APPLIED psychology that may assist in providing value in thinking across the board.
