Publisher Description

Psychopaths are often thought of as killers and rapists, but up to 10 per cent of people are probably psychopathic without being criminals. Science suggests psychopaths don't have empathy. Although charming in the early stages of a relationship or employment, they will leave you feeling cheated and humiliated, will dominate and manipulate you, denying reality to the point where you question your sanity. Psychopaths derive power from creating chaos that renders the rest of us immobile with confusion and resentment. The everyday psychopath is at best disruptive, and at worst highly dangerous to your day-to-day life. At a societal level, their presence in powerful positions can be disastrous. Psychopaths have always been around, Gillespie argues, but were traditionally constrained by social disapproval. But as community-building institutions dissolve, so does our ability to use social tools to constrain the psychopaths among us. Taming Toxic People is a practical guide to restraining the difficult person in your life, be it your boss, your spouse or a parent. It is also a serious and meticulously researched warning if we value a free and well-functioning society: if we don't understand and act to manage psychopathic behaviour, Trump is only the beginning.

Author Biography

For the last ten years, former lawyer and bestselling author David Gillespie has devoted himself to exposing forces in today's society that work against our interests as consumers and citizens. Beginning with the Sweet Poison books he followed those up with Big Fat Lies and Toxic Oil. He then focused on education in Free Schools, before returning to the topic of human nutrition in Eat Real Food. Now David turns his attention to another endemic societal threat - the everyday psychopath.

Overall good. Have to deal to a toxic person in the family from time to time. One word throughout the book missing, and only mentioned once "Jealousy". and that is a definite trait. Incessant and obsessive jealousy.
