Book Review: Snakes And Suits: When Psychopaths Go To Work

This is a mostly useful book about recognizing and dealing with psychopaths at work. If someone has good social skills - yet makes you feel uneasy -  they just might be a psychopath.  If someone has a work history of changing jobs quite frequently, they just might be a psychopath. 

Psychopaths operate by listening to serving people very closely, and then using people's deepest emotions to benefit the psychopath. The idea of moral ethics strikes a psychopath as actually wrong - might makes right in their world view.

I can do without the pointless fictionalized stories about psychopaths at work.  Other than that it's a very useful introduction to how psychopaths think, and how to identify a psychopath.  This book was also co-written by the preeminent theorist Robert Hare.
