It covers the nature of psychopaths in the context of employment and explains
The work is interlaced with fictional narrative illustrating how the factual content applies to real-life situations.
I had been doing some reading on Psychopathy.
I first came across the book while going through a second hand store. I had previously been doing some research. It so happen the book cover image was something I recognized on the shelf, so I paid a sum of $6.00. I had thought what a deal. It's something I do when I scour second hand stores. I am always heading directly for the books.
Anyway, there are reasons that I had been doing this research. It also raises some concern as to how people not qualified could have judged each other without really having the credentials for doing so. Not that anyone said I was, but it concerns me that one could lack that empathy and emotional force within. Have a disregard for how other people could be hurt emotionally by such callus.

how psychopaths and antidepressants influence our society
a provocative snapshot of the world we live in
It is a well-known fact that our society is structured like a pyramid. The very few people at the top create conditions for the majority below. Who are these people? Can we blame them for the problems our society faces today? Guided by the saying "A fish rots from the head." we set out to follow that fishy odor. What we found out is that people at the top are more likely to be psychopaths than the rest of us.
Who, or what, is a psychopath? Unlike Hollywood's stereotypical image, they are not always blood-thirsty monsters from slasher movies. Actually, that nice lady who chatted you up on the subway this morning could be one. So could your elementary school teacher, your grinning boss, or even your loving boyfriend. The medical definition is simple: A psychopath is a person who lacks empathy and conscience, the quality which guides us when we choose between good and evil, moral or not. Most of us are conditioned to do good things. Psychopaths are not. Their impact on society is staggering, yet altogether psychopaths barely make up one percent of the population.
