The Sociopath Next Door

The Ruthless Vs. The Rest Of Us

By Martha Stout, Ph.D.

One intriguing and engaging read on this not-so-rare disorder affecting many of those around us. -TWG

“We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people—one in twenty-five—has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in twenty-five everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath. They could be your colleague, your neighbor, even family. And they can do literally anything at all and feel absolutely no guilt.” – book browse.com
