This book kept my interest and is a good follow up to the author's mentor Robert Hare's book Without Conscience.

For whatever reason, Psychopaths are all the rage right now in publishing. Being a single woman in NYC, it's good to brush up on one's knowledge of these creatures. However, I may have saturated my brain with social science books on sociopaths and psychopaths, so there was nothing really new in this book for me. He is an accessible writer so it is easy reading for the layperson, but it had trouble fully holding my interest. Again, this may be because i have read a lot about this topic (and done a lot of field work while dating in NYC, haha), but it is definitely better than that new book by a professor who claims to have had a brain scan that revealed him to be a psychopath. Boy, that was an exploitive stinker of a book.
