This book (recommended by a friend of a friend) makes one simple point: 1 in 25 Americans are sociopaths. That is, they have no conscience, no capacity for empathy, and are basically prone to all that nutty and jaw dropping behavior we witness every day. It’s not worth reading the book, because I just spilled the beans: if you’re ever wondering why someone is acting like a complete jackass, completely inconsiderate of someone else, he or she is probably a sociopath, and you just need to deal with that reality (and stay away!).
