Kort biografi
Robert Hare is Emeritus Professor of Psychology, University of British Columbia, where he has taught and conducted research for more than four decades, and President of Darkstone Research Group Ltd., a forensic research and consulting firm. He has devoted most of his academic career to the investigation of psychopathy, its nature, assessment, and implications for mental health and criminal justice. He is the author of several books, including Without Conscience: The Disturbing World of the Psychopaths Among Us, and more than one hundred scientific articles on psychopathy. He is the developer of the Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R) and a co-author of its derivatives, the Psychopathy Checklist: Screening Version, the Psychopathy Checklist: Youth Version, the Antisocial Process Screening Device, and the P-Scan (for use in law enforcement). He has consulted with law enforcement, including the FBI and the RCMP, was a member of the former Research Advisory Board of the FBI Child Abduction and Serial Murder Investigative Resources Center (CASMIRC), and is an Affiliate Member of the International Criminal Investigative Analysis Fellowship. He also was a member of the Advisory Panel established by Her Majesty’s Prison Service to develop new programs for the treatment of psychopathic offenders. His current research on psychopathy includes assessment issues, developmental factors, neurobiological correlates, risk for recidivism and violence, and the development (with S. Wong) of new treatment and management strategies for psychopathic offenders (Guidelines for a Psychopathy Treatment Program). He and Paul Babiak have extended the theory and research on psychopathy to the business and corporate world, with the development of the B-Scan-360, a 360º instrument used to screen for psychopathic traits and behaviors, and a book, Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go To Work. He lectures widely on psychopathy and on the use and misuse of the PCL-R in the mental health and criminal justice systems. Among his most recent awards are the Silver Medal of the Queen Sophia Center in Spain; the Canadian Psychological Association Award for Distinguished Applications of Psychology; the American Academy of Forensic Psychology Award for Distinguished Applications to the Field of Forensic Psychology; the Isaac Ray Award presented by the American Psychiatric Association and the American Academy of Psychiatry and Law for Outstanding Contributions to Forensic Psychiatry and Psychiatric Jurisprudence; the B.

I recently finished reading The Sociopath Next Door and recognized some of the traits it described in a number of people I’ve had the misfortune of running into over the years. Thank goodness I didn’t recognize any from this book.

I should be upfront and advise that I was required to read this book for a college course entitled "Psychopaths, Sociopaths, and Serial Killers". Keeping that in mind, I have to say that this was a very interesting and informative book. This book offered information on being able to identify psychopaths, how to handle them in your work environment, and how best to keep yourself safe from them. The one lesson that this book enforced was that not all psychopaths are out to hurt you. There are well-established careers that employ psychopaths on a regular basis such as attorneys and surgeons.

There are examples given of psychopaths in prison who achieve high levels on the Psychopath Test which is one given so as to classify true and dangerous paths from those who may be less dangerous. All in all, this was an eye-opening read that made me better understand the world around me.

Surprisingly good. The format of interspersing content-fulled chapters with another episode in the life of Dave works amazingl well.

A great guide to how to deal with psychopaths, full of insights

Was going to give it two stars because:

- It's sensationalist (serves me right for reading a book on this topic, I guess).
- It focuses almost entirely on convicted criminal psychopaths, when the vast majority are never convicted of any crime.
- It is anecdote after anecdote with almost no enlightening statistics information about studies or evidence
- He asserts things without offering proof, and sometimes the things are objectively wrong (e.g. saying that people are getting more violent)
- He says a few things that make me think he really admires psychopaths and wishes he wasn't weighed down by conscience

So that is all two stars... And then he said this:

Some criminals learn to do crime. They are raised in families or social environments in which criminal behaviour [...] is the accepted norm. [...] Dramatic examples of these sub-cultures of criminals include [...] the brands of Gypsies common in some parts of Europe.

You can't just make a sweeping statement about a race like that! NO STARS FOR YOU.
