    This book has been exceptionally useful to many parents of the children who I treat. The implications for a society that does not value high quality parenting on a national basis are shocking. If you ever wondered why so many "gangster types" can terribly harm other people without remorse, wondered how 6 year olds can molest babies, wondered what the implications are when young teens with poor parents become poor parents...then this is your book. Clear and concise. I have met the author and attended one of his workshops and he is a heck of a nice guy who really cares about kids. After reading 20 books on the subjects of adoption and foster parenting we finally came up with 'High Risk' and everthing came together. We were in shock at first until we read that not all psychopaths exhibit all the symptoms outlined in the book. Our child had many of them and we felt better because we became empowered by this knowledge and were able to move ahead and try to help him and our situation. I recomend this book to anyone who can read. It should be a must for anyone contemplating becoming a parent. Please help these children by not creating them first. Please help them by reading this book and taking the next steps. Good luck to those who suffer with this problem.

    This book is a very detailed and clear explanation of ASPD

    I've read this book inside and out, and it was very surprising to learn that up to 20% OF THE UNITED STATES POPULATION HAS AT LEAST A MILD FORM OF IT! It is the AIDS of mental illness. So far I've met two psychopaths, and they wreak havoc. I recommend this book to practically everyone, at least read this book halfway in order to understand this manipulative personality at work, school, and around the neighborhood.
