This latest scholarly work of Dr Martin Kantor reads like a best-seller novel. He drew me in from the first page and I could not put it down! Finally I have explanations for some of the callous, hard hearted behaviors that often I see in people around me. Rich with real life examples and plenty of Dr Kantor's characteristically brilliant insight and wit, The Psychopathy of Everyday Life is a book that everyone could benefit from reading. Whether you are a therapist looking for deeper insight into the gray area of mild psychopathy to more effectively treat your patients a lay person trying to understand hurtful behaviors of the people around you or if others have identified some disturbing behaviors about you and you want to dig deeper, this book will not only enlighten, but also give you solutions, including extensive descriptions on how various individual and group therapies work for the mild psychopath. Kantor doesn't forget the everyday victims of psychopaths either. Perhaps my favorite chapter of all is the final chapter 'Coping with Psychopaths of Everyday Life'. Here the good doctor gives a six-step method that helps us to protect ourselves from the wrath of everyday psychopathic behaviors, by identifying our personal vulnerabilities and learning to stop enabling the psychopaths in our lives. This book is a must read. Give it as a gift to your therapist, to a friend who too often lets other people upset her, or to a person who could use a hint about some of their own behaviors. This book contains a wealth of information and makes a great addition to anyone's library. Highly recommended! Raeleen D'Agostino, Ph.D.
