Just like a snake these individuals slither their way into the minds and hearts of many trusting, kind and caring people. Like a snake they position themselves, cold eyes fixed, ready to strike at will. No one is safe or secure in the presence of these reptiles. By the time their victim realizes they have been bitten, the snake has already shed it's skin, put on a 'new suit' and merrily winds it's way up the corporate ladder. To the snake who has no conscience, it is business as usual.

Either learn beforehand about manipulators without conscience who will take all you have built up - or discover after the fact as you pick up the dreadful pieces. This is an important book as is Dr. Hare's first book, 'Without Conscience'. Not all psychopaths are so compulsive that they end up in jail. Some are quite content to steal slowly and quietly - your job, your money, your home. They will turn your boss and loyal employees against you. They are expert at what they do. I wish this must-read was taught in business schools before unsuspecting youth head into the workplace.

Certainly worth a read, but somewhat repetitive.

This book was recommended to me as I was developing an anti-fraud course for my employer. I was told it would help me better understand how "successful" fraudsters were able to pull it off. What I really learned was how to navigate in a corporate world around those people we all encounter. You know them: the person who takes credit for your work, the person who changes the story based on who is listening, the person who seems to badmouth everyone but you, the "go-getter" who keeps getting ahead but never seems to accomplish anything. You might just be working w/ one of these "snakes." I have recommended this book so many times I've lost count. Not only will it open your eyes to behavior you may have ignored, but it also provides practical guidance around how to protect yourself and others based on the nature of your relationship with this individual. If you have gotten this far because you are thinking about purchasing - BUY THIS BOOK. You won't be sorry.

U say one mmore thing i am going to tell mom and dad. I dont care if it gets me in trouble u dont call me a brat for one im older than u and i swear u dont disrespect me like that. I asked u nicely to stop talking like that and you talked like a rude disrespectful selfish litte brat. Mom is right. Theres something seriously wrong with the way you think. U better be joking when u said that. Stop trying to act all tough and ur like mr. Tough guy cuase your not. Your a scrawny little kid who thinks he xan get all he wants and only thinks of himself. Honestly im worried for u and when u get older because people will be beating your butt in high school. And trust me i know. So quit acting all big and tough because ur not. Nobody likes u. At all. Especially when utry to act all tough. Dylan is right here and he says that u are stupid even when ur not trying to act all tough so again im going to ask nice again pls stop acting like ...basically urself. Nobpdy likes it. So get over ur self.
