This was interesting and a quick read. If you're curious about how we identify psychopaths clinically -- or if you're just curious about what psychopathic tendencies your significant other displays -- this should fill you in, and give you a couple of interesting case studies along the way. There's also some musing about the role of psychopaths in the upper echelons of corporate culture that provides some food for thought. But for me, the most entertaining portion by far was the description of an experimental treatment for psychopaths in the 70s that involved naked group therapy while everyone tripped on prison-supplied LSD. Can you even imagine?
