it was amazing

This book is a must read! Martha Stout brilliantly educates the public on these dangerous and destructive characters, in particular, how to identify them. Oftentimes, those nagging doubts, red flags and uneasy feelings are quite accurate instinctual assessments. Sociopaths are artificial, particularly in the area of love, yet charming enough to con and manipulate others. Think Jim Jones. But also think of that individual that you meet and you walk away with reservations or an uneasy feeling. After reading this book, you may be more inclined to listen to your inner wisdom. Sociopaths are incapable of love, lack empathy and they are often fanatical. They do not express remorse and they never apologize. They are predatorial, delusional and literally believe their own bizarre tales and lies. They prey upon the unsuspecting. After reading this book, you will become more prudent and cautious in your dealings with others, who you permit into your life and family. Protect yourself and your loved ones and read the book.

Quotes Nicole Liked

Martha Stout
“A part of a healthy conscience is being able to confront consciencelessness. When you teach your daughter, explicitly or by passive rejection, that she must ignore her outrage, that she must be kind and accepting to the point of not defending herself or other people, that she must not rock the boat for any reason, you are NOT strengthening her prosocial sense, you are damaging it--and the first person she will stop protecting is herself.”
Martha Stout, The Sociopath Next Door
