's review

really liked it

This book lists and defines the kinds of people you meet in a journey through singlehood that you should avoid and then the ones to seek out. For example, there is a great section reviewing the characteristics of people from mild self absorption through narcissism into a sociopath. I've met them all and wish I'd had this guidebook earlier.

Jim Exactly...but even then before I met the psychopaths I had read Cleckley's book in college. There might be a person who assumes the world is sympathetic and empathic...when in so many cases it is not! One does not see just reading the book is not enough. The book has to be seen as assigned reading, for those whom the counseling staff has identified as a raving empath incapable of thinking the world otherwise, and in fact, hunted by the more insidious psychopaths!
