Brajesh's Review : Confessions of a Sociopath
Confessions of a Sociopath is written by a self-confessed and subsequently clinically-diagnosed psychopath woman, under a pseudonym - M E Thomas.
The book is an excellent commentary on the much-maligned diagnosis, normally associated with murderers & con-artists. It outlines that similar psychopathic tendencies are also required to be a successful politician or business leader.
Having spent close to two decades in the corporate trenches I can safely say that I have personally encountered more than one business leader who would fit the bill. The book also demystifies psychopathic tendencies which many of us will relate to. So even if you aren’t a full blown psychopath, you will surely relate to loads of behavioural and social traits. Recommended reading to all politicians, business leaders and amateur students of psychology like myself.
Rating : 3.5/5
