Sobre o livro
Americans have become fascinated with sociopathsjust witness the popularity of Hannibal Lecter inSilence of the Lambs, King Joffrey inGame of Thrones, and Frank Underwood inHouse of Cards. Part of it may be due to the fact that some estimates put their number in our society as high as one in twenty-five. But the real reason is a respect for results: sociopaths know how to get what they want!Brutally honest and scathingly funny,The Sociopaths Guide to Getting Ahead is a practical satire that holds a funhouse mirror to American business and political culture. It is the first book to call out the new, scientifically grounded insights of social psychology for what they are: tips for the dark art of manipulation. Filled with surprising cameo appearances from Dostoyevsky, Plato, Robert Greene, Dale Carnegie, and Malcolm Gladwell, it provides the skills you need to succeed (and, just as importantly, to keep others down).In a time where even our leaders show it is OK to do whatever it takes to get ahead,The Sociopaths Guide to Getting Ahead is the only tool you need to make sure you come out on top.
