Almost. Not quite. Interesting but a bit dry and repetitive. ( )
  Sullywriter | May 22, 2015 |
A psychologist and a prosecutor write about a type of personality type that is not quite psychopathic, but “almost” so: people who are manipulative, deceitful, and grandiose, and who seem not to be bothered by the fact that they take advantage of and hurt other people. The authors assert that this type of personality is shockingly common. Their advice for dealing with people who are almost psychopaths amounts to recognizing such people for what they are and then minimizing interactions with them as much as possible. I thought that Martha Stout’s book, “The Sociopath Next Door,” was a much more informative source of information on dealing effectively with manipulative, apparently conscience-free people. ( )
