It is estimated that psychopaths make up about 1 percent of the general population. They do everything that a normal person does, with the exception that they possess no empathy and/or conscience toward others, are highly skilled in the art of manipulation, and they have no compunction using others to get what they want and are masters at it. This book is intended for mental health professionals who want to know more about a phenomenon that is both fascinating and scary and who seek to gain information about a topic that, thus far, has received scant attention from researchers. The authors focus on a number of different areas concerning subclinical psychopathy, with some chapters being more technical than others primarily due to the nature of the data reported. Chapters include: An Introduction to Subclinical Psychopathy; A Short History of Psychopathy; What is Subclinical Psychopathy?; The Psychopathic Brain; Child and Adolescent Psychopaths; Interpersonal Relationships; Personality Factors—How to Detect Psychopaths; Treatment for Psychopathy; and How to Deal with the Psychopath in Your Life. While the book is not a treatise on subclinical psychopathy, after reading it, readers will walk away with a better understanding of the subject.

Every element of the formula by which the psychopath subjugates his victim, the Islamic Supremacist likewise uses to ensnare and subjugate non-Muslims. And in the same way that the victim of the psychopath is complicit in his own destruction, Western civilization is now embracing and enabling its own conquest and consumption.

What do Scott Peterson, Neil Entwistle and timeless literary seducers epitomized by Don Juan and Casanova have in common? They are charismatic, glib and seductive men who also embody the most dangerous human qualities: a breathtaking callousness, shallowness of emotion and the incapacity to love. In other words, these men are psychopaths. Unfortunately, most psychopaths don’t advertise themselves as heartless social predators. They come across as charming, intelligent, romantic and kind. Through their believable “mask of sanity,” they lure many of us into their dangerous nets. Dangerous Liaisons explains clearly what psychopaths are, why they act the way they do, how they attract us and whom they tend to target. Above all, this book helps victims find the strength to end their toxic relationships with psychopaths and move on, stronger and wiser, with the rest of their lives.

When worldly, no-nonsense travel agent Pius Bird attends a reenactment of the 1622 massacres near Williamsburg, Virginia, he gets an event far more realistic than he expects. The actors pull the observers into the assault, and as far as Pius can tell, it's not an act. The violence forces him and a woman he saves into the woods where they stay hidden through the night. When they return the next morning they expect to find police cars and ambulances. Instead, they come upon a new, pristine world, the year 1622, where all signs of the 21st century have disappeared. They come to believe that they have gone back in time and would have to find a way back to their old world. What follows is an adventure of escape, of staying out of Indian wars, of avoiding battles between vengeful Englishmen and Powhatans. Eventually Pius Bird learns that not all things are as they appear.

Aggression is a complex social behaviour with multiple causes. In psychology, as well as other social and behavioural sciences, aggression refers to behaviour between members of the same species that is intended to cause pain or harm. Aggression takes a variety of forms among humans and can be physical, mental, or verbal. Aggression should not be confused with assertiveness however, although the terms are often used interchangeably. There are two broad categories of aggression. These include hostile, affective, or retaliatory aggression and instrumental, predatory, or goal-oriented aggression. Empirical research indicates that there is a critical difference between the two, both psychologically and physiologically. Some research indicates that people with tendencies toward affective aggression have lower IQs than those with tendencies toward predatory aggression. If only considering physical aggression, males tend to be more aggressive than females. This new book gathers the latest research from around the world in this field.

Everyday Psychopaths is a collection of short stories that will both frighten you and make you laugh out loud. Warning: reading these three stories can make you sound like a crazy person. Kind of like an Everyday Psychopath... In Everyday Psychopaths you find three stories, all three of them containing an everyday psychopath of some kind. The first one is close to a horror story with a dose of dark humor, the short second one is more literary but scary in its own right, and the third one is all dark comedy. Included in this collection is also two samples of my novels, The Wake-Up Call and Hollywood Ass. I hope you like them enough to consider checking them out in full. The Stories in Everyday Psychopaths A Killer Date 30 minutes into the date, Sheila thinks there's magic in the air between her and Terry. She can hardly believe her luck to have met a man who seems to have everything. She wants to pinch her arm and ask herself if it's too good to be true, but if she did the answer would be: Yes, it is too good to be true, because the truth is actually horrifying... The Development Talk Jasper is in for his yearly development talk and he's feeling very uncomfortable about it. He usually doesn't like meetings and his manager, Stephen, is kind of creepy. Little does he know how creepy... The Worst/Best Day of My Life Sometimes one day is enough. One day can change your life from heaven to hell. Or vice versa. This is what happened to Joe in the craziest 24 hours of his life... The Wake-Up Call (sample) On the surface he has it all: the women, the career, and the Central Park view penthouse, but behind his well-groomed and chiseled facade he has nothing. At least this is what he's about to realize. Find out how Jack gets his life-changing wake-up call in this fast-paced, heartfelt and funny novel about soul-searching, friendship, and love. Hollywood Ass. (sample) A Hollywood superstar suffers a mental collapse, her marriage is falling apart, her career is on the ropes and the only one keeping it all together is her loyal assistant and friend, Darryl. Problem is, he's kind of in love with her. Soon he finds himself drawn into a story that is much like the movies his employer stars in. But in real life the answers aren't in the script...

Who do we love? Who loves us? And why? Is love really a mystery, or can neuroscience offer some answers to these age-old questions? In her third enthralling book about the brain, Judith Horstman takes us on a lively tour of our most important sex and love organ and the whole smorgasbord of our many kinds of love-from the bonding of parent and child to the passion of erotic love, the affectionate love of companionship, the role of animals in our lives, and the love of God. Drawing on the latest neuroscience, she explores why and how we are born to love-how we're hardwired to crave the companionship of others, and how very badly things can go without love. Among the findings: parental love makes our brain bigger, sex and orgasm make it healthier, social isolation makes it miserable-and although the craving for romantic love can be described as an addiction, friendship may actually be the most important loving relationship of your life. Based on recent studies and articles culled from the prestigious Scientific American and Scientific American Mind magazines, The Scientific American Book of Love, Sex, and the Brain offers a fascinating look at how the brain controls our loving relationships, most intimate moments, and our deep and basic need for connection.

Most women wouldn't expect a man to be cynically assessing their "usefulness" on a first date but that's how a psychopath thinks. Psychopaths are ruthless human predators. The man across the restaurant table is calculating, "Does she have what I need?" What is he after? It could be anything. A sexual partner, money he hopes to live off, access to a particular group of friends or colleagues, a willingness to help him climb the career ladder...or it could be something more basic: to provide a cover of respectability that will blind others to his predatory nature. A psychopath seduces his target by love-bombing her. Once he has figured out the kind of man who will appeal to her, this shape-shifter turns himself into the man of her dreams. He will pursue her ardently and obsessively. And once he has won the woman's heart, he will manipulate the relationship so that he extracts as much as he can while giving as little as possible. When the psychopath has exhausted what psychologists call "narcissistic supply," his true nature will be revealed. He will become cold, cruel and abusive to his partner. He will clean out the bank accounts and abandon her. In his lifetime a psychopath leaves behind a trail of emotional and financial wreckage. But, as the world-famous security expert Gavin de Becker observes, while "we cannot change or eliminate all the dangerous people in the world, we can change our ability to deal with them." In A Girls Guide to Predators: The Games Psychopaths and Narcissists Play, readers get advice from criminal experts and leading psychologists on how to recognize a typical psychopath before he gets the chance to play his mind games. Dr. George K. Simon, author of the international bestseller In Sheep's Clothing: Understanding and Dealing with Manipulative People writes: "Clearly, concisely written, and packed with useful information, Alison Summers lays out in very understandable terms exactly what the unsuspecting soul needs to know about the predators and other unsavory sorts among us."

In Fatal Females, investigative psychologist and former police profiler Micki Pistorius examines the minds and motives of women who kill. Throughout history the view seems to have prevailed that it is not in women's nature to commit violent crime, but Pistorius shows that this is not in fact the case. Women, givers of life, are indeed capable of ruthlessly taking life. She examines more than fifty documented cases of South African female killers, categorised according to the nature of the crime - for example, infanticide, spree killings, stalkers, poisoners - and she presents her new hypothesis to explain the psychology of that rare individual, the female serial killer.

How do Psychopaths Do it? From the most basic, superficial interactions, to the deepest, most earnest confessions of human emotion, psychopaths are the masters. They know what to say, how to say it, and when to do it. They can take the honest feelings of others and warp them. They can take the good-natured words, actions, and attitudes of 'normal' people... and destroy them. But how do they do it? Everywhere you look, a psychopath lurks. Some are notorious serial killers, determined to torture the mind and body of the innocent. But others--most others--are not nearly so infamous. Many psychopaths are masters of business leadership. Many have reached pinnacles of corporate success, disguising their mental illness behind the façade of strong women and alpha males. Truth be told, psychopaths are nothing like the rest of us. They wear our clothes, our masks, our gestures and our facial expressions. But they are not one of us. They are chameleons, impostors, charlatans. They slide into society, winning us over with their charisma, climbing to positions of power, earning love, lust and trust at every conceivable turn. They are everywhere doing everything--and hellbent on continuing. If you struggle to understand how psychopaths succeed while others fall to the wayside, you aren't alone. Despite their sickening pathology, psychopaths have something to teach us. Their lessons are ingrained in the very fibers of our being, the psychology of our survival. And somewhere, deep inside those dark corners of the human mind, the truth is hiding. It's time to shine a light in the dark...

“All sickness is not physical” is a book that I have desired to write because of the controversial issues that surround the issue of sickness and disease. I believe that I have been given a profound revelation about the subject. Because there are so many points of view about this subject matter, it has almost become disheartening to discuss it, therefore, many people will never receive the healing they seek. In this simplistic but informative and inspiring book, I desire to share with you the revelation knowledge that God has given me to challenge you to look at sickness and disorders differently not to feel guilty, or condemned, but to be informed and released from the insidious strongholds that plague us and hinders us from living the quality life intended.
