Praise for "Confessions of a Sociopath""[A] gripping and important book...revelatory...quite the memorable roller coaster ride."--"New York Times Book Review ""[F]ascinating...part memoir, part psychological treatise, and entirely not to be trusted."--"Boston Globe""The goal of "Confessions" is to redefine sociopathy--or at least to shake off the stigma associated with it. And Thomas accomplishes both. Through her honest portrayal of herself as a highly capable yet deeply flawed individual, she demystifies her disorder."--"Scientific American""[F]ascinating stuff, and Thomas delivers...riveting...chilling....Her incisive observations about human nature can be breathtakingly pointed."--"Cleveland Plain Dealer""An essential, unprecedented memoir...intelligent, measured...[H]er arguments against using the diagnosis as an indicator of evil or a pre-emptive reason to imprison are a slam-dunk. This is a critical addition to narratives of mental illness, deepened by the awareness that we're reading someone whose most intense motivation is 'acquisition, retention, and exploitation of power'."--"Publishers Weekly", starred review"Fascinating and compelling as well as chilling, Thomas' memoir offers a window into the mind of a portion of the population that usually remains shrouded in mystery and fear."--"Booklist", starred review"[Thomas] invites us into her courtroom, classroom and bedroom to witness how her behavior has stunted her work life and made her love life difficult....Much here is chilling, but there are also cracks that make you ache for her....A work of advocacy for greater awareness of sociopathy's reach and conduct."--"Kirkus Reviews"Reseña del editor:
M. E. Thomas is a high-functioning non-criminal sociopath. She is charismatic, ambitious and successful. You would be charmed by her if you met her, might even be seduced by her. You would not realise that she is studying you to find your flaws, that she is ruthlessly manipulative, has no empathy and does not feel guilt or remorse. But she does like people - she likes to touch them, mould them and ruin them. She could be your friend or your boss. She could be you . . .
Now she writes with breathtaking honesty about her life. She also draws on the latest research to explain why at least one in twenty-five of us are sociopaths - and shows why that's not a bad thing. By turns fascinating, shocking and funny, Confessions of a Sociopath is a gripping insight into the mind of a self-confessed predator.
'Gripping and important . . . revelatory . . . quite the memorable roller coaster ride' Jon Ronson, author of The Psychopath Test, for New York Times Book Review
'Fascinating . . . That the author is female somehow makes Confessions of a Sociopath all the more chilling' Boston Globe
