That's about two million Americans. And they are our bosses, our politicians, our priests, and our neighbors. And they are running our economy and our lives. Every day in the news we hear about people in positions of power doing deplorable things--in business, politics, and government, from sexual harassment to polluting the environment to covering up crimes. And it's no wonder considering a small percentage of people wield a largeamount of power, and that these very same peoplefit the definition of a "psychopath." A highly engaging and gripping read,Cameron Reilly's book adds toour growing understanding of sociopaths with a detailed analysis of how our society encourages and rewards psychopathic tendencies, and how, because of this,psychopaths the world over have risen to power.
