"Written in clear and simple language, this book encapsulates and renders accessible otherwise complicated terms and relational paradigms." * Erma Cooper *
"With an energetic mix of scientific research and revealing real-life experiences, Tim and Jane McGregor get beyond the obvious traits of sociopathic behaviour, to explore its effects on those who live and work with them." * Louise Chunn, founder, wellbeing.org *
"Revelational and helpful. It explained for the first time a bullying process I had been subjected to, as a professional in an empathic profession. All it takes for evil to flourish is a few people to do nothing." * Deirdre Boyd, CEO, Addiction Recovery Foundation *
"A must-read for anyone who has lived through the nightmare of a sociopathic encounter." * 'Peace', author of "Psychopath Free" *
