Confessions of a Sociopath

A Life Spent Hiding In Plain Sight

3.09 based on 5038 ratings & 860 reviews on Goodreads.com

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
New York Times Book Review
Fascinating . . . That the author is female somehow makes Confessions of a Sociopath all the more chilling
