Sue Baker's view...

Estimated at one in twenty five of the population a sociopathic personality is therefore alien to the majority who will find it something of a shock to read M.E Thomas’ account of her life. Most chilling to experience is her view of “us” as fodder to be used and manipulated, although it is poignant to read her analysis of the childhood that exacerbated a possible genetic trend. Do sociopaths see life as it is really is, do “we” see life as it should be, M E Thomas gives an insight into that other world that of the sociopath albeit as the self-described high-functioning, non-criminal variety

Synopsis

Confessions of a Sociopath A Life Spent Hiding in Plain Sight by M. E. Thomas

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.

Fascinating ... That the author is female somehow makes Confessions of a Sociopath all the more chilling - Boston Globe
