Let's say you're about to hire somebody for a position in your company. Your corporation wants someone who's fearless, charismatic, and full of new ideas. Candidate X is charming, smart, and has all the right answers to your questions. Problem solved, right? Maybe not. Psychopaths may enter as rising stars and corporate saviors, but all too soon they're abusing the trust of colleagues, manipulating supervisors, and leaving the workplace in shambles. In Snakes in Suits, corporate psychologist Dr. Paul Babiak teams up with psychopathy expert Dr. Robert Hare to focus on the psychopath's role in modern corporations. They found that it's exactly the modern, open, more flexible corporate world that is the perfect breeding ground for these employees. Snakes in Suits reveals psychopaths' secrets, introduces the ways in which they manipulate and deceive, and helps listeners see through their games. It is a compelling, frightening, and scientifically sound look at exactly how psychopaths work in the corporate environment, teaching you how they apply their "instinctive" manipulation techniques to business processes. It's a must listen for anyone in the business world, making you aware of the subtle warning signs of psychopathic behavior-before it's too late. Download and start listening now!

    " Hare and Babiak are the experts in the area of psychopaths! I love readiing about personality disorders, but then again I am a psych major! There were some points when the book dragged, especially when they had a plan for employers. I don't currently own a business, and am not in business of human resources, so this part was a little slow for me. It was full of wonderful information to help people identify manipulators and harmful people in their lives. Even if the person isn't a psychopath, they might be manipulative and hurt you! Knowing how to protect yourself is important, and thanks the Hare and Babiak, I am now more informed! "

    " I really enjoy how the author weaves short vignettes about psychopaths in the workplace into his more intellectual discussion of the phenomenon! Excellent! "

    " Good concept and the writing is 'good'. Problem is that it's kind of an academic topic. To make it more marketable it looks like the editors/publishers (?) interspersed the rather interesting facts with an episodic narrative. This fills out the text, but takes an interesting subject and converts it into a tedious read more suitable for the pre-teen set. But considering it is a 'business' book, that's probably the most appropriate reading level. "
