Brutally honest and scathingly funny, The Sociopath’s Guide to Getting Ahead is a practical satire that holds a funhouse mirror to American business and political culture. It is the first book to call out the new, “scientifically” grounded insights of social psychology for what they are: tips for the dark art of manipulation.
Filled with surprising cameo appearances from Dostoyevsky, Plato, Robert Greene, Dale Carnegie, and Malcolm Gladwell, it provides the skills you need to succeed (and, just as importantly, to keep others down). In a time where even our leaders show it is OK to do whatever it takes to get ahead, The Sociopath’s Guide to Getting Ahead is the only tool you need to make sure you come out on top.
