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.
"Clear and complete, this is a handy overview for managers and HR, with enough "self-defense" techniques to help coworkers from getting bit." (Publishers Weekly)

What if there’s a Psychopath in the Next Cubicle?
Could have done this book in two chapters
I enjoyed it for what it was but it was so redundant - making the same point over and over. It left you confused about whether it was supposed to be a professional book or whether I was even supposed to be reading it as a normal person.
Yeah - he was a good narrator
Not at all. Save your time, google what the characteristics of a psychopatch are, and get a different book
