Charming, charismatic, and delightful or manipulative, self-serving, and cunning? Psychopaths are both and that’s exactly what makes them dangerous. Bestselling author of the international phenomenon Surrounded by Idiots, Thomas Erikson reveals how to identify the psychopaths in your life and combat their efforts to control and manipulate.

 

Using the same simple four-color system of behavior classification that made Surrounded by Idiots so popular, Surrounded by Psychopaths teaches readers how to deal with psychopaths in their lives by becoming aware of their own behavior and their weaknesses. Vivid example stories illustrate ways that psychopaths can take advantage of various behavior types, helping readers identify their own weaknesses and be proactive about protecting themselves. Erikson outlines some of the most common forms of manipulation used by psychopaths—and others—to influence those around them. Since manipulation can often be a feature of ordinary, non-psychopathic relationships, the book also includes practical methods and techniques to help readers confront controlling people and rehabilitate negative relationships into mutually respectful ones.

By understanding your behavior as well as the tendencies and strategies of psychopaths, Surrounded by Psychopaths will teach you to protect yourself from manipulative influence in your workplace, social life, and family.

Reviews: 

“Amazing! 5 out of 5. This is not just a book about psychopaths, but also a book about manipulation and how people use others. Erikson mixes both theory with examples of practical advice on how to avoid getting manipulated. Easy to read. Easy to understand, informative and pedagogical. At times it was even a bit suspenseful and entertaining.”  – Viktor Nilsson, reader’s comment

 

”The continuation to Surrounded by Idiots. In this book Thomas Erikson discusses how one can detect and face a manipulative behavior. Interesting but also creepy and scary.”

”It was good how Thomas Erikson brought up the fact that psychopaths life among us. They’re not all in prison. Instead they could be a colleague, your boss or a person at the grocery store. This book was a true eye opener and I recommend both of the author’s books for anyone who’s interested in human behavior.” Sarasbokhylla, book blog Sweden.
