I don't understand this, and maybe it's just me.
As a master of manipulation and versatility, how in the f*ck would a 'normal' be able to even attempt to compete with a pscyhopath?
I am well aware when someone is talking to me in a way that is other than genuine. I can tell if someone is trying to lead me, or trying to avoid me. I can tell by body language, voice tones, facial expressions and general behavior. Being that I study every person I am around. I watch their every move and gesture. I listen in on conversations. I listen when people talk to me. I evaluate what people are saying and how they are saying it.
So what book is really going to help you? The best book in the world for this would have one sentence: If you feel you are in the presence of a psychopath/sociopath (AsPD obviously, but just using laymans terms), be nice and thoughtful, but not trusting. Is this the sheeps guide to avoiding wolves? ha! good luck with that.
Oh wait. I know. Don't go out alone.. little sheepy sheep.
