Many of the world’s leading organisations (business, political, religious, military, media and law enforcement) are being run by senior management who probably rank highly on the psychopath test.
Psychopaths aren’t all serial killers. Many of them wear a suit or uniform and work in an office. Their inherent ability to lie, cheat and steal make them the perfect manager. They have the perfect combination of heartlessness and ambition. We’ve all worked with or for one of them. Everyone has a story.
And yet…. we don’t talk about it out in the open. The media doesn’t seem to have connected the existence of psychopaths and a possible reason why the leaders of our economies act erratically and with so little empathy.
This book is the first systematic attempt to derive a model that explains how and why psychopaths are allowed to occupy positions of power in society.
