"Does the following person sound familiar? * He/she works inside many of Australia's businesses and corporations. * He/she intimidates fellow workers. * He/she exhibits impulsive behaviour. * He/she demonstrates a lack of remorse. * He/she is glib and superficially charming. Who is he/she? Workplace psychopaths exist in a variety of workplaces. They are individuals who manipulate their way through life and leave an indelible mark on both their victims and society. They are destructive men and women - cunning, self-centered, ruthless and terrifying. They make working life a living hell for many of us. What motivates these individuals? How can you protect yourself from these 'monsters' who hide behind a veneer of respectability? Working With Monsters provides a fascinating insight into the mind of the workplace psychopath. Drawing on his studies and research in forensic psychology, and experience in criminal profiling for law enforcement agencies as well as corporations experiencing difficulties with an employee, Dr John Clarke shows you how to recognise and manage a workplace psychopath within your midst. Don't be a victim - be wise to their tricks!"
As above, some of the most vicious people in work places are the women - this book barely mentions women
They are out there
I have worked with these people and this book gave me the tools to be able to deal with them and make my life easier and less stressful

Bought for Friend
Saw the title and pre-read of this and thought that it would be an excellent birthday present for a friend who has been having problems with a co-worker...it was priceless to see her reaction when she unwrapped it....I honestly think it would be a great read.

Loved the book. Anyone working in a large organisation would have experienced one of the monsters described in the book. The book is informative, well written and inspirational for anyone working with a difficult person/s. Well worth a read and highly recommended.
