Reviews

"Antisocial personality disorder (APD)-the condition one sees in the sociopath next door, the label applied by Martha Stout in her book by the same title (2005), or in mild psychopaths, as Kantor (psychiatrist, trainer of psychiatrists at various hospitals) labels them-is currently a hot topic in clinical psychology. Individuals with APD can wreak havoc on communities. These individuals are not psychopathic serial killers. Rather, these are neighbors who blast their horns at drivers who do not get moving . . . turn up their personal stereos . . . yell into their cell phones . . . rev up their motorcycles at night . . . or put their dogs to sleep because they bark too much. Kantor does a thorough job of describing mild psychopaths and their behavior while differentiating them from those with APD and other disorders. He provides a thorough examination of the etiology, personality structure, and course/prognosis of this disorder and finishes with excellent chapters on therapy with mild psychopaths and a six-step method for helping victims cope with the psychopathy of everyday life. . . . Essential. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals; general readers." - Choice
"Practitioner and author Kantor explains how to recognize, understand and cope with mild psychopaths, including politicians who lie, sales people who push bad products, Internet cruisers who are in reality identity thieves. He also helps define the difference between being a psychopath and being successful in Western society. He describes behaviors, the core personality structures, associated and overlapping disorders, social issues and successful psychopaths, causes, course of the disease and diagnosis, therapy and coping mechanisms." - SciTech Book News
"[K]antor has taken on an important and difficult subject." - PsycCritiques
