Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go to Work by Paul Babiak and Robert D. Hare

Snakes in Suits (2006) examines what happens when a psychopath doesn’t wind up in jail, but instead puts on a suit and gets a job. The book outlines the tactics these predators use, how they damage companies and how you can protect yourself.

  • Anyone who thinks their boss, colleague, subordinate, friend or partner may be a psychopath
  • Anyone who wants to know how to protect themselves or their company from the destructive influence of psychopaths
