Confessions of a Sociopath: A Life Spent Hiding in Plain Sight Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Pseudonymous author M.E. Thomas paints for the casual observer an illustration of the world of the sociopath. Bereft of the inborn empathic abilities that most people possess, Thomas used her considerable aptitudes to create a functional, albeit predatory, life for herself — a life anchored in rules arrived at through applied reason rather than in morals. Narrator Bernadette Sullivan's coolly amused tone effectively conveys Thomas's charming, detached observations about her life. Calm and self-possessed, Sullivan leads us through Thomas's narrative as the sociopath speculates about the causes of sociopathy, its implications, and the impact it has had on her life. By turns a confession, an examination, and a self-justification, the veracity of Thomas's narrative is open to question — she is a self-confessed liar and manipulator — but however fictional or distorted the story may be, Sullivan's presentation of it is undeniably seductive. A Crown hardcover. (May)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

M. E. Thomas is a diagnosed sociopath and the founder of SociopathWorld.com. But she is not a killer. Quite the contrary, she is an accomplished attorney and law professor who writes regularly for major law journals, donates 10 percent of her income to charity, and teaches Sunday School.
