The Psychology of a Psychopath.,
This review is from: Be the Worst You Can Be: Life's Too Long for Patience and Virtue (Flexibound)
This book is really interesting if you want to dip into the mind of a psychopath, and makes a good companion piece to 'Without Conscience: The Disturbing World of the Psychopaths Among Us' by Robert D. Hare. A narcissistic eulogy to the author's venal vanity, ego, and celebration of power for it's own sake, combined with a contemptuous dismissal of others, who he views as inferior, and the common values that most of society respects. Of course, as if often the way with psychopaths, it is often said in a style that is supposed to be viewed as glibly humorous - until that is you see a photograph with the author with his hands around the throat of his wife, twisting her nose, and covering her mouth so she is unable to speak, and you realism he means it all. He really does mean it all.

I have not read the book, and would only do so if given to me for free; but just from the little I've read about it, it seems to be the thinking of a sociopath.

Especially if the 'hands around the throat, the twisting of the nose and the covering of the mouth' is planned by man and wife, oh look, there's a photographer - to raise said wife's profile...
