Review

Praise for Confessions of a Sociopath

"[A] gripping and important book...revelatory...quite the memorable roller coaster ride." --New York Times Book Review

"Fascinating...part memoir, part psychological treatise, and entirely not to be trusted." --Boston Globe

"The goal of Confessions is to redefine sociopathy--or at least to shake off the stigma associated with it. And Thomas accomplishes both. Through her honest portrayal of herself as a highly capable yet deeply flawed individual, she demystifies her disorder." --Scientific American

"Fascinating stuff, and Thomas delivers...riveting...chilling...Her incisive observations about human nature can be breathtakingly pointed." --Cleveland Plain Dealer

"An essential, unprecedented memoir...intelligent, measured...Her arguments against using the diagnosis as an indicator of evil or a pre-emptive reason to imprison are a slam-dunk. This is a critical addition to narratives of mental illness, deepened by the awareness that we're reading someone whose most intense motivation is 'acquisition, retention, and exploitation of power'." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Fascinating and compelling as well as chilling, Thomas' memoir offers a window into the mind of a portion of the population that usually remains shrouded in mystery and fear." --Booklist, starred review

"[Thomas] invites us into her courtroom, classroom and bedroom to witness how her behavior has stunted her work life and made her love life difficult...Much here is chilling, but there are also cracks that make you ache for her....A work of advocacy for greater awareness of sociopathy's reach and conduct." --Kirkus Reviews

Book Description

A compelling, extraordinary memoir into life as a diagnosed sociopath.
