5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for surviving an encounter with a sociopath., 4 July 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sociopath Next Door (Kindle Edition)
This is a great read for someone who is getting divorced from a husband who I believe is a sociopath. When reading about characteristics if a sociopath in the book you can literally tick them off one by one as I can see and have experienced them in my soon to be ex-husband.
I've not been able to confide in many, even therapists seem a bit fazed when I've spoken to them about my experience, but this book has supported my understanding of sociopathy and how to survive an encounter with a sociopath.
It's true that they lie as if it's second nature without batting an eyelid, cheat, steal, put on the waterworks to manipulate you and your loved ones that even your own mother and grandmother believe their lies over you ( I have lived this).
This book gives hope and reassures you that you're not bonkers and how to move on and protect yourself from any future encounters.

Sorry to hear about your ex husband - and about the not-so-good-experience with your therapists... You used 'plural' so I assume you had 'a few'. I studied Counselling (level 2) and the majority of them are so called 'humanistic' -which is the backdrop to all types of counselling.
Unfortunately they believe that 'people are OK' and this mainstream approach denies pathology such as depression or personality disorders. Unless you have a psycho-dynamic (Freud) or a cognitive behavioural therapist -someone who is more knowledgeable, intellectual and pragmatic - you will have this attitude with the majority of therapists. I would also like to mention that the profession 'therapist' or 'counselling' is not a protected term such as psychologist - no formal qualification is needed to become one. Keep on reading if it helps -there are so many great books such as 'Getting Past Your Past' (S. Elliott) or 'Who Is Pulling Your Strings' (H. Braiker)
