Zitat

"Dr. Paris has written a wise and well informed book that will help readers understand and avoid the problems created by DSM-5(r)." -- Allen J. Frances, MD
"With this superb new volume, Donald Black has managed to produce an authoritative book on antisocial personality disorder and psychopathy that promises to be a valuable resource for partners and families of those touched by this disorder. In an accessible and jargon-free prose style that is a pleasure to read, the author describes the clinical picture, the causes, the outcomes and potential treatments of antisocial individuals. He also educates the public on the so-called "white collar sociopaths" who are hiding in plain sight. Mental health and medical professionals will gain as much from reading this outstanding contribution as the general public. I heartily recommend it." -- Glen O.
