Level 3:

The Psychopath Epidemic: Why the World Is So F*cked Up and What You Can Do About It

Reilly, Cameron

2020, January 7

psychopath epidemic

A disturbing look at the psychopaths who run the world… And how to survive their influence.

Psychiatrists estimate that 1 percent of the adult population are psychopaths. That’s about 50 to 60 million psychopaths worldwide. Two million psychopaths in America alone. They crave power. They feign charm. They have zero empathy, don’t feel guilt, and think of themselves as inherently superior to the people around them.

Despite the impression Hollywood might give us, most psychopaths are not serial killers. These “garden-variety psychopaths” are our managers, our politicians, our priests, and our police chiefs. There’s a good chance they are working in the White House, the Vatican, the Pentagon, and the boardroom.

They are running our economy and our lives.

This highly engaging and gripping read provides a detailed analysis of how our society encourages and rewards psychopathic tendencies and how, because of this, psychopaths the world over have risen to power. Reilly offers a field guide to psychopaths — how to spot them and the organizations they run — so we can avoid the inevitable damage of their worst impulses.

It’s the first book to examine the shocking evidence that the world faces a psychopath epidemic and then suggest practical solutions for what we can do about it.
