This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

Psychopaths are everywhere. They are your toxic boss, controlling boyfriend, lazy colleague, annoying mother-in-law and negligent friend - the person who gets away with bad behaviour time and time again. While often superficially charming, they are also rude, aggressive, manipulative, duplicitous and dishonest.

Five per cent of the population is psychopathic, which means they are missing the critical human ingredient of empathy. Because they are programmed to put themselves first, these people routinely disrupt and even destroy relationships and organisations, seemingly without consequence.

Drawing on the latest science, bestselling author David Gillespie offers a detailed and practical guide to identifying the psychopath in your midst, then managing the behaviour to minimise the effect on your family, workplace, friendship group or community organisation.

Praise for Taming Toxic People

'This compelling study and guidebook is a must-have for anyone who has a pathologically difficult individual in their life.' Kim Williams

'Gillespie is academically gifted, a linguist, excellent at most things he turns his mind to ... he's a polymath, an old-fashioned Renaissance man, who finds few things dull and everything else interesting.' Courier Mail

'David Gillespie has done a tremendous service to the general public in writing this book.' Huffpost
