Publisher's Summary

Modern permissiveness and the new culture of entitlement allows disturbed people to reach adulthood without proper socialization. In a book meant both for the general public and for professionals, best-selling author and psychologist George Simon explains in plain English:

  • How most disturbed characters think
  • The habitual behaviors the disturbed use to avoid responsibility and to manipulate, deceive, and exploit others
  • Why victims in relationships with disturbed characters do not get help they need from traditional therapies
  • A straightforward guide to recognizing and understanding all relevant personality types, especially those most likely to undermine relationships
  • A new framework for making sense of the crazy world many find themselves in when there's a disturbed character in their lives
  • Concrete principles that promote responsibility and positive change when engaging disturbed characters
  • Tactics (for both lay persons and therapists) to lessen the chances for victimization and empower those who would otherwise be victims in their relationships with many types of disturbed characters

Outstanding instruction for the times we live in!

The narrator was easy to listen to and conveyed the material with appropriate voice inflection.
As a veteran law enforcement officer approaching retirement their is a crucial need for this instruction. Judges and law enforcement alike could benefit from recognizing and in dealing with these types of personalities.

This author has nailed the portrait of character disturbance. As a survivor/former friend of an individual who is the epitome of a Helion --It made me feel heard, gave me a voice and put a name to many faces I saw come out of 1 human being which literally drained me. This book is so insightful and has helped me make sense of the abuse I endured. Definitely helps with the healing process for anybody going thru a relationship with a covert narcissist or sociopath in their life. its not just labeling--its about character reinforcement. Also helped me to analyze my behavior more constructively. Thank you!
