Publisher's Summary

You might wonder why you need to know how to identify narcissists, psychopaths, Machiavellians, and sadists.

The Dark Triad is a theory of evolution that indicates that traits of psychopathy, narcissism, and manipulativeness are becoming more and more prevalent in our society. These cut-throat personalities are designed by evolution to be physically and emotionally strong, to survive at all costs, and to get ahead financially.

They have the reproductive advantage by being aggressive, committing mate poaching, and hoarding resources.

Learning how to expose these "dark" personality traits in others may protect you from getting into a relationships or friendship with the wrong person. If you are a social and emotional person, you are a prime target for the dark triad types. You have what they want, and they know that they can bend your emotions and your social connections to easily steal it away from you without any guilt or remorse. They will run through your village, raping, plundering, and pillaging until everything you have is theirs.

Paying attention to the dark triad of personality traits can help to call out the most dangerous people in our society in just a glance, or at least after you ask them a few questions about their lifestyle and habits. Being aware of the dark triad personality traits will protect you from being manipulated, conned out of your money and your job, and from losing your own fragile sanity. These signs will help protect you from losing your children, suffering death, and suffering injury at the hands of a manipulative and Machiavellian personality.

Hanging around a bad or dark person can cause us to suffer extreme damage to our own motivation, energy levels, and hope for the future. There are many bad people in the world who are waiting to pounce on those who are unaware, innocent, and easily manipulated. If you don't know the signs and the harmful individuals that you might run into, odds are good

Short Introduction to the Dark Triad

As a quick, half-hour introduction to the "dark triad", this isn't bad. The author uses simple, everyday language to present the material. It's concise and understandable in outlining the key concepts regarding these maladies.

I was distracted by the narrator's slow presentation and nasal-y voice, unfortunately.

Review of Audiobook

The book was excellent and describes exactly to the point what the dark triad is. After you listen to this book and have someone like this in your life, you should do everything in your power to stay away from toxic people like this rather they are in your family or inner circle. As the old saying goes “Buyer Beware”. Thank you J. B. Snow for providing this information and exposing the dark triad.

Interesting, if somewhat disconcerting.

Forewarned is forearmed, apparently, though I'll still need to develop eyes in the back of my head. Many of the traits described could easily be attributed to any number of people, though the more 'characteristics' that can be ascribed to any one individual, the closer that individual will come to any particular diagnosis. That's probably a healthy way of looking at this.
