Workplace psychopaths exist in a variety of workplaces. They are individuals who manipulate their way through life and leave an indelible mark on both their victims and society. They are destructive men and women – cunning, self-centred, ruthless and terrifying. They make working life a living hell for many of us. What motivates these individuals? How can you protect yourself from these "monsters" who hide behind a veneer of respectability?

With new case studies, "frequently asked questions" from victims and key tips on spotting/identifying the workplace psychopath, Dr John Clarke shows you how to recognise and manage a workplace psychopath within your midst.
