When most people think “psychopath,” images of Hannibal Lecter or some other mass murderer come to mind. But Dr. Babiak and Dr. Hare share that many psychopaths just want money or power or fame. And to achieve that, they often head to the corporate world. The authors reveal the ways that psychopaths use greed culture to their advantage, and often emerge as rising corporate stars because of their willingness to take big risks and their instinctual skills of manipulation. Learning the warning signs of such behavior will not only allow your students to put the recent economic crisis and some of its key players in perspective, but also protect themselves in their future career endeavors.
