"Authors Dr. Jane McGregor and Tim McGregor present The Sociopath At the Breakfast Table providing readers with a complete guide of how to spot, avoid, and remove sociopaths from their lives. With a full profile of common sociopathic traits - such as a victimization, learned helplessness, shallowness, aggression, lack of remorse, etc. - readers will be able to easily identify the dangerous people in their lives. There is also an Empathy Quotient quiz included which helps measure a person's level of empathy. It shows readers where they are on the empathy spectrum and how likely they are to be the target of a sociopath. Armed with these helpful tools, readers can feel secure knowing they are protecting themselves and their loved ones from manipulative and abusive people. This book is geared to help those currently in a relationship with a sociopath and to forewarn others, who want to avoid sociopaths, with the knowledge of how to reduce their chances of becoming a sociopath's next target. The entire range of an abusive relationship is covered: the beginning stages of manipulation, dealing with the anger and guilt following the end of the relationship, and how to regain control and move on. Along the way, the authors provide readers with easy, manageable, step-by-step techniques and instructions"--
"Sociopaths can be found in every facet of life: personal relationships, work, school, and family. Most people have been in a relationship or interacted with more than one sociopath in their lifetime, often not recognizing their danger until it was too late. The Sociopath At the Breakfast Table breaks new ground in the field of abusive relationships. It presents an emerging theory about sociopathic interaction: SEAT, or the "Sociopath-Empath-Apath Triad." With this new found understanding of how sociopaths worm their way into people's lives, readers can use the tips and techniques found in this book to protect themselves from potential harm. More importantly, the authors show how empathy can be used as an antidote to sociopathic abuse - thus, victims are able to seize back power and ultimately regain control over their lives. This book presents readers information and tips on every aspect of interactions with a sociopath, from avoiding meeting one, to getting rid of them, dealing with the aftermath, and regaining control of their life"--
