    1. Serial fillerFORMER English rugby coach Clive Woodward may have been some type of psychopath. Unfortunately to find out which type may involve reading this book. The author is a ‘consultant psychological profiler’ circling big government and even bigger business much like a forensic vulture.Here he combines pseudo-science, relentless jargon and banal management conceptualising to bring you Working with Monsters. The book has an admirable purpose - intending to show readers how to identify an [...]

    2. Inicialmente, é frustrante descobrir que este livro (de 105 páginas) é a tradução de "Pocket Psycho" (160 páginas), e não de "Working with Monsters" (264 páginas).De qualquer forma, o que o autor coloca reflete, infelizmente, uma personalidade e um comportamento relativamente comuns em ambientes de trabalho hierarquizados e politizados: o psicopata corporativo.O livro deixa claro que você não estará apto a diagnosticar psicopatias após uma leitura tão breve, mas ajudará a detectar [...]

    3. Written for the layperson, this book is about recognising and dealing with a psychopath in the work place. The different types are identified and how to protect oneself from them is discussed. I liked that this was an Australian author and that he included examples of situations, workplaces and outcomes. I have worked and socialised with a psychopath so a lot of this book was highly pertinent. I do like that there was a section included that covered other personality disorders that people may mi [...]

    4. This was a very enjoyable book to read and anybody who works in an office of a Government department will relate to it. I'm not sure though about the marketing of the book. The front cover of the book, and the title itself gives the impression that it is some type of light hearted look at a real issue and it is not. In my view it is a serious attempt to identify some people in the workplace who are making it hell for others. It is well written and not in a "text" type so the lay person can easil [...]

    5. Interesting views on psychopathy. As life goes on you realise the world is full of psychopaths, and the best way of dealing with them is understand how they think; very interesting read.

    6. This book is inspiring if you are going through a dark time at work. It has inspired me to take such actions as to leave my job and let everyone know why and to keep alert of any future actions that this workplace bully can bring on.However, as much as this book is insightful, there are some characteristics of subtypes that can relate to a normal human without psychopathy or mental disorders (slightly condredictive and over generalised) In saying that I'm not a psychiatrist and haven't experien [...]

    7. This book is fantastic for understanding of the workplace psychopath - a real occurrence, a real disease! It helps make an informed decision about about how to understand the workplace psychopath, and whether you can do anything about it - whether you are a boss with a person like this under you, or whether your boss is a control freak! It helped me immensely - these people are more common than you think, and in most cases, there are ways to dull the frustration of these people in your life. Hig [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this book - it was written very well, but not so academic as to make me feel like I was reading a txt for work. I really enjoyed the writers intrepretation and supposition of the different character's one can come across at work and I found it valuable for when I was working in a particular organisation in 2007 ;-)

    9. Sort of book everyone really needs to read. Every one of us has experienced the Psychopath and the best way to avoid them is to understand them.

    10. This book's title suggests that it is particular to workplace psychopaths; however, there is also very valuable information on organisational psychopaths that I found most helpful.
