We seem to wake up to a new tragedy in the news every day--Newtown, Boston, Aurora, Columbine. So often the reporters say that "there were some signs, but nobody acted." The scary part about these tragedies is that less than 1% of criminals are incarcerated for their crimes, meaning that for every headline, there are millions of dangerous situations in which average people find themselves. On top of that, how can ordinary people identify threats from those who may not hurt them physically but can devastate their lives on a daily basis--the crazy coworkers, out-of control family members, or relentless neighbors? In Dangerous Personalities, former FBI profiler Joe Navarro shows readers how to identify the four most common "dangerous personalities" and analyze how much of a threat each one can be: the Narcissist, the Predator, the Paranoid, and the Unstable Personality. Along the way, readers learn how to protect themselves both immediately and long-term--as well as how to recover from the trauma of being close to such a destructive force.

Better safe than sorry & this author shows you how to do that!! He pulls no punches [pun intended] & points out statistically certain people are just more dangerous to be around!! I suppose this will upset some people who will call it "profiling" but that is what the FBI does to protect us, they have profilers!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's written in a manner that doesn't require extensive knowledge of psychology. By avoiding common diagnostic words, the author is able to provide characteristics that we might notice in those around us. If you're only going to skim through, read each section titled "Words commonly used to describe ..." and read Chapter 6 about how to handle dangerous individuals.

Loved this book and will probably buy my own copy. Well written, no fluff. Gives very clear descriptions on several types of dangerous people and how to identify them and avoid being a victim.
