Sociopath

Many have heard of NXIVM and its creator, Keith Raniere, the unassuming Albany man now prosecuted for ensnaring tens of thousands of people in the US, Mexico, Canada and elsewhere, to do his bidding and pay millions of dollars to participate in his self-improvement methodology. But where did Keith Raniere begin?

Enter Toni Natalie, Keith's Patient Zero, the first one indoctrinated into Raniere's methodology and the first one to escape.

She writes about it in "The Program: Inside the Mind of Keith Raniere and the Rise and Fall of NXIVM." She has written the book with investigative journalist Chet Hardin.  

In his new book, A Generation of Sociopaths, author Bruce Cannon Gibney looks to show how America was hijacked by Baby Boomers, a generation, he believes, whose reckless self-indulgence degraded the foundations of American prosperity. A former partner in a leading venture capital firm, Gibney examines the policies of the most powerful generation in modern history, saying Boomers enriched themselves at the expense of future generations.

Gibney says acting without empathy, prudence, or respect for facts--acting, in other words, as sociopaths--the Boomers turned American dynamism into stagnation, inequality, and bipartisan fiasco. Gibney argues that younger generations have a window to hold the Boomers accountable and begin restoring America.

Bruce Gibney is a writer and venture capitalist, working at a hedge fund and as a partner at one of Silicon Valley’s leading venture firms, Founders Fund. 

  Lisa Scottoline's best-selling and award-winning novels have been hailed as a centrifuge of fast-paced and nerve-wracking suspense. Bringing emotional charged questions of family, relationships, and justice to light, her deeply developed characters are both flawed and sympathetic.

In her new novel, Every Fifteen Minutes, Scottoline draws readers into the mind of a sociopath - who seems set on deliberately and methodically destroying a man's life.
