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.

Editorial Reviews

"An amazing book." -Michael M. Baden, MD, former chief medical examiner, City of New York"This book nails it! I wholeheartedly recommend it because, in many instances, we are all either victims or potential victims of dangerous personalities." -Susan Sexton, legal scholar and former judge in the 13th Judicial District, Florida"As riveting as a true crime thriller and as lifesaving as a self-help detox book. Every woman should read this." -Dr. Wendy Walsh, host of Investigation Discovery Network's Happily Never After"Having spent the last 34 years responding to crisis incidents involving dangerous personalities, I can attest to the amazing insight provided by Joe Navarro in this landmark book. Well-known characters from Hollywood fiction and real-life historical figures provide clear examples and show us the warning signs. A must-read for anyone interested in understanding and dealing with dangerous personalities." -Gary Noesner, chief, FBI Crisis Negotiation Unit (ret.), and author of Stalling for Time"Joe Navarro opens your eyes to these toxic individuals who wreck so many lives physically, emotionally, spiritually, even financially. What society is often unwilling to acknowledge or recognize, Joe exposes for all to see with one intention--to save lives." -Laura Quiñones Urquiza, diplomat in Criminology, University Institute of Argentine Federal Police"There are a variety of tools and books to assess the risk of violence, but few books are as accessible and useful in the everyday life." -Michel St-Yves, forensic psychologist, Quebec"A must-read. Readers will learn how to avoid the pitfalls of trust, fraud, and deceit and the emotional tolls dangerous personalities levy on their victims." -Werner U. Spitz, MD, forensic pathologist, Michigan
