about

Revised and updated with the latest scientific research and updated case studies, the business classic that offers a revealing look at psychopaths in the workplace—how to spot their destructive behavior and stop them from creating chaos in the modern corporate organization.

Over the past decade, Snakes in Suits has become the definitive book on how to discover and defend yourself against psychopaths in the office. Now, Dr. Paul Babiak and Dr. Robert D. Hare return with a revised and updated edition of their essential guide.

All of us at some point have—or will—come into contact with psychopathic individuals. The danger they present may not be readily apparent because of their ability to charm, deceive, and manipulate.

So how can we protect ourselves and our organizations in a business climate that offers the perfect conditions for psychopaths to thrive?

In Snakes in Suits, Hare, an expert on the scientific study of psychopathy, and Babiak, an industrial and organizational psychologist and a leading authority on the corporate psychopath, examine the role of psychopaths in modern corporations and provide the tools employers can use to avoid and deal with them. Together, they have developed the B-Scan 360, a research tool designed specifically for business professionals.

Dr. Babiak and Dr. Hare reveal the secret lives of psychopaths, explain the ways in which they manipulate and deceive, and help you to see through their games.

Paul Babiak, Ph.D. is a New York-based industrial and corporate psychologist, and president of HR Back Office, an executive coaching and assessment consulting firm. He is the author of some of the original research on corporate psychopaths, including a book chapter on psychopathic manipulation in organizations for practitioners. His wo...

Editorial Reviews

“Snakes in Suits convinced me that ethical core values and ‘foolproof’ accountability systems will not protect today’s organizations from being duped and plundered if leadership ignores the psychopath, who is ideally adapted to exploit any value, from greed and vanity to altruism and good will. It’s a survival manual for coping with the hidden psychopaths in our midst.”
