Read Dangerous Personalities: An FBI Profiler Shows You How to Identify and Protect Yourself from Harmful People Online Free - 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.

I read Dangerous Personalities by Joe Navarro. This is a book that helps identify the menacing threats of people around us. This book takes a look at the narcissistic personality, the emotionally unstable personality, the paranoid personality and the predator. I think these types of books are goo...

Very disappointing, but I probably should have expected it.
I learned about the book via an article covering the guy who did the stabbings on Tri-Met. While much of what the article said made sense, it failed to tie his history together with societal trends that clearly made a difference.

Not a lot that's new here. Marketed as a layperson's guide to certain pathological personality types, it covers the same ground as most introductions to abnormal psychology, but without the expert's perspective. The author writes from the standpoint of a law enforcement official, rather than a tr...

I picked this up at a book sale thinking it would appeal to my true crime passion. Eh? It was ok-ish. I feel like the target audience is poorly educated, slightly paranoid women. And the lists-- sweet Jesus. If you ever need the world's most tedious lists of negative adjectives then this is for y...

I like the idea of this book, on how to recognize and avoid people who might be up to no good, but the presentation was quite superficial. There just wasn't a whole book's worth of information--it would have been better as a magazine article. The writing was kind of repetitive and hokey, too. (An...

Thank you Rodale and Goodreads for this book.
I found it very interesting and enlightening to read.
The first thing I did after reading it was show my 13 yr old daughter the checklists and lists of terms associated with each personality type. I may have suggested she see how a few of her friends d...

a must read for everyone, in my opinion. most people are good and kind and we are raised to mostly blindly trust.....this attitude has to change in order to protect ourselves. educating ourselves about the "bad ones" can help us recognize them for who they are right at the beginning.
