Turning Pro: Tap Your Inner Power and Create Your Life's Work by Steven Pressfield,http://www.amazon.com/dp/1936891034/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_DWIksb130X1RY39J
Book gives many different profiles of sociopaths/psychopaths. Psychopaths are not just common criminals, they can be some of the most charming, successful persons one ever meets, but they can also destroy lives. Very good book.
