First.What is this?
Since they have confused psychopath and sociopath almost everywhere on this website. Their book will be useless.
As stated several times, the terms "Sociopath" and "Psychopath" are defined completely differently depending on where you get the descriptions from.Having read the book, and being a sociopath myself I can say that the book is extremely accurate, and a very interesting read no matter who you are.
i love this book i found this book on my search to find who i was after long searches online about people i know telling me that im a sociopathic ass-hole so i read this book while listening to it on audio i really enjoyed this book because it really described my life as parts were being described it all came to me like a brick wall answering many questions i had about my self great read
And now that you know, what do you plan to do about it?The feedback mechanism involved in achieving illegal spiritual/emotional rewards without suffering consequences (the basic delusional state of the sociopath is this) is so powerful, you'll need divine intervention and no doubt you will get that sooner or worse, later. Hell pal, hell. Wa salaam wa alaikum
You guys wanna buy some pot?
*masturbates* since nobody's looking
well this is just awkward then
Wow very interestingI can't wait to read it!!
Projected release in May 2013.
I can hardly wait...
You can pre-order the book on Amazon.
Hey, Mon... what's your take on ME being a chick?
so tha blog will end after publication. In may. I will pack my bags now.
You must REALLY want people to think about you. Other than that, I fail to understand why you would expose your strategies and tactics. Though I plan on reading it, I hope it isn't successful.
People buying it is why it will inevitably be successful. Even if you are buying it to rip on it you still spent money to engage in the criticism. Commenting alone is giving her what she wants. Essentially we are all pawns that bought into the hype that is M.E., and we are the reasons her "success" continues to prosper.
No, SHE is the reason her success prospers. If you don't thinks so, make your own blog and see if you can attract the audience SW has.
Half the audience is in your head Monica (ME).
@Monica, you mean the audience of butthole patrollers that wish to be sociopaths due to lack of self identity, and a desire for power over anything but thier cats? Yes, quite an audience she has rounded up. That said, I'd still eat her ass.

i'll buy it and put it online
I'm gonna buy lots of copies, forge M.E,'s signature, and resell them for twice the money.
Or you can just find out where she lives,kill her, then show up to the book signings (after reading it first so you can front like you know what "you" wrote about) and be her to get the money yourself, as well as the love and fundamental hate that I am sure will follow.Piles the Creeper
Ha Ha!!! I love this idea!
Nice fake amazon reviews...
Psychology Today gives an excerpt of it. And an audiobook too. Is that you in the mp3 M.E?
I read that article in Psychology Today. It was quite remarkable really. She is a very gifted writer.
Just read the Psychology Today piece. Very interesting, Helps to understand the spectrum of the disorder.
This is weird you are my teacher!!!!!!!!
Nice Jesus placement
I work as a psych nurse in a facility that sees all across the diagnostic spectrum....I am almost done reading the authors 302 page love letter to herself....I agree with the opinion the author is clearly a self involved narcissist suffering from narcissistic personality disorder....with some sociopathic traits....maybe brought on by the stress the author feels but given the book and the authors premise of being a sociopath that is purposely left out because of her sense of superiority the author feels....pretty mundane if you ask me...sociopaths are usually cooperative calm clients in inpatient settings since they ate usually trying to figure out 100 ways to manipulate...however they feel they have no mental illness...a narcissist loves everyone talking about them...and will seek out help since most people in their lives encourage them to....author does exhibit pensive regrets to say....a sociopath would not do that
This is what I thought as I read the book too. I've denied having a problem for years, and then recently when it became overwhelmingly apparent that what I do/think is virtually identical to a sociopath I've been trying to find ways to distance myself from the label but I can't seem to do it. I've been in shock since the weekend when I read the book. And you are absolutely correct that sociopaths are cooperative and calm when in the public eye. I've always been like that at the hospital, doctor, the police station (for situations where I was not a suspect), and so on. One wants to be careful to be as helpful as possible. People give you what you want when they think you're being "nice" to them. I'm also not interested in popularity or people talking about me. I'm highly anonymous. I do not own a land line phone. If you knew my name you couldn't find a single thing on the internet about me. And my future place of residence doesn't even have an address (it's on a small island). I suspect that the author is indeed a Narcissist, perhaps even BiPolar, although that seems to be a catch-all diagnosis these days.
^ "the authors 302 page love letter to herself"Well put, apart from the missing apostrophe."ME Thomas" has watched 'Basic Instinct' too may times for his own good.
You mean "her" own good.
After seeing photos of her, I'm no longer sure.
My experience with sociopaths/psychopaths is that they are programmed to play certain games until you are forced to catch on to them. They are only reacting to stimuli, just like you. But they can send your consciousness soaring, if you can escape their traps. The author of this book is doing a great service.
a true sociopath does not care what others think about them. they have no need for approbation or external validation. they are completely self contained. a true sociopath could be the last person alive on Earth, and live a contented life. in fact, they would be happier with everyone else gone. people are messy, with their needs and wants and desires. they are boring and annoying, cloying and clingy. at most, they serve a superficial purpose for sex, to provide services that make life less of an effort. it's a trade off. most people who claim to be sociopaths are just egocentric fools trying to be cool, and make themselves feel important.
BS. Even sociopaths care what people think of them. they have to put across a certain image at a certain time to get certain things. Yea… they care.
I don't care what people "think" of me. Most people are idiots. If I were to care then the opinion of someone lesser than me would become important. Their opinions are shit. As for the character I'm playing at any given time, that's to project what they want to see in order for me to get what I want from them, and they never suspect a thing. People are boring, annoying, clingy, messy, and stupid. I have only three uses for them: some kind of intellectual stimulation they can offer me (these are the people I learn from because I cannot study everything), whatever wealth they possess that I desire to possess myself, because I do like nice things (I have impeccable taste) and sex. Some women really just are an attractive vessel with a few holes to fill, and they'll never be anything else.
Ah, but you "mis-assess"...see, the "intelligent" people that you want to either learn or gain intellectual stimulation from are intelligent for a reason...so despite what you may have deluded yourself into thinking, MANY of the "intelligents" (among the "empaths") out there DO suspect, --especially-- nowadays. And, you don't have to believe this, but they're doing the same thing and observing YOU and looking to put the spotlight on YOU.Now, because you have no emotion to "sense" this, and like you said, you cannot study everything, there -are- many other areas that people have studied (ie: social sciences) and can use to their advantage in life. And, since you don't have any peripheral vision, like some kinda "droid" robot, you can be side-swiped. So, don't be surprised when an "empath" comes along and whoops you but a GOOD one upside your head!Case in point, my shitpiece ex-"roommate" / ex-friend. Had many sources that told me he was stealing money from me (also wasn't paying me rent and was slumming it big-time). Didn't wanna believe it. Still, made the decision one night, after nine years, to end the friendship. Outta left field, I dropped him like a ton a' bricks and went to sic the authorities (read: the cops) on him. Less than three days later, his ass was homeless, out on the street. He thought I was Mr. Naive and Mr. Honest, who'd tell him everything about what people were saying, and the sociopathic fucker never saw it coming. But he chose to mistake my kindness and concern for him as a friend for weakness and obliviousness. And a BIG mistake it was! :-D But, hey, it's all good, and I still get goosebumps from the sheer thrill of the memory of him getting forced out and this vision of him having to walk around on the street wrapped in just a cheap, wool blanket! Awesome. And Praised Be my Heavenly soul for this beautiful, wonderful act I have performed. AMEN! :-D :-D :-D
Seriously, why would it be cool to be a sociopath? A true sociopath (true to their nature)leaves pain and destruction in their wake. I know because I was raised by one. I could only take so much and left home at 15. She could be the poster child for a "Rageaholic" Now it's 25 years later and she still creates chaos in everyone's life. She doesn't care about anyone but herself, she has NO self-control (evidenced by violent temper tantrums when things don't go her way), never accepts responsibility when her impulsive actions go awry, is the Queen of condescension and ridicule, and a master manipulator. I was much older when I realized what she is all about. There was still this part of me that desperately wanted to have this awesome mother/daughter relationship with her for years, but I've realized it will never happen because she doesn't have motherly feelings toward any of us. Sure she will play the part when she feels it will get her something in return, but the truth is that if any of us died before her, her biggest concern would be that we should look good in our coffin. And that's the truth.
your moms a narcissist, not a sociopath. alot of people seem to make that mistake
And a very low functionnig narcissist at that. Hire a hit man.
Narcissist or socio, she sounds like a real CUNT. I assume your father was a CUNT as well or that you'd at least have mentioned him. While she'd be better off gone, and I agree with the above, you'd have a better chance getting away with it if you were to carry it out yourself, but it's still very hard to do - forensics is extremely sophisticated nowadays.See, I'm something that at times can be worse than a sociopath...I'm a cynic and nasty one at that. I go to church just so I can pray for people to die. See, Mother Nature dealt us all these "relatives," and we're just supposed to accept them in their "positions" because that's where they fall on the biological chart. Well, FUCK THAT. And FUCK IT HARD. You should ALREADY consider your Mother Fucker of a Mother DEAD and ask another older woman with some actual constructive wisdom in her head if she'll agree to function as your "adopted" mother, at least to the best degree possible.Got it? That's how we do it...change things...that's the kinda fuckin' fun 'n' games we play around here! I suggest you read or see a play called "Three Changes," which starred Dylan McDermott when playing in New York. It might scare the shit outta you, but it's actually very realist when you stop and think about it and what we need to do for survival.Now excuse me as I go tell one child to step on another child's head so that he can reach the lower limb of a tree (no kidding...I actually did this once).
You, quite frankly, sound like a complete and utter moron. "I go to church just so I can pray for people to die." Bullshit. Why would you bother wasting your time like that? Genuinely pathetic and pointless. People are going to die anyway. Praying to non-existent deities is useless. To sum this up, you are an attention seeking idiot. That final sentence you posted was entirely unnecessary. Nobody cares.
Read the book, should have been titled," Kiss Me,I'm a Sociopath".
I'd do more than kiss her. I'm actually interested in her. Although when I am finished with her she'd probably want to kill me, which would only make things more interesting. I wonder how she fucks.
Clearly a narcissist. Her grandiosity trip is to imagine herself to be a sociopath, since she imagines that this would make everyone respect and fear her as well as garnering a few admiration votes for how she "manages" to be so normal and a few "ooh! aah!" votes for being the big bad wolf teaching Sunday School. Grow up. You're a law prof already. Methinks the lady doth protest too much. Better to admit you are a narcissist straight off and then get treatment for your underlying feelings of inadequacy.
I just finished reading the book. All she does is brag about how great she is. It's a bore, tedious, and I guess does exemplify that lack of self-awareness. I think, given the right circumstances, she could be another Jodi Arias, even though she holds herself above the common sociopaths who commit deviant crimes. I saw her on "Dr. Phil," and she was rude and condescending to someone who has his Ph.D in psychology, asking him if he knew much about sociopaths. Really? I think he thought she was a fraud, or at the least, misdiagnosed. I thought reading the book might give me some insight into some of my ex-bosses and students....best option seems to recognize these people and steer clear of them and their toxic behaviors. Wonder why she only got the diagnosis and didn't explore treatment or therapy options...too good for that? And, what's with the donation link? Donation to what? No clear objectives....to educate or support others? You're so successful you need money....for what? Certainly makes motives even more questionable and unscrupulous.
Just saw her on Dr Phil also and she's as fake as fake can be. Only one person she is interested in... herself. Clearly narcissistic and totally bonkers. She's mentally ill alright, not as a sociopath but as a liar, cheat and chronically deviant liar. Amazed Dr Phil even let her on his show.
I found this link : http://abovethelaw.com/2013/05/sources-and-dr-phil-offer-insights-author-of-confessions-of-a-sociopath-who-might-be-this-law-professor/This individual thinks the author of the book might be this woman. I wouldn't be surprised if this is true.
In the epilogue she asks the empaths of the world that she not be uncloseted, ruined, for the sake of all the intimates in her life, particularly the innocent children. Of course there were innocents in the lives of the people she ruined, but, oh well. This certainly adds to the literature on sociopathy, but it yielded no sympathy from me. Gosh, I'm so sorry your life is so tough.
Caring for the innocents… very sociopathic.
That was an invitation to find her. It was quite simple. I hadn't even looked up this forum when I directly went to Texas university law faculty pages (she was assessed by a Psychologist at Texas A & M so my first guess was she resided in the state). The third university I looked at was St Mary's, but unfortunately her photograph had been removed months prior. VERY easy to find.
Love the book, so interesting, thanks for the insights.
A microchip implanted in the brains of sociopaths/psychopaths to make them into human beings with a conscience and all that it entails - empathy, ethics, compassion, love, the actual feeling and experiencing of authentic emotions. I like that idea. More humane than a lobatomy.
Also impossible. The brain structure is different. It would be the same as trying to use a car as a pickup truck.
It helps to have a photographic memory - I don't buy books - that what a library is for - the knowledge is stored in my brain.
Pity you weren't the baby possum!
I have just only begun to read this book. I must say to all of you whom are hateful towards it although there are unpleasant parts you are clearly mistaken. The book is written in plain sight in factual references. The Author is doing us a world of knowledge by letting us glimpse into her world and as a Professor myself and admittedly being a vicim of the games the people play whom are known under all the catagories in the DSM this book gives me a better understanding of what I am dealng with. As they have proven within medical science the traits that you most hate of another person are most often the traits you hate of yourself! Do some research and appreciate the fact that someone and many others are giving us knowledge.
I've begun to read the book, however, I need the tape as going to work is an hour drive and it works better for me. Question: Brilliance??? What is it? Wasting time trying to drown a possum and then not accomplishing the task? Brilliant? I think NOT! Would have been smarter to fish it out and send it on its way!Brilliant...a figment of someones perception. Living in a crime ridden neighborhood. REALLY? I'm finding so many things I didn't know were "brilliant."
Oh, and I'm not directly spending $$$ on the book or tape. Ain't the library GREAT!
The internet is still greater. Why buy when you can download for free? It's faster, no shipping damage, and it's green (no packaging or nasty pollution from shipping).
I reject the all-or-nothing characterization of the sociopath. I have long suffered from sociopathic traits, lying, outrageous manipulation. People around me do not know my true identity. I have a lengthy list of fake accomplishments and awards. I have climbed the professional ranks largely due to phantom history and charisma. I threw my wife out of our home shortly after grad school to live with a woman I met 2 months before on a business trip. Guilt? I have tons of it. Compulsion/spontaneity? Absolutely. I live a relatively normal life in the balance, largely due to fear and guilt of what might become of me if I "go too far". I am on the sociopathic spectrum.
My resume has been a fabrication since I graduated university, not because I lack in achievements but because no one seems to understand what it is I can do. And I've had a wide range of positions over the years, everything from retail to dotcoms to telecommunications to transportation to manufacturing. I can do it all. I can do anything.
I don't suffer from being a sociopath, I do suffer from living among stupid people. The first firm I worked for was telecommunications. They had a six week training program for entry level personnel (how the company worked, policies and procedures, and so on). With my background in Psychology I knew more about teaching and assessing knowledge than the instructor (and she was a teacher). I remember explaining to her how a five point scale is vastly superior to letter grading or even percentage grading (even percentage grading to two decimal places). She was floored. She was also attractive with long dark hair, a few freckles, big brown eyes, a nice figure and simply massive breasts. She left the firm when I discarded her.
sociopaths do not feel guilt, you just excluded yourself from this characterization
Im reading the book out of curiosity/the eerie cover caught my eye/I truely feel sorry sociopaths live their life the way they do I cant imagine not having a conscious:guilt: and no epathy I dont get off on hurting peolpe I care
Hmmm. Reading the book & watching just 2 minutes of you on Dr Phil - completely gives you away. The person you portray yourself to be in the book is just a megalomaniacal dream, as I suspected it may be. You're more an asshole than a sociopath. Watching you on Dr Phil I actually cringed for you. You are only scary in your own mind... everyone else is shaking their head with incredulity that you are able to believe such nonsense about your big old scary self in your head.... How embarrassing. Get some therapy for that effed up childhood of yours & then you'll realise you're only a narcissist with abandonment issues... just like the rest of us.
Are you referring to the author or Dr Phil (who is a narcissistic shit). That people take Dr Phil seriously merely demonstrates just how stupid people are.
anonymous ^^regarding seeing her on dr phill*well said -u hit the nail on the head*she worships only her delusional ego''' how shallow
one sick twisted woman i dont feel empathy towards her what for ! she doesnt deserve it -feel sick to my stomach a worthless empty shell
the book made me sick
M.E. is not a sociopath, M.E. shows obvious signs of narcissistic personality disorder. If this is the case, I certainly hope the want to bear children never comes true, because she's going to fuck them up big time.
I'd like to fuck her big time. Her ass looks like a delightful playground.
i spilled hot coco over my book can annyone tell me how it ends?
she gets unmasked and spends the rest af here days in a nuthouse as a guinea pig(sometimes on display in a glass box for the public don't feed the psychopath)
L0L at the above comment, priceless.

W a f!
I totally loved reading your book M.E.. Thank you for your openness you have helped me deal with a sister-in-law who has the dark triad condition who sought power over me and tried to ruin my reputation in the family and friend circles. I have been on tranquilisers and sleeping pills for at least 2 years because of my ordeal. Your book relieved my anxiety and stress. Thank you for an extremely well written book. I wish you would write another one. I actually got to like you.
Hi All, M.E. gave me permission to post my relevant book, a collection of non-fiction shorts where the protagonist encounters a cast of colorful characters who make him wonder are they mostly not right or perhaps it's him, perhaps it's him. Thanks for your attention.-- www.amazon.com/My-Life-What-Not-1-10/dp/1469952351/ref=sr_1_2_title_1_pap?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1393945037&sr=1-2&keywords=e+rekstein
The book is okay, though now after reading over the site, it feels like a lengthy cut and paste of what I've read from the blog. Meh
The book is cleary wrote by a narcisist, never a socio. What a f***!
Well I am going to buy it. I have just read one from the side of the partner of a sociopath so it will be interesting to read the other perspective.
Wow. Iam a guy and have been with a sociopath girlfriend for 3 years it's been on and off again about 12 times. I have been here in the hospital for 9 days awaiting news that could be very bad or good she's been here a total of 6 hours out of 9 days.claim she loves me I'm her best friend get where is she in my time of need. caught her with her ex a month ago told her it was over she swears nothing happened but yet she lied and deceived me about it I told her it was over. After 2 days the texts and calls start coming pouring it on and me like an idiot go back to her the next two weeks after that she's all affectionate and into me. After two weeks the light switch flips. She sees me only when convenient. Let me further say she suffers from depression and doesn't go out much yet she will function and shower me but it always goes away. I'm tired of her trying to flip and make me crazy and ready to do this although I feel heartbroken. I feel as if I love and hate her both. I am also angry at myself for falling for her shit. I would like to know if there are support groups in the Chicago area as I might need one to get through. Ladies please know that there are still good men available. Good luck to all
best news I have heard yet - while my not-soon-enough-to-be-ex abuses the court system to ensure that he never has to work again (as he never did the whole time we were married) - his plan is clear and he will do whatever it takes to achieve it
I'm not a sociopath but know two very well. book was great reading . Both informationally and entertainingly .
i am here to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for more than 7 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated don’t know what to do, i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr amine spell temple for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still live me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he traditional spell hospital casted on him that make him comeback to me today,me and my family are now happy again today. thank you traditional spell hospital for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of (email@example.com) getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend. and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.(firstname.lastname@example.org)
I saw you on Dr. Phil and you are not a sociopath. I've had to work with two in my life; I know the signs of one versus the signs of an empath and you are claiming to be one in order to write and sell a book and romantically live out the persona of one.
I am writing to compliment your book. It flows well. You convinced me to listen although I found your book at times difficult to read. I am at the opposite end of the spectrum from you. We have some interesting things in common though. Ever feel like you fell to Earth from another planet? My experience with sociopaths makes me distrust everything you say. You have succeeded in the appearance of honesty -- blunt sincerity. I am willing to accept everything you have written until proven otherwise. Quite an achievement. My instinct is to distrust you profoundly. I am an artist - I have written you to acknowledge work every well done.
I tried to send you an e-mail to the address given. didn't work.
Really liked your book. I feel like we have quite a lot in common.
M.E. Thomas,The one sure way to determine for sure if you are a sociopath is to determine brain function deficiency in the prefrontal cortex. Sociopaths have a very low functioning prefrontal cortex. A Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scan can determine brain function.Have a PET scan done and if you have low function in the ventral/orbital and medial portions of the prefrontal cortex, then you are indeed a sociopath.
I did read your book and do feel you exhibit sociopathic traits, but you are contradictory throughout the book. I have done a lot of research myself on sociopaths and determined the only way to diagnose a sociopath is to examine brain function. Examining neurological function in the brain eliminates the subjective aspects of other diagnostic methods. The neurological characteristics of sociopaths have been documented by scientists over the last few years. The PET scan is currently the best method for determining brain function and deficiencies in brain function. Poor functioning in the prefrontal cortex will provide an accurate diagnoses without the subjective nature of other diagnostic methods.
Just read the book, was an ok read, but also found it boring and repetitive and it certainly didn't seem like it was written by some-one of great intellect
I think it is quite possible she is a narcissist rather than a sociopath.
We have a lot in common: I could swear I'm the one who wrote this book. This is a book every sociopath should have in her/his personal library. If you're not a sociopath, don't bother buying it: you will never be able to understand the greatness of our mind.
This is a good way to advertise that book. You don't mean a word of what you said but you helped a writer in need.
You're probably right: I never read it actually.
Greatness of your mind?Liars, manipulators, superficial.That's not greatness, that's merely run of the mill bad behavior. Delusional in fact.
