The Wall Street Conspiracy: Ascent of the Psychopaths and the Culture of Death

“He will choose you, disarm you with his words, and control you with his presence. He will delight you with his wit and his plans. He will show you a good time but you will always get the bill. He will smile and deceive you, and he will scare you with his eyes.

Robert D. Hare, Without Conscience
