Bestselling psychologist Bill Eddy describes how dangerous, narcissistic, high-conflict personalities have taken leadership of governments worldwide--and how citizens can keep these people out of office.

Democracy is under siege. The reason isn't politics. It's personalities: too many countries have come under the sway of high-conflict politicians (HCPs). Most of these HCPs have traits of narcissistic personality disorder, antisocial (i.e., sociopathic) personality disorder, or both. This is the first and only guide for identifying and thwarting HCPs.

Bill Eddy says the key to understanding HCPs is their use of what he calls the Fantasy Crisis Triad:
1. There's a terrible crisis!
2. It's caused by this evil person or group.
3. I'm the only person who can solve it and save you.

Using Hitler, Stalin, Putin, Berlusconi, Chavez, Nixon, Trump and others as case studies, Eddy shows how HCPs create or exacerbate conflict to manipulate our emotions and rise to power. But he also shows how we can spot HCPs early on (he includes a checklist of forty typical behaviors), respond to them effectively, and identify and give our support to genuine leaders.

About the Author:

Bill Eddy is widely known as the world's leading authority on high-conflict personalities. He is the cofounder and president of the High-Conflict Institute (, based in San Diego. He trains professionals around the world to understand, spot, and thwart HCPs. He has written many successful books on high-conflict personalities, as well as a popular Psychology Today blog on the subject.
