Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go to Work is a book by industrial psychologist Paul Babiak, Ph.D. and psychopathy expert Dr Robert D. Hare, Ph.D. published in 2006.

It covers the nature of psychopaths in the context of employment and explains

  • how psychopaths manipulate their way into work and get promoted,
  • the effects of their presence on colleagues and corporations, and
  • the superficial similarities (and fundamental differences) between leadership skills and psychopathic traits.

The work is interlaced with fictional narrative illustrating how the factual content applies to real life situations.
