Best-selling psychology author David L. Weiner reveals the personalities behind the facades of "power freaks." Coming in many guises - including the business psychopath (who may be working down the hall from you), the arrogant and status-obsessed, the messianic, and the perfectionist - they are all driven by an irrational need to dominate and to enhance their status, regardless of the consequences to others. In this well-researched and insightful guide to handling power-crazed individuals who create havoc at work and at home, Weiner explains why they act the way they do and what you can do to prevent them from making your life a living hell!

Power Freaks includes a power quiz to help you assess your own instinctual drive for power, plus an interactive web site that allows you to compare this side of your personality to that of other respondents. Finally, it teaches you how to recognize such potentially destructive people in your life and, most importantly, helps you to develop a strategy to deal with them. In a competitive world, increasingly dominated by intense corporate cultures, this brilliant study in organizational psychology will help you swim safely through shark-infested waters.
