THE FACADE OF NORMALITY
Raising Awareness of the Importance of Early Recognition of Psychopaths

Book Review Excerpts:
Antisocial personality disorder or informally, psychopathy or narcissism in its essence, represents a variety of different mental and emotional disorders manifested in its specific, toxic, and destructive relationship towards others in their surroundings. The danger is present everywhere because these disorders are all around us, unrecognizable due to being common, and unpredictable too. Therefore, Dragana Rakin, the author, shows the readers exactly what this type of personality is when completely stripped and when covered in a facade through her book The Facade of Normality. The author also leads us through various possible situations in which we may encounter such personalities, warning us that we can very easily become their victims, and showing us how to resist these challenges through recognition and reaction.

Readers are introduced to the world of understanding manipulation which is the first and foremost characteristic of a psychopath. It helps us understand in what ways we can be drawn into a game which always seems very appealing at first, giving us exactly what we need at the moment. Understanding the pathology that hides beneath the “facade of normality” helps us recognize it and protect ourselves in various aspects of life.

The new book by Dragana Rakin, The Facade of Normality, gives us an insight into the problem of psychopathy and the various forms of manipulation we encounter daily. The function of this extensive and detailed study is to teach us and warn us, and that is its greatest value. All in all, The Facade of Normality by Dragana Rakin is a proper example of a useful book that helps us recognize inadequate models of behavior and avoid harmful consequences for our lives and mental health.
