Definitely on my “to read” list

Posted by Charles II on November 28, 2012

Via Barry Ritholtz, a book by Aaron James on why some people are, well, irritating:

They aren’t mere jerks, and they aren’t rapists or murderers. Rather, James writes, a–holes populate the vast moral middle ground between the two. The true a–hole, James writes, “is immunized by his sense of entitlement against the complaints of other people.” He is narcissistic, self-absorbed, impolite, and permanently thoughtless to those around him—and it is almost always a him—nearly to the point of sociopathy.

    This should be the ending drop nearly to the point of sociopathy and this describes most members of corp. management and congresscritters. They came into the open and power during the 70s when Greed is Good and now they’re everywhere.
