The Two-Edged Sword: A Study of the Paranoid Personality in Action

Front Cover
What did Indira Gandhi, Josef Stalin and Winston Churchill have in common? The answer: paranoia. Oh, too bad, you say. But is paranoia all that bad? Not at all, if it is under control, say our authors. Paranoia is a much misunderstood word and a characteristic we all share. It actually is a valuable and necessary part of our personality--part of the drive toward self-preservation. Paranoid thinking galvanizes, stimulates and fuels our competitive natures and gives all of us, as well as our leaders, motivation and guidance. Since we all have paranoia, we need to know exactly what it is and what it does to us and those around us. But too much or too little affects you adversely. Just read about some of the case studies! The authors hope you will use this book to develop your self knowledge and self control. Then you will be in tune with yourself.
