      I don't believe this memoir is true. She is the ultimate narcissist, who treats everyone around her like crap. I thought the premise was amusing, as it seemed like it would be a good satire on the whole "Bridget Jones" thing. It might take years and the presentation might vary, but the odds are not in her favor. Don't let yourself become the next to be manipulated, lied to, or even assaulted or have your life destroyed by the sociopath you know.

      It also doesn't help that the situations in the book are just that - situations. In fact, the satire would've been even more pointed had the book been more well rounded. I'm not a mental health professional, but as a police officer of 13 years I've had many many contacts I did not purchase this book. This memoir is dishonest in that respect, but if the author truly is a sociopath I would expect nothing less. It's just basically the story of the life of Katya. The book could be a good outlet for the reader's dark side.

      Unaware of my recent appointment at London Goss, because he can't afford to buy a newspaper, Teddington mournfully informs me that due to the new mystery columnist's allegedly excessive pay demands, the paper's human resources budget had to be cut and so his erstwhile mentor and dispatch boy, plus 30 other employees, have just been made redundant. In this book you will learn what a true sociopath is like, how to recognize them, and how to deal with them - especially if they cannot be avoided. The diary format also doesn't work here. In fact, the satire would've been even more pointed had the book been more well rounded. It's a fast read. Just like M.
