Summary
"We all need emotional blinders: the etiquette that keeps society smoothly moving depends on it. But when you absolutely must rely on another person, you have to be able to assess them objectively. RED FLAGS shares simple strategies anyone can use to spot deceptive or downright dangerous people who use ingratiation and social convention to draw in and lull victims. Readers will learn how even the most skeptical of us use rose-colored lenses on those around us, in three sections: Blinded by Desire; Overlooking Red Flags in a Professional Setting; Be Afraid of What You Can't See." --
