Douglas E. Richards is a biotech executive turned New York Times bestselling author. His latest thriller, The Cure (Macmillan), is centered on startling new research into what makes a psychopath tick. Psychopaths aren’t just serial killers, they make up 1% of the population. They are our colleagues, bosses, friends, and dates. Nearly all of your listeners have interacted with one at some point, and will be fascinated to realize this, and learn how to identify and avoid them in the future. Often compared to Michael Crichton, Richards has been articulate and engaging while making guest appearances on the programs of Alan Colmes, Doug Stephan, George Noory (3 hours), and numerous others. Richards explains that psychopaths are the ultimate predators: utterly ruthless, and without conscience or empathy. But what makes them especially insidious is that they are also master manipulators: charming, smooth-talking, brilliant liars with no scruples or shame.

Author and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame radio personality Dick Summer shows how he avoids letting all the candles on his birthday cake set off the everyday sprinkler systems that can put out the fire in our lives. In his new book, Staying Happy, Healthy and Hot, Dick admits his “New Louie, Louie Generation folks don’t look like the people in the beer commercials anymore, with their fancy abs and perky breasts.” “But,” he says, “we have some surprises in store for the ‘Pimple People’ and the ‘Dreary Drones,’ who think we have any intention of letting ourselves turn into a bunch of lukewarm slabs of meat.” Staying Happy, Healthy and Hot: We’re the Brand-New Louie Louie Generation (published by iUniverse) is a collection of true short stories about Dick’s life that shows how staying happy helps keep you healthy. And when you’re healthy, you’re hot. He calls that the “attitude/gratitude connection.” To book an interview with Dick Summer, call Lauren Turton at The Media Message at LAT@TheMediaMessage.com or call 610-565-4330.
