The Wisdom of Psychopaths

by Kevin Dutton

About the book

Psychopath. No sooner is the word out than images of murderers, rapists, suicide bombers and gangsters flash across our minds.

But unlike their box-office counterparts, not all psychopaths are violent, or even criminal. Far from it. In fact, they have a lot of good things going for them. Psychopaths are fearless, confident, charismatic, ruthless and focused – qualities tailor-made for success in twenty-first-century society.

In this groundbreaking adventure into the world of psychopaths, renowned psychologist Kevin Dutton reveals a shocking truth: beneath the hype and the popular characterisation, psychopaths have something to teach us.


Reviews

“Dutton tackles an elusive, important and much neglected aspect of the mind; our personality. He presents some highly original insights and does so in a provocative and humorous style”
V. S. Ramachandran, Gifford lecturer, Reith lecturer and author of The Tell-Tale Brain

“The Wisdom of Psychopaths is a surprising, absorbing, and perceptive book set out in briskly readable prose and with gripping anecdotes. I found it altogether fascinating.” Philip Pullman

The Wisdom of Psychopaths is captivating. Dr. Dutton’s book invigorated my consideration of not just a certain television character, but slow-pulsed overachievers everywhere.” Michael C Hall (Dexter)
