The Wisdom of Psychopaths

The Wisdom of Psychopaths

Kevin Dutton


The Guardian reports that The Wisdom of Psychopaths "knows how to get under the skin, no chainsaw required"

“Dutton’s round-up of research goes deeper than the cliché of the cold-hearted soldier or the ruthless banker. It’s not just dry experimental data: Dutton makes an uneasy trip to Broadmoor to meet ‘the chianti-swilling unworried unwell,’ as well as undergoing a Clockwork Orange-like procedure in order to view the world through a psychopath’s eyes . . . this book knows how to get under the skin, no chainsaw required.”

The Guardian (UK)
