Thought provoking, entertaining and well thought out,
This review is from: The Good Psychopath's Guide to Success (Paperback)
We hear a lot about psychopaths in business, politics, medicine and other fields where they have power over others, power which they can presumably exploit. This is the common perception, and until reading Kevin Dutton's books was as far as my understanding of this went.
Then there is the untapped potential of the traits of psychopaths and how regular people can learn from their approach. In his first book on the subject, Dutton tests a psychopath's responses to situations and stimuli. How do such people react and in what ways is this different to regular folk?
It's an interesting book. This too is an interesting and thought provoking effort, and in places it's very amusing. It's also surprising, and throws some useful and informed light on an area of psychology that many people would simply assume is destructive and threatening. Good psychopaths and bad psychopaths, a strange way of looking at that particular area of the population but a wholly understandable one.
This is an intriguing book, one I would thoroughly recommend.
Fancy an unusual and funny read? Try Sherlock Holmes and the Flying Zombie Death Monkeys, a B movie in a book. Surprising and hilarious.
