Andy McNab has been there and done that, from the SAS selection process to leading his troop in Iraq that suddenly went wrong. Capture and torture for him and several others. The man has seen an awful lot of things that would make most men whince!
Yet he has gone on to lead a very successful career as a writer and in other lines of work.
How? The answer lies in this book and it tells us he is a Psychopath, but one who can resist the urge to just start killing for the sake of killing.
It then proceeds to help us see that this ruthlessness, hardened, cold heartedness has led to his achievements in life. It encourages us to recognise that the phrase Psychopath has us straight away thinking of serial killers when in fact Doctors, Lawyers and Bankers plus many more may also be labeled with the same title.
Not sure I agreed with everything it stated but it is a very insightful book and can indeed encourage us to be more decisive and courageous when the need may arise.
Definitely worth a look at, as it is a different approach to some of the self help books you see around.
