Publisher's Summary

Psychopath. No sooner is the word out than images of murderers, suicide bombers and gangsters flash across our minds. But unlike their box-office counterparts, not all psychopaths are violent or even criminal. In fact they are fearless, confident, 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: psychopaths have something to teach us.

Critic Reviews

" The Wisdom of Psychopaths is a surprising, absorbing, and perceptive book...I found it altogether fascinating." (Philip Pullman)
"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, author of The Tell-Tale Brain)

Awful narration ruins book

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the narrator had been different. Especially if he'd not insisted on doing (lame) accents whenever he read a quotation.

Would you ever listen to anything by Kevin Dutton again?

Hard to tell. I can barely get through this book, and the narration is so distractingly bad that I can't tell if the book itself is good.

Would you be willing to try another one of David Timson’s performances?

Never.
