"* Psychopath. No sooner is the word out than images of serial killers, rapists, suicide bombers and gangsters come scything across our minds. * But unlike their box-office counterparts, not all psychopaths are violent or even illicit. 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 21st century society. * The Wisdom of Psychopathsis an intellectual rollercoaster ride that combines lightning hot science with unprecedented access to secret monasteries, Special Forces training camps, and rarefied psychopath wings of high security hospitals. We meet serial killers, war heroes, financiers, movie stars and attorneys, and discover something amazing- beneath the hype and the popular characterization, psychopaths have something to teach us."
