Review: The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success

The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success by Kevin Dutton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Though I've read this book quite fast but I really enjoyed those useful lessons and somehow in mid of it, I started considering myself as a good psychopath. Someone who has total control on fear or any emotion, whatsoever. And, it maybe due to years of mediation & reading spiritual scriptures.

The main message in this book is:

Some psychopaths end up in jail as tried murderers and rapists, but others are successful executives, lawyers and surgeons and hold high political offices. Actually, it’s specific psychopathic traits like fearlessness and living in the now that help them achieve success – a lesson for anyone who wants to learn from successful, functional psychopaths.

This book in blinks answered the following questions:

What makes psychopaths different from others? What are they like?

Psychopaths are often charming and intelligent – and know no fears.
Psychopaths make decisions coolly and rationally; emotions and morals aren’t factors.
Psychopaths don’t just contemplate doing something – they take action.
Why are psychopaths successful? What sorts of positions are best for them?

Some psychopathic traits are more common in executives and politicians than in convicted criminals.
Living in the here and now – what psychopaths have in common with Zen masters.
Psychopathic traits are especially useful in stressful, chaotic environments.
“Generation Me”: Psychopathic traits are more widespread in younger generations.
What can we learn from successful psychopaths?

Acquiring psychopathic traits can be useful for your own advancement.
Functional psychopaths can flip their behavioral switch depending on the situation.

Now, I can understand that you're seriously hoping to read it, as soon as you could. So wait no more, here's the link to buy it from Amazon at very discounted price - http://amzn.to/2mH3yHO
