Book Description :

'A surprising, absorbing and perceptive book. I found it altogether fascinating' PHILIP PULLMAN _______________________________________________________ Psychopath. No sooner is the word out than images of murderers, rapists, suicide bombers and gangsters flash across our minds. But unlike their film and television counterparts, not all psychopaths are violent, or even criminal. 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 twenty-first-century society. In this groundbreaking adventure into the world of psychopaths, renowned psychologist Kevin Dutton reveals a shocking truth: beneath the hype and the popular stereotype, psychopaths have something to teach us. ___________________________________________ 'Inspiring and revelatory. Dutton's book gave me an insight into who I really am' ANDY McNAB 'Dutton's curiosity takes him from boardrooms and law courts to neurological labs . . . Psychopaths, we learn, are the ultimate optimists; they always think things will work in their favour' GUARDIAN 'Highly original . . . provocative and humorous' V. S. RAMACHANDRAN 'The Wisdom of Psychopaths is captivating. Dr. Dutton’s book invigorated my consideration of not just a certain television character, but slow-pulsed overachievers everywhere' MICHAEL C HALL (Dexter)

Book Description :

In this engrossing journey into the lives of psychopaths and their infamously crafty behaviors, the renowned psychologist Kevin Dutton reveals that there is a scale of "madness" along which we all sit. Incorporating the latest advances in brain scanning and neuroscience, Dutton demonstrates that the brilliant neurosurgeon who lacks empathy has more in common with a Ted Bundy who kills for pleasure than we may wish to admit, and that a mugger in a dimly lit parking lot may well, in fact, have the same nerveless poise as a titan of industry. Dutton argues that there are indeed "functional psychopaths" among us--different from their murderous counterparts--who use their detached, unflinching, and charismatic personalities to succeed in mainstream society, and that shockingly, in some fields, the more "psychopathic" people are, the more likely they are to succeed. Dutton deconstructs this often misunderstood diagnosis through bold on-the-ground reporting and original scientific research as he mingles with the criminally insane in a high-security ward, shares a drink with one of the world's most successful con artists, and undergoes transcranial magnetic stimulation to discover firsthand exactly how it feels to see through the eyes of a psychopath. As Dutton develops his theory that we all possess psychopathic tendencies, he puts forward the argument that society as a whole is more psychopathic than ever: after all, psychopaths tend to be fearless, confident, charming, ruthless, and focused--qualities that are tailor-made for success in the twenty-first century. Provocative at every turn, The Wisdom of Psychopaths is a riveting adventure that reveals that it's our much-maligned dark side that often conceals the trump cards of success.

Book Description :

Former SAS hero Andy McNab and eminent psychologist Professor Kevin Dutton are unlikely partners. As Oxford academic and bestselling author of 'The Wisdom of Psychopaths', Dutton has plenty of experience of psychopaths, but he'd never met anyone quite like McNab, decorated war hero and special forces warrior. And although they took very different paths on their roads through life, their personal stories are remarkably similar. Together they decided to explore the subject of the psychopathic condition using a unique combination of McNab's personal experiences of 20 years in the army and Dutton's ability to analyse them. In their words, McNab pulls the trigger, Dutton explains why the gun goes bang!

Book Description :

What is a good psychopath? And how can thinking like one help you to be the best that you can be? Professor Kevin Dutton has spent a lifetime studying psychopaths. He first met SAS hero Andy McNab during a research project. What he found surprised him. McNab is a diagnosed psychopath but he is a GOOD PSYCHOPATH. Unlike a BAD PSYCHOPATH, he is able to dial up or down qualities such as ruthlessness, fearlessness, conscience and empathy to get the very best out of himself – and others – in a wide range of situations. Drawing on the combination of Andy McNab’s wild and various experiences and Professor Kevin Dutton’s expertise in analysing them, together they have explored the ways in which a good psychopath thinks differently and what that could mean for you. What do you really want from life, and how can you develop and use qualities such as charm, coolness under pressure, self-confidence and courage to get it? The Good Psychopath Manifesto gives you a unique and entertaining road-map to self-fulfillment both in your personal life and your career.

Nominated as a NEXT BIG IDEA CLUB must-read by curators ADAM GRANT, SUSAN CAIN, DANIEL PINK and MALCOLM GLADWELL 'Fascinating, important and entirely convincing.' SIR PHILIP PULLMAN 'Essential insights into the character of human choice and decision-making.' ROBERT CIALDINI, bestselling author of Influence __________ A groundbreaking and timely book about how evolutionary biology can explain our black-and-white brains, and a lesson in how we can escape the pitfalls of binary thinking. We isolate ourselves from people who are not the same as us. We refuse to listen to the other side of the argument. We think in black and white - them or us, left or right, Leave or Remain - and dangerous possibilities arise. The Alt Right. ISIS. Brexit. Trump. Our hardwired binary brains have led to increasingly polarized beliefs and a rising tide of religious intolerance and political extremism. But by understanding our evolutionary programming we can learn how to see the grey areas and make rational sense of a complex world. In this alarm call for a better future, Oxford University psychologist Dr Kevin Dutton argues for a world in which we make subtler - and far better - decisions. __________ 'Kevin Dutton is a Special Forces style psychologist. Daring. Original. All-action. No nonsense.' SIR RANULPH FIENNES

'What if I were to tell you that a psychopathic arsonist might also be the person most likely to save you from a burning building?' *This book is about a special kind of persuasion: 'flipnosis'. It has an incubation period of just seconds, and can instantly disarm even the most discerning mind. Flipnosis is black-belt mind control. It doesn't just turn the tables, it kicks them over. *From the malign but fascinating powers of psychopaths, serial killers and con men to the political genius of Winston Churchill - via the grandmasters of martial arts, Buddhist monks, magicians, advertisers, salesmen, CEOs and frogs that mug each other - Kevin Dutton's brilliantly original and revelatory book explores what cutting-edge science can teach us about the techniques of persuasion.

Book Description :

This book is about breaking down the environment of socially and economically disadvantaged groups. Underdog psychosis takes a closer look at how youths can have the same start (at first glance) as their peers, including how and why this happens.Cameron says hug a hoodie, which in most cases is unadvisable... these hoodies; that are from socio-economically deprived circumstances became "hoodies" from the environment that they are essentially put into. What caused this boom of culture from urban London? Questions whispered through the mainstream London answered. Firstly like Kevin Dutton "the wisdom of psychopaths"; we can look into the mind of these people by simply looking at prior experiences and conversations pulling together correlations. A short rounded book that points out the educational and environmental flaws that people from socio-economically deprived groups may go through. Books like the "Social class 21stst centenary" points out that even with a nation wide survey they couldn't gather or tap information from areas where the majority are below the poverty line. This book shows the mind-set of some of those people and how we can use this to create a more diverse London.

Please sign up at SociopathFree.com to access the author's future blogs and updates.This handbook was compiled by a once-naïve empath who encountered psychopaths in various avenues of the author's life: heart broken, illusions stripped away, career path shattered, and the result of a radical transformation. Somewhere in an abyss of self-searching darkness, the author was finally able to put the puzzle together with an inkling of spiritual insight and wisdom, as well as our common human will to rebound, rebuild, regenerate and re-strategize.

It is written with the aim to help empaths navigate this hidden terrain with practicality and total clarity. The goal for the guide is to:1. Have an effective reminder to reference and read, again and again, especially at moments when at risk of a fall into the internal battle of controlling our "niceness" to the undeserving. 2. Thoroughly analyze and summarize the modus operandi of this type of being, giving the empath a counter-method of operation; to review again and again as a lifetime reminder. Learn: ✓ A critical list of points to read when feeling irresolute on the NCEA rule.✓ The Psychopath pattern and method of operation at work, romance and other domains. ✓ How the Females are different from the males.✓ How to repel, defend against, and ensure they can never impact you again.✓ How to change your own mental conditioning so you are immune to their tactics.✓ The underlying principles to influence the psychopath in the short-term and in unavoidable situations. ✓ How to maneuver yourself out of their webs.✓ A concise but thorough summary to identify them - from experts such as Hare, Sheridan, Stout, and more. ✓ 4 strategies to get over them in real life.And much much more...

Book Description :

From cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Christian Jarrett, a fascinating book exploring the science of personality and how we can change ourselves for the better. What if you could exploit the plasticity of personality to change yourself in specific ways? Would you choose to become less neurotic? More self-disciplined? Less shy? Until now, we’ve been told that we’re stuck with the personality we were born with: The introvert will never break out of their shell, the narcissist will be forever trapped gazing into the mirror. In Be Who You Want, Dr. Christian Jarrett takes us on a thrilling journey, as he not only explores the ways that life changes us, but shows how we can deliberately shape our personalities to influence the course of our lives. Dr. Jarrett draws on the latest research to provide evidence-based ways to change each of the main five personality traits, including how to become more emotionally stable, extraverted, and open-minded. Dr. Jarrett features compelling stories of people who have achieved profound personality change such as a gang-leader turned youth role model, a drug addict turned ultra-runner, and a cripplingly shy teenager turned Hollywood mega-star. He also delves into the upsides of the so-called Dark Triad of personality traits—narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy—and how we might exploit their advantages without ourselves going over to the dark side. Filled with quizzes and interactive exercises to help us better understand the various aspects of our personalities, life stories, and passions, Be Who You Want will appeal to anyone who has ever felt constrained by how they've been characterized and wants to pursue lasting change.

Book Description :

A new take on therapeutic mindfulness with specific applications to troubled and delinquent youth is the focus of this innovative text. It introduces Family Mode Deactivation Therapy (FMDT) and its core concepts and methodologies, differentiating it from other cognitive and mindfulness therapies for adolescents with problem behaviors and comorbid conditions. Step by step applications of FMDT from case conceptualization to assessment and treatment are featured, with detailed case studies demonstrating its effectiveness in treating mood disorders, aggressive behavior and trauma and guidelines for its use with abusive families and other complex cases. The book's depth of clinical detail and appendix of therapist tools make it especially practical. Included in the coverage: A comparison of MDT with other cognitive approaches. The empirical status of MDT. Mindfulness in MDT process, and in the treatment room. FMDT and sexual offender youth. MDT and mindfulness in the context of trauma. Treating the "untreatable": FMDT and challenging populations. While Treating Adolescents with Family-Based Mindfulness is immediately useful to practicing psychotherapists, it should also be of interest to other professionals with a role in adolescent health care, such as policymakers, social workers, supervisors, juvenile corrections and youth center personnel and students and researchers.

Book Description :

Bestselling author Michael Shermer's exploration of science and morality that demonstrates how the scientific way of thinking has made people, and society as a whole, more moral From Galileo and Newton to Thomas Hobbes and Martin Luther King, Jr., thinkers throughout history have consciously employed scientific techniques to better understand the non-physical world. The Age of Reason and the Enlightenment led theorists to apply scientific reasoning to the non-scientific disciplines of politics, economics, and moral philosophy. Instead of relying on the woodcuts of dissected bodies in old medical texts, physicians opened bodies themselves to see what was there; instead of divining truth through the authority of an ancient holy book or philosophical treatise, people began to explore the book of nature for themselves through travel and exploration; instead of the supernatural belief in the divine right of kings, people employed a natural belief in the right of democracy. In The Moral Arc, Shermer will explain how abstract reasoning, rationality, empiricism, skepticism--scientific ways of thinking--have profoundly changed the way we perceive morality and, indeed, move us ever closer to a more just world.
