But think again: you could probably benefit from being a little more psychopathic yourself.­Psychologist Kevin Dutton has made a specialty of psychopathy, and is on first-­name terms with many notorious killers. But unlike those incarcerated psychopaths, and all those depicted in movies and crime fiction, most are not violent, he explains.

One of Slate ’s Twenty Overlooked Books of 2012
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.

Pszichopaták: sorozatgyilkosok, kíméletlen erőszaktevők, merénylők és vérszomjas gengszterek. A könyvek és filmek világában A bárányok hallgatnak, a Péntek 13 vagy a Dexter főhősei. A valóságban azonban a pszichopaták köztünk élnek: orvosok, ügyvédek, cégvezetők vagy haditengerészek. Nem ismerik a félelmet, hatalmas az önbizalmuk, remekül összpontosítanak és maradéktalanul végrehajtják a feladataikat. Valljuk be, a pszichopaták vonzó személyiségek. De vajon mi különbözteti meg az önfeláldozó tűzoltót vagy az életmentő sebészt a sorozatgyilkostól? Miben rejlik a vonzerejük, mit tanulhatunk tőlük, s hogyan fedezhetjük fel a bennünk rejtőző pszichopatát? Ezekre a kérdésekre keresi a választ a téma világhírű szakértője szigorúan ellenőrzött börtönökben, keleti kolostorokban, laboratóriumokban és a harctéren, miközben valódi Hannibal Lectereket faggat, sőt, egy életveszélyes kísérletben maga is megtapasztalja a pszichopata lét sötét oldalát?...
