Book Review: The Wisdom Of Psychopaths

OK, this is sort of a fun book review.  Would you be more successful if you were cooler under pressure, didn't worry about consequences, had unlimited faith in yourself, and could read people's minds? What if you were also a gifted conversationalist and were a master of romance?

Perhaps you should be more like a psychopath.  At least that's the amusing conceit of this book, which one imagines is written partly in jest.

But here's the serious idea: what if psychopaths aren't really evil, just hyper-intelligent people who don't believe in our hypocritical and illogical morality?
