The Psychopath Whisperer

ebook

A chilling and provocative scientific dissection of the psychopath's brain

Fact: A psychopath is 6 times more likely to commit a new crime after release from prison.

Fact: Some forms of group therapy make psychopaths more likely to commit a new crime compared to no treatment at all.

Fact: A psychopath is born every 47 seconds.

Kent Kiehl is the 'Psychopath Whisperer', a neuroscientist who has dedicated his career to understanding what makes a mind turn criminal. Are psychopaths 'evil' and untreatable, or do they suffer from a mental illness comparable to schizophrenia or epilespsy? Do they – do we – have free will? Based on breathtaking research, including personality surveys and brain imaging scans of thousands of criminals, Kiehl pinpoints the biological machinery of psychopathy – and offers a radical new perspective on identifying & treating the psychopaths in our midst.
