“The psychopath always fascinates, and this new book rises to the challenge of its subject. The book exhaustively covers everything known about psychopathy to date. It also brings an exciting new theory, exploring the neuro-biologicalunderpinnings of psychopaths’ broken emotions.
The Psychopath
will be an en-grossing read for any clinician, scientist or student who wants to understandthat mysterious individual, the criminal psychopath.”
 Professor Terrie Moffitt, Institute of Psychiatry, London
“A gem of a contribution to the field of psychopathy, this wonderful resourceprovides a highly coherent and integrative review of developments in cognitiveand affective neuroscience and their implications for understanding the natureof psychopathy. The authors are passionate about their research and this book presents their personal assessment of the field in a remarkably powerful, read-able, and detailed manner. The book is an extraordinary accomplishment and a boon for the field.”
 Professor Joseph Newman, Department of Psychology, University of Wisconsin
“This timely book represents an exciting new synthesis which has taken intoaccount emerging data on the biology of psychopathy, including its neuro-cognitive basis. The authors lucidly describe discoveries about emotional process-ing in psychopaths and new thinking about its psychiatric nosology. They haveperformed a notable service in providing this highly readable survey, whichsummarises objectively the strengths and weaknesses of various theoretical ac-counts, including their own, and the implications for forensic, adult and childpsychiatry.”
Trevor Robbins, Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Cambridge
“A comprehensive summary of recent research on the cognitive, emotional, andneurological correlates to psychopathy. One of the few resources to consider the manifestations of psychopathy throughout the lifespan.”
