Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Psychopaths: Understanding Charming, Conniving Predators and OffenderS≪/i> provides a fascinating examination of "neurotruths" that are relevant and applicable to 21st-century parenting and social relationships, and explains workplace "brainmarks" that enable predictive solutions to practical problems.

Author Don Jacobs, a researcher who has been studying psychopathy for over 25 years, describes how psychopathy has evolved as a brain condition, documenting how the vast majority of the spectrum represents normalcy, and only 20 to 30 percent of humankind characterizes corruptors or violent, pathological individuals. The book examines examples of individuals who have demonstrated significant achievement, influence, wealth, or corruptive behavior in differently abled profiles, and provides student autobiographies that enable rare scientific insights into the adolescent state of mind.

Synopsis:

This book taps neuroscience and neuropsychology to provide hard facts about brain conditions and the behavior that emerges from powerful brain chemistry—a fascinating read for adolescents, parents, and teachers alike.

Synopsis:

• Explains how complex social emotions such as love and hope can only come from foundational brain chemistry present at birth—the brain conditions that drive our adaptation and survival instincts

• Explores how a central design of gender-specific brain conditions rooted in ancient survival scripts provide yin-yang differences that result in the continuation of our species

• Discusses parenting—one of the most pressing needs and concerns of 21st-century life—from the perspective of neuroscience

• Documents how an understanding of how human brains are wired can help produce survivors, thrivers, achievers, and innovators without resorting to prescriptive medications
