"Haycock does a great job of describing the scientific basis of our understanding of individuals with psychopathic traits who are nevertheless contributing members of our society" ". . . it's probably a good idea to learn as much as we can about psychopaths.

Mary Ellen O'Toole, PhD, FBI, Supervisory Special Agent, Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) (Retired). Author: Dangerous Instincts: How Gut Feelings Betray Us says:

"Dr. Haycock has flawlessly blended neuroscience with the behavioral sciences in his riveting book on psychopathy.

Based on his own neuroscience background, Dr. Haycock breaths life into the psychopath's hallmark traits including their lack of empathy for others, their ability to feel no guilt or remorse for their actions, and their fearlessness in situations that would bring most of us to our knees.

Don't delude yourself that you will never meet a psychopath, or that you'll be able to spot him because of the horns on his head. Dr Haycock takes you into the psychopathic brain where their pathology begins, where it is controlled and explains how such normal appearing, “nice and charming” people can behave in such horrifying and murderous ways."
