“The Wisdom of Psychopaths is captivating. Dr. Dutton’s book invigorated my consideration of not just a certain television character, but slow-pulsed overachievers everywhere.”
—Michael C. Hall, actor, producer, Dexter
“An enjoyable, breezy treatment of a provocative subject.”
“Dutton spins a solid yarn, turning what could easily have been a dry survey of psych research into entertainment.”
"Kevin Dutton is simply a genius. I now tell his stories as if they were my own."
