Hello. My name is Andy McNab and I’m a psychopath. That statement comes as a bit of a shock when you first hear it, doesn’t it?

Finding out that I could be classified in this way was certainly a surprise to me but it turns out that I’m what they call a ‘good psychopath’ and it’s certainly done me no harm in life. In fact, I believe it’s the reason I’ve been so successful.

Dr. Kevin Dutton has spent a lifetime studying psychopaths. He first met former SAS hero Andy McNab during a research project. What he found surprised him. McNab is high on the psychopath spectrum but he is a GOOD PSYCHOPATH. Unlike a BAD PSYCHOPATH, he is able to dial up or down qualities such as ruthlessness, fearlessness, conscience and empathy to get the very best out of himself – and others – in a wide range of situations.

Drawing on the combination of Andy McNab’s wild and various experiences and Dr. Kevin Dutton’s expertise in analysing them, together they have explored the ways in which a good psychopath thinks differently and what that could mean for you. What do you really want from life, and how can you develop and use qualities such as charm, coolness under pressure, self-confidence and courage to get it? The Good Psychopath’s Guide to Success gives you a unique and entertaining road-map to self-fulfilment both in your personal life and your career.

“Dr Kevin Dutton writes: Few people get the better of my friend Andy McNab, the much-decorated former SAS operative and best-selling author of books like Bravo Two Zero.
But he once ended up shelling out thousands of pounds thanks to an oik with greased-back hair and cufflinks the size of plasma TV screens.”

“I recently crisscrossed the globe, interviewing a ruthless elite of top con-artists about how they bent others to their will and they agreed that the best way to persuade someone to do something — or, sometimes just as important, not do something — is to convince them that it is in their own interests, as opposed to your own.”
