Publisher's Summary

If you are bored and unfulfilled by dry and overly worthy self-help manuals, then this is the audiobook for you! Listen to this and take a very different look at yourself!
Former SAS hero Andy McNab and eminent psychologist Professor Kevin Dutton are unlikely partners. As Oxford academic and bestselling author of The Wisdom of Psychopaths, Kevin Dutton has plenty of experience of psychopaths, but he'd never met anyone quite like Andy McNab, decorated war hero and special forces warrior. And although they took very different paths on their roads through life, their personal stories are remarkably similar.
Together they decided to explore the subject of the psychopathic condition using a unique combination of McNab's personal experiences of 20 years in the army and Dutton's ability to analyse them. In their words, McNab pulls the trigger, Dutton explains why the gun goes bang!
This audiobook sets out to answer two main questions: What is a good psychopath? And how can you use the positive attributes of that psychology to be the 'best that you can be' In order to do so, they have created a Psychopath Manifesto, an alternative set of rules for life, which begins by asking 'what do you really want from life' and 'what does success look like to you'? It then offers a candid and penetrating insight into those questions viewed using Dutton's expertise through the prism of Andy McNab's wild and various career. It aims to provide an unusual and entertaining roadmap to self-fulfillment whether in your personal life, your business life or your social life

I couldn't go the distance

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I've enjoyed Andy's books so far, but this is a work of self indulgence, navel gazing at its peak. It left me reaching for the off button.

Has The Good Psychopath's Guide to Success turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of Andy McNab and Kevin Dutton ’s performances?

No

What character would you cut from The Good Psychopath's Guide to Success?

I'd cut the whole book.

Surveys

Would you consider the audio edition of The Good Psychopath's Guide to Success to be better than the print version?

No, only because as I listened to this on a long car trip I could not write down the survey answers at the end of each chapter. It is a bit tedious to go back and do them again. I enjoyed the book, the content and the presentation. I looked to see if the quizzes were a download option and they are not.

light on subject matter.

Mildly amusing anecdotes and lighthearted banter prevail over learning material. Below entry level psychology for geezers. I get the impression the authors feel the need to dumb things down for a laddish reader base. If you already have an interest in psychology this book will fall short. However if you enjoy Andy McNabs work and fancy a change of direction from him then this book may work for you.
