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.

Enjoyable, and you might learn a thing or two!

I try not to be 'that guy' that tells everyone they should read x,y,z book, but I find myself repeatedly breaking my rule with all of Kevin Dutton's books, especially this one.

The format and interplay between the authors works brilliantly, and it's at once hugely entertaining and interesting. What more could you ask for? You won't be disappointed.
