Description - The Psychopath Inside by James Fallon

This is Fallon's account of coming to grips with this discovery and its implications, especially the fact that humans are evne more complex than we can imagine.
For the first fifty-eight years of his life James Fallon was by all appearances a normal guy. A successful neuroscientist and medical school professor, he'd been raised in a loving, supportive family, married his high school sweetheart, and had three kids and lots of friends.

Then he learned a shocking truth that would not only disrupt his personal and professional life, but also would lead him to question the very nature of his own identity.

The Psychopath Inside tells the fascinating story of Fallon's reaction to the discovery that he has the brain of a psychopath. While researching serial murderers, he uncovered a distinct neurological pattern in their brain scans that helped explain their cold and violent behavior. A few months later he learned that he was descended from a family with a long line of murderers, whichhinted that Fallon's own brain pattern wasn't a fluke.

This is Fallon's account of coming to grips with this discovery and its implications, especially the fact that humans are evne more complex than we can imagine.
'Absorbing, insightful, and quirky.' Kirkus Reviews
'As comprehensive as it is compelling, essential reading for understanding the genetic and neuroscience underpinnings of psychopathy.' E. Thomas, author of Confessions of a Sociopath
'The personal and the scientific combine in this book to insightful and informative effect . . . . This is a great book and might reveal a little more about the psychopath in all of us.' Scramento Book Review
