Some part are too technical and dry if you are not well versed in scientific fields.
The narrator rushes through some parts for no apparent reason.
Honest, insightful, useful, but somewhat insufferable at times. It wasn’t insufferable because of the content, but the subject matter at times was triggering. Like the part where James describes his malicious glee while vaguely recalling the times he covertly exacted revenge against his opposition many years later. It is alarming, chilling, and haunting, and it hits a little too close to home, since many of the readers got the book so they could better understand the psychopaths in their lives. With that said, James’ radical candor was ironically the most selfless thing a prosocial psychopath could do to make society more aware and better spot, understand, prepare, and react to psychopathy.
I enjoyed the last two chapters 9 and 10 the most. I’m not in the medical field nor in scientific research.
I was not impressed by the author’s character. I’m glad we were never friends. The book was helpful.
Fascinating. i think i found the author almost as interesting as he finds himself. i wonder if there will be a sequel regarding the fall out of this book. Honestly could listen to this man talk anout himself for ages, or go on a booze fuelled adventure with him.
Not very informative or interesting. Not worth the time.
Very informative, interesting, and definitely relatable.
An important read. Mr. Fallon tries hard to impress you with his "honesty" which makes him come across as a pariah and then (I believe) thinks he can convince you that he is quite jolly and means no harm. The only thing scarier than that is the hordes of people than keep surrounding this narcissist in order to benefit. In effect creating him. He is a very dangerous man.
The book is at times interesting and at time hard to follow. The interesting parts are very good and relatable (hopefully not the what makes a psychopath part). The fact that this is a bit of the author’s story and path to finding out he is in the Psychopath spectrum makes it more interesting.
The Narrator is good and has a good voice that keeps you engaged and into it.
The narration was too fast, and almost sounded electronic at a few points, overall I enjoyed the book. I Just had to rewind a few times or drink some more coffee.
Interesting story, different to hear self-narration of a story.
I am very helped and impressed by the honesty in this book. So much good information! This helps me understand my son, and also to help him. I feel there is hope and that I can make a big difference in his adult life as his mom. It is empowering to hear how important the connection is for him. (We have a very good connection.) Now I feel less worried he will end up having a destructive life. :) And I still have time to teach him important skills to compensate for what does not come natural to him. Thank you!
Informative and entertaining
I really want to listen to and enjoy this book, but the narration is horrible. It speeds up, slows down, it sometimes sounds like the narrator is talking so fast he’s skipping syllables. Then, he’s. So. Slow. You. Could. Expect. A. Period. After. Every. Word.
Helps tremendously to have some type of understanding of the anatomy of the brain. Very interesting and thought provoking.
Amazing book! beautifully written, that kept a nice balance between facts and the story of Fallon's life. Highly recommend.
Well written, exciting narrative. Learned a lot about the inner workings of the psychopathic mind. Great read/listen!
