Jonathan Crowley does a nice job once again making non-fiction engaging and nice to listen to. There was not much to the premise of the book. The author meant to differentiate personality disorders from autistic disorders from typical people, by focusing on differences in empathy. I did not find his approach/hypothesis was successful.
Good read very informative. The book covers lots of origin. Giving great examples from the brains perspective.
The science is amazing; his conclusion definitely opens up the topic to debate even if you don't agree but it will make a reader think deeply about the motivations behind human action
Insightful and informative! I liked it so much that I'm immediately starting it again. I have been wanting to read this for years. Fascinating!
The author brings brain research into the ongoing debate on the nature of evil. I've read the classic works on psychopaths, and found baron-Cohen's concept of empathy, degrees of empathy and the variability of empathy within an individual to be an important contribution to our understanding of evil.
this is one of my favorite topics that I enjoy listening to. I find the material easy to understand.
