Dr. Kiehl Reveals Genetic Role In Psychopaths

     Kent A. Kiehl, PHD shares his passion for understanding psychopathic behavior in his book, "The Psychopath Whisperer~The Science of Those Without a Conscience".  The doctor spent over twenty years among the prison population doing interviews and communicating on a one to one basis with it's offenders in an effort to determine what causes psychopathy.  After creating the first mobile functional MRI scanner to use on his subjects, Dr. Kent was able to confirm that psychopaths all have diminished brain structures.  This was ground breaking and shed new light on this disorder.  His findings could open the door to treatment and pre-determination of this illness.  The book is exciting for those interested in neuroscience and psychiatry.  I couldn't put it down and read it several times.  I was given the opportunity to read the book and give my honest review through Blogging for Books.
