“If one wants to have access to historical and recent professional literature and current hypotheses regarding psychopathy, then the Handbook of Psychopathy is a must.”

Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law (on the first edition)

“Does an extremely good job of helping us understand the many faces and facets of psychopathy....It highlights the issues and focuses on the evidence without prejudice.”

PsycCRITIQUES (on the first edition)

“A scholarly, exhaustive examination of psychopathy....The Handbook stands as an authoritative reference....Extraordinary breadth....There are valuable insights for all who research, study, evaluate, and manage these men and women so reviled by society.”

Criminal Justice and Behavior (on the first edition)

“A comprehensive and well-organized source book for the current state of the science of psychopathy.”

Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law (on the first edition)

“Comprehensive, well written, and informative. I consider it a valuable resource for any young researcher or established scholar interested in improving his or her psychopathy knowledge base.”

Psychiatric Services (on the first edition)

“Provides an extensive, informative, and exciting review of the current knowledge of psychopathy including its nature, causation, assessment, and issues of treatability....A hugely valuable resource, which provides a wealth of quality and readable information from a range of authors including some of the most senior figures in the field. It deserves to receive wide attention from a range of professionals.”

Legal and Criminal Psychology (on the first edition)

“The material here will be of substantive interest to clinical and research psychiatrists as well as psychologists, and perhaps to criminologists, specialists in mental health law, and others. I expect to turn to this book again and again.”

Metapsychology Online Reviews (on the first edition)

“An admirably comprehensive and scholarly second edition. Broad in scope—covering theory, manifestations, assessment, etiology, development, subpopulations, treatment, and more—and rich in empirical data, this handbook will be the authoritative resource for years to come. Chapters are written by renowned investigators and clinicians from across the world. A book especially apt for current times, the Handbook is essential reading for clinicians, researchers, attorneys, judges, and social policymakers seeking to understand psychopathy and its place in the spectrum of antisocial behavior and to mitigate its effects on society. I recommend it highly!”

—Andrew E. Skodol, MD, Research Professor of Psychiatry, University of Arizona College of Medicine

“Patrick has once again succeeded in bringing together the foremost scholars and practitioners on psychopathy. The second edition of the Handbook captures more than a decade of clinical and conceptual advances; about half the chapters are new and others are essentially rewritten. Across chapters, the triachic model serves as an integrative framework for understanding different conceptualizations of psychopathy and their respective assessment measures. The volume addresses this complex topic with breadth and depth, from etiological explanations to clinical and forensic applications.”

—Richard Rogers, PhD, ABPP, Regents Professor of Psychology, University of North Texas

“The encyclopedic range of topics is striking, with the concept of psychopathy evaluated from many different angles. Of particular note is the second edition's consideration of important contemporary developments, including ongoing discussions around definitions of constructs—for example, the Alternative DSM-5 Model for personality disorders, or the role of boldness in the conceptualization of psychopathy. It presents the latest thinking about potential etiological mechanisms, including influences as diverse as neurobiological and cultural factors. The volume offers valuable contributions for practicing clinicians as well as scholars, from early-career to senior professionals.”

—Leslie C. Morey, PhD, George T. & Gladys H. Abell Professor of Psychology, Texas A&M University
