Synopsis:
Bad Boys, Bad Men examines antisocial personality disorder, or ASP, th e mysterious mental condition that underlies a lifelong penchant for b ad behavior. Donald W. Black, MD, draws on case studies, scientific da ta, and current events to explore antisocial behavior in men and to ch art the history, nature, and treatment of a misunderstood disorder aff ecting nearly seven million Americans. Citing new evidence from geneti cs and neuroscience, Black argues that this condition is tied to biolo gical causes, and that some people are simply born bad. Examining comp elling cases that read like medical detective stories, he separates th e lies these men tell from the facts their lives reveal. His book not only describes the warning signs that predict which troubled children are more likely to become dangerous adults, but also details the progr ess toward treatment for ASP.
