In this madcap journey, a bestselling journalist investigates psychopaths and the industry of doctors, scientists, and everyone else who studies them.

The Psychopath Test is a fascinating journey through the minds of madness. Jon Ronson's exploration of a potential hoax being played on the world's top neurologists takes him, unexpectedly, into the heart of the madness industry. An influential psychologist who is convinced that many important CEOs and politicians are, in fact, psychopaths teaches Ronson how to spot these high-flying individuals by looking out for little telltale verbal and nonverbal clues. And so Ronson, armed with his new psychopath-spotting abilities, enters the corridors of power. He spends time with a death-squad leader institutionalized for mortgage fraud in Coxsackie, New York; a legendary CEO whose psychopathy has been speculated about in the press; and a patient in an asylum for the criminally insane who insists he's sane and certainly not a psychopath.

Ronson not only solves the mystery of the hoax but also discovers, disturbingly, that sometimes the personalities at the helm of the madness industry are, with their drives and obsessions, as mad in their own way as those they study. And that relatively ordinary people are, more and more, defined by their maddest edges.

Quote from Byron33
:
I think the 'problem' with psychopaths is the same problem most prey have with predators. I mean, if gazelles ran this world, they certainly wouldn't name their teams the 'Lions', 'Bears', 'Cheetahs', etc... Man has conquered these animals and can now hunt them for sport, entertainment. Before they were pacified, these animals were also demonized (and respected). Yet, things that scare us or beyond our control (ghosts, aliens, psychopathy) are treated as boogie men today. The truth is, psychopathy is a natural trait and can just as easily be associated with good (leadership, test pilots, e.g.)

If that logic held up, then releasing everybody in jail would make the world great again.

Curious for $2 but not sure I want a psychopath test ebook forever in my kindle collection. I'd feel like I'd have explaining to do to anyone who browsed through my ebooks.
