THE PSYCHOPATH TEST A Journey Through the Madness Industry

by | Read by Jon Ronson

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Trying to understand the meaning of psychopathy, Welsh journalist Jon Ronson spends time with doctors, scientists, and neurologists, getting the clinical point of view. Going beyond established ideas, he also questions Broadmoor patients (one, in particular, who claims to be sane), power-grasping CEOs and politicians, a vehemently anti-psychiatry Scientologist, and even a former Haitian militia leader. Author/narrator Ronson’s likable personality makes the listening easy. All his wry humor, sarcasm, and droll wit are evident in his narration. His keen storytelling keeps the energy high, sounding as if something exciting is lurking in every upcoming sentence. A writer who specializes in books that investigate psychic outlaws, such as THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS, Ronson takes an original look at what society recognizes as madness.
