The Psychopath Testby Jon Ronson

When Ronson starts investigating an elaborate hoax played on top scientists, he finds himself following clues to psychopaths. This book tracks his journey as he meets and chats with a death squad leader, a narcissistic CEO that delights in firing people, and an inmate at Broadmoor that claims he is sane(to name a few). He delves into some of the history of the “madness industry,” exploring treatments, diagnostic tests and more. Engrossing subject and an easy read with Ronson’s thoughtful and candid(and often anxiousridden) perspective.

With Ronson as a guide, the heaviness of the topic becomes both enlightening and palatable.
