Wow! This one was quite interesting. No scare tactics here, but I will say that you get a mindful. At first I thought there was a test to learn or something(judging from the title) but no. What it really pertains to is what has gone, and what may still go, into diagnosing madness and specifically psychopathy. While you still get a good view of how off the deep end some psychopaths may be, Jon Ronson takes a visit in the shallow end as well(not all of them kill). I was incredibly intrigued by the first few chapters,and there where a few moments where my mouth hung open and my brain said WTF! This book holds lessons for people willing to give it an honest glance.
