To write something like “I loved this book” or “I found it incredibly insightful, entertaining and downright frightful” wouldn’t give you the exact depth of my passion towards it. For the past 48 hours, I’ve been thinking about the precise words I need to come up with to describe my joy with the novel Ronson has written, and I can’t. I can only tell you that if someone like me–jaded with years of dealing with mentally ill family members, overloaded with information from 6 psychology classes and dozens of books, abstracts and articles, and mentally depleted over countless hours discussing my life in Crazytown with various friends in (and out of) the madness industry can still find this much pleasure and knowledge in a book about madness, I need you to know this book is a DAMN GOOD book!

Sera Ranville Yes, yes. All of these things. As someone who's spent their whole life surrounded by the crazies, reading words on psychopathy usually leave me shaking and weepy.. This book had me giggling and even a little bit excited.
