really liked it

Jon Ronson, author of "Men Who Stare at Goats", gives a hilarious narration to this interesting and, at times, unnerving story. This nonfiction is an enthralling research project of psychopaths and with Ronson's tenacious reporting skills, we receive many perspectives of the "madness industry" and unbiased portrayals of some truly crazy characters. About three quarters of the way through, however, the trajectory of the project seems to dissolve and the book tailspins into still interesting, though less connected interviews and accounts. Despite this, the narration had me laughing out loud and left me eager to read the author's other work.
