The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry
Dec 14, 2011
I don't read a lot of non-fiction - just a preference, not a comment. This book caught my eye because my undergraduate education is in Psychology. The book is an incredibly interesting account of Jon Ronson's investigation of the madness industry and how we perceive and interpret mental illness. I really like Ronson's storytelling style because it reads like fiction. He also seems like the type of guy that I would be friends with if I met him one day at a party or on the street and struck up a conversation. Despite the comfortable tone of the book, it is very well researched. You can tell he did his homework and the questions he poses are very poignant. He also wrote the book "Men Who Stare at Goats" which I didn't read but saw the movie. This book was so enjoyable I've put that book on my to-read later pile.
