Read this book some time ago and found it facinating and funny. Jon combines the facts and stories well and I got quite a few anecdotes from the book to pass around especially with the director level friends of mine. :)

My question is can someone recommend any similar books? I've seen the film Men who stare at goats, my quess is the book is still worth reading? But what about other books by other authors?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Snakes in Suits would be a good one.

Also, although not a book but mentioned in one of the psychopath awareness books is the movie starring Nicole Kidman "Malice"

She gives a good acting portrayal of a psychopath.

His new one "Lost at Sea" is great.

Check out "Cornbread Mafia" also!

The Sociopath next door

Perhaps, "Consider the Lobster and Other Essays ."

"Them: Adventures with Extremists" is also good.

The Wisdom of Psychopaths, by Kevin Dutton.

I second the recommendation of "Them". Like the Psychopath Test it shifts effortlessly from stuff that is very funny to stuff that is though-provoking and moving.

Is it the humor you're looking for or the psychology? For the latter, I recommend Ronald K. Siegel, but for psychological humor, Jon Ronson is matchless.
