Book Ñ The Psychopath Test 275 pages ¼ In this madcap journey a bestselling journalist investigates psychopaths and the industry of doctors scientists and everyone else who studies them The Psychopath Test is a fascinating journey through the minds of madness Jon Ronson's exploration of a potential hoax being played on the world's top neuroloUt in the press; and a patient in an asylum for the criminally insane who insists he's sane and certainly not a psychopath Ronson not only solves the mystery of the hoax but also discovers disturbingly that sometimes the personalities at the helm of the madness industry are with their drives and obsessions as mad in their own way as those they study And that relatively ordinary people are and defined by their maddest edges My first read of the year and it isn't what I was hoping for 3 I decided to jump on this because of my crazy love for Jon Ronson's newest book So You've Been Publicly Shamed but I realize now that I underestimated just how much the subject matter of that book contributed to my enjoyment of it The Psychopath Test has Ronson's humour similar style empathetic point of view and personal life injected into the story but this research felt meandering I thought it'd be clearer earlier in the novel how dangerous it can be to misdiagnose people and how truly nuanced complicated and personal each diagnosis should be but I felt it took to long to get to that angle of this story A lot of it also didn't feel like a story it felt like a collection of similar case studies but honestly a bunch of them could have been cut out and I wouldn't have noticedOverall this has cemented that I like Ronson's writing and his journalistic storytelling methods but that this topic and the scattered structure wasn't for me This is like a 25 stars for me
