4.0 out of 5 stars What insight, 11 Nov. 2012

This review is from: The Psychopath Test (Kindle Edition)
An insight to the world of mental health. Jon Ronson explores the pharmaceutical industry, the impact of labelling, psychiatrists, scientologists, cryptic messages, the right sort of madness, and how to spot a psychopath.
Ronson is a dedicated journalist, and his own issues of mental health drive him to delve into this unusual realm.
He meets a variety of individuals, from academics and neurologists to those of a quirkier nature.
Following a seminar, he learns of the psychopath test, and uses these skills while interviewing criminals. And also goes into the psychopath spectrum; looking into the types of psychopaths and the jobs they thrive in.
What I also found interesting was the discussion of the brain and the biological processes that occur in these types of people. How it is affected. Which parts are linked in.
The writing was good and the content informative. I took a lot away from his writings and it opened up an interest to find out more about the topics and issues raised.
I do not have any criticisms for The Psychopath Test; however, I am not a critic. If the subjects I've mentioned are of interest to you, then I highly recommend this book.
