"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 neurologists takes him, unexpectedly, into the heart of the madness industry. An influential psychologist who is convinced that many important CEOs and politicians are, in fact, psychopaths teaches Ronson how to spot these high-flying individuals by looking out for little telltale verbal and nonverbal clues. And so Ronson, armed with his new psychopath-spotting abilities, enters the corridors of power. He spends time with a death-squad leader institutionalized for mortgage fraud in Coxsackie, New York; a legendary CEO whose psychopathy has been speculated about 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, more and more, defined by their maddest edges."--Provided by publisher.… (mais)

    The Sociopath Next Door de Martha Stout (Usuário anônimo)
    Usuário anônimo: This book also deals with recognizing and dealing with people who lack the ability to empathize with others and who see emotions as a weakness to be exploited. The tone is more scholarly and clinical.

extremely easy to read. ( )

I'm not sure what I was expecting when I picked this up; a co-worker had mentioned it when we were looking over "Best of 2011" lists, and I saw it in the digital downloads section of my local library's website. It wasn't at all what I thought it would be, and certainly not easy reading for a cross-country flight. ( )

It amuses me the author thinks of himself as a sensitive liberal. Imagine a man stomping on your face (or rather paying someone else to stomp on your face) and crying about how inhumane it is. This is pretty much how the author operates. Very smooth. ( )

Not a particularly deep or nuanced book about psychopaths or psychology in general but still a fairly interesting and fun read. ( )

The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson I mentioned this guy before.
 
This time it is about what it means to be or not to be a psychopath and what happens when you are one. Some of it staggers belief but it is factual nonetheless. He is genuine and I believe sympathetic to those he studies. It was as disturbing as it was funny and the whole time you get the feeling that he is a lost in all this as you. Recommended. ( )

Mr. Ronson’s latest book has less ballast. Though he retains his own paranormal ability to locate and befriend wing nuts of every stripe, he has to try a little harder than usual to get “The Psychopath Test” going. Chalk up some of that forced quality to the fact that Mr. Ronson’s BBC Radio 4 program, “Jon Ronson on ...,” is considered comedy. Throw in the fact that most psychopaths aren’t really all that funny. Still, his winning style pervades most of “The Psychopath Test,” as when Mr. Ronson wonders whether he will have psychopaths for readers. According to the second characteristic on the 20-item Hare Psychopathy Checklist (from which this book takes its title), some of them will. “Grandiose sense of self-worth” is one of their notable traits. “What should my message to them be?” he asks one Harvard Medical School psychologist. “Turn yourselves in?”
