Jon Ronson can make anything feel surreal, would recommend. So far I have read this and "So you've been publicly shamed" which you should listen to If you enjoyed this as much as me.

this guy reads like he believes everything he says, great story, I could not wait to get back into the car to hear more.
very very very very very very very very very very very very very very marvelous. They said I had to have 20 words and 5 unique words. But seriously it's was very marvelous. Highly recommend!
It takes a little while to get used to the style of Jon's narration and the meandering nature of the book but once you get into it you can't stop listening.
Well worth it, he gives an honest, balanced and interesting account of his dip of the toe into the less normal side of us all.

Not really, Jon Ronson has his own style so I am glad he was chosen to read it.
Brilliant narration by the author takes the listener right into his exploration of the subject matter and a test which is less distant from all of us than we might prefer to believe
I didn't know what to expect really, I generally read and listen to fiction, but I was hooked with this book. It had mystery and discovery and enlightenment. Interesting characters, who actually exist. Would, and have, recommended this, and will be getting further Jon Ronson books.
So good I bought the audio book having already read the paperback. I love Jon Ronson's books and this is the first one that introduced me to him. Many fascinating cases and people written about here, all within the category of 'psychopath' or 'mental categorisation.'
Jon takes us on a journey through mental health, where we are in the same boat as him, guessing whether his interviewee, himself, yourself or indeed, the guy sat next to you on the train, may in fact be psychopathic or simply misunderstood.
this was at first hard to listen to. I didn't give the narrator a fair chance so it sat in my library for months.
that being said when I did tackle it, it was one of the best audio books I have listened too!
The first Jon ronson I listened too. I wasn't sure at first but he fast becomes likeable and then lovable and then you don't want it to end.
I think the psychopath test is his best book just because it's both so shocking and well constructed. The way the stories are weaved together keeps you engaged and its a firm favourite for me. Great humour too
