Jon builds his stories beautifully, so this is a very addictive read, and one you might be tempted to do in one go. The people he meets are fascinating, and their lives are mindblowing. I recommended this to a friend recently and got a text back saying 'Is this definitely fact, not fiction? - my jaw is on the floor!'
I found this audiobook very engrossing -it covers a fascinating subject, and rattles along drawing the reader into the author's obsessional interest in it.
However, I think that I may have to listen to it again -and possibly several times -before I can truly understand fully all the different threads. I don't see this as a fault.
Fascinating, disturbing, good
Toto Constant, interesting scary character.

A thought provoking insight into Psychopathy and mental health. First we get a fascinating insight into its more expected territories before Jon Ronson then takes it back to the world of business and media. there's many unexpectedly amusing moment t's and a good flow of narrative with each exploit or interview leading to the next chapter. I found this an entertaining 'read' and Jon does an excellent job articulating his text. Definitely worth a listen.
A fantastic book, full of intriguing debate and theory based around psychology being an end all for detailing everyone's personality - but is it? As an audiobook it was clearly read, but being the author reading it, I would have thought more excitement or own interest in their work would show through. Instead it is very monotone.
I thought his revelations were interesting and the science of psychology was a brilliant base for the book. However, for me the style of journalism was ramshackle, felt like a lot of padding and diluted my interest in the subject.
Probably not, this was my first attempt and I finished it but feel like other journalists might be more my cup of tea.
A livelier tone.
It rekindled my long dead A Level interest in psychology.
I like to learn interesting stuff on midnight runs. And I need absorbing children's audio to stay sane on long car journeys.
I was inspired to read this book by an associate who is undoubtedly a psycho. I have little else to thank her for- this was well worth the listen .
An examination of the logic behind and failures surrounding psychopath diagnosis from the perspective of one of the very few people on this earth that are certainly more anxious, funny and brave than myself.
