What if society wasn't fundamentally rational, but was motivated by insanity? This thought sets Jon Ronson on an utterly compelling adventure into the world of madness. Along the way, Jon meets psychopaths, those whose lives have been touched by madness and those whose job it is to diagnose it, including the influential psychologist who developed the Psychopath Test, from whom Jon learns the art of psychopath-spotting. A skill which seemingly reveals that madness could indeed be at the heart of everything . . . Combining Jon Ronson's trademark humour, charm and investigative incision, The Psychopath Test is both entertaining and honest, unearthing dangerous truths and asking serious questions about how we define normality in a world where we are increasingly judged by our maddest edges.

“Compelling, essential reading for understanding the underpinnings of psychopathy.” — M. E. Thomas, author of Confessions of a Sociopath For his first fifty-eight years, James Fallon was by all appearances a normal guy. A successful neuroscientist and professor, he’d been raised in a loving family, married his high school sweetheart, and had three kids and lots of friends. Then he learned a shocking truth that would not only disrupt his personal and professional life, but would lead him to question the very nature of his own identity. While researching serial killers, he uncovered a pattern in their brain scans that helped explain their cold and violent behavior. Astonishingly, his own scan matched that pattern. And a few months later he learned that he was descended from a long line of murderers. Fallon set out to reconcile the truth about his own brain with everything he knew as a scientist about the mind, behavior, and personality.

When Steve Smith set out to hitchhike from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to Canada’s west coast back in 1968, he was just an eighteen-year-old hippie with an appetite for adventure. But a short way into his journey, a reckless decision to steal a car landed him in police custody. Afraid of getting caught with the two tabs of acid in his pocket, Steve popped them into his mouth. It was one of the worst decisions of his life. Mistaking his drug trip for a mental breakdown, the authorities placed him in Ontario’s notorious Oak Ridge mental health facility. While there, not only did he find himself shoulder-to-shoulder with people like notorious child killer Peter Woodcock and mass murderers Matt Lamb and Victor Hoffman, he also fell into the hands of someone worse: Dr. Elliot T. Barker. Over the next eight months, Barker subjected Steve and the other patients to a battery of unorthodox experiments involving LSD, scopolamine, methamphetamines, and other drugs. Steven also experienced numerous other forms of abuse and torture. Following his release, Steve continued to suffer the aftereffects of his Oak Ridge experience. For several years, he found himself in and out of prison—and back to Oak Ridge—before he was finally able to establish himself as a successful entrepreneur. Once he began investigating what happened to him during his youth, not even Steve was prepared for what he would discover about Barker, Oak Ridge, and one of the darkest periods in Canada’s treatment of mental health patients. The question remains: Was Oak Ridge and Dr. Barker trying to cure psychopaths or trying to create and direct them?

Jon Ronson's Adventures With Extraordinary People collects together in a single volume three of Jon Ronson's bestselling titles, Them, The Men Who Stare at Goats and The Psychopath Test. Them charts Jon's discovery that extremists - Islamic fundamentalists, neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klansmen - all have one oddly similar belief: that a tiny, shadowy elite rule the world from a secret room. And so Jon sets out to locate that room. Chased by men in dark glasses and unmasked as a Jew in the middle of a Jihad training camp, Jon's journey is creepy as well as comic, and perhaps the extremists are on to something . . . The Men Who Stare at Goats tells the unbelievable story of the First Earth Battalion, established by the US Army in 1979 as a secret unit, they defied all known military practice, and even the laws of physics, in their belief that a soldier could become invisible, pass through walls and kill goats just by staring at them. And, as Jon discovers, they really weren't joking. The Psychopath Test sees Jon set out on an utterly compelling adventure into the world of madness. He meets psychopaths, those whose lives have been touched by madness and those whose job it is to diagnose it, from whom Jon learns the art of psychopath-spotting. And it soon becomes clear that madness could indeed be at the heart of everything . . . Often funny, sometimes chilling and always thought-provoking, these books combine Jon's trademark humour, charm and investigative incision whilst asking some very serious questions.

«Un viaje a través de la industria de la locura» Elegido Libro del Año 2011 por Amazon, Publisher's Weekly, Hudson Bookseller y Goodreads. Un grupo de neurólogos recibe un correo tan desconcertante que decide contactar con el periodista Jon Ronson: se trata de la historia de un preso que, supuestamente, fingió una enfermedad mental para obtener una sentencia más leve, pero que sigue ingresado en un penal psiquiátrico porque ningún médico cree que esté cuerdo. Ronson decide, entonces, ahondar un poco más en el tema y ver qué hay de cierto y qué de mera especulación en las diagnosis de locura que tan felizmente se prescriben en el mundo entero. Ronson tiene una suerte de epifanía cuando conoce a Robert Hare, un prestigioso psicólogo que desarrolló el test estándar que diagnostica la psicopatía. Jon aprende de Hare a descubrir a estos psicópatas y, armado con su nueva habilidad de cazador de locos, se adentra por los pasillos del poder y comienza a especular y a poner en tela de juicio la salud mental de amigos y conocidos para concluir que, o todos estamos un poco locos, olas definiciones sobre qué es locura deberían revisarse... Opiniones: «Jon Ronson nos relata, con el estilo irónico que lo caracteriza, una investigación sobre la locura#, unas veces intrigante, otras inquietante, y siempre absorbente.» The Bookseller («Bookseller's Choice») «Ronson nos divierte tanto como siempre, pero también aborda cuestiones importantes sobre cómo definimos la normalidad. Me encanta su habilidad para incitarnos a reflexionar sobre temas muy serios invitándonos a compartir su propia perplejidad.» The Bookseller

Bestselling author Jon Ronson walks the mean streets of America where he finds real life, modern day superheroes. Fighting crime, saving old ladies, and chasing away drug dealers – all while wearing a mask and a cape. Phoenix Jones patrols Seattle, masked, muscles rippling, while corner boys scatter and teenage runaways are helped, whether they want it or not. He might still see his pediatrician when superhero-ing gets a little too intense, but he’ll be back out there with his ass-kicking comrades as soon as he’s bandaged up. These do-gooding citizens talk the talk, and walk the walk of mythical superheroes – the only thing they're missing is actual supernatural powers. The Amazing Adventures of Phoenix Jones is an inside, intimate look at the world of amateur superheroes and a front row seat to their adventures.

~ Take a Glimpse Inside the Mind of a Psychopath... **Limited Edition** From the ~Personality Disorders and Mental Illnesses~ collection and the award winning writer, Paul Sorensen, comes a masterful explanation into the mind of a psychopath! "An excellent depiction of the modern day psychopath!" - Alex Lemmings, Book Critique When you first think of the term psychopath, the first thing that comes to mind for most people is the insane, insatiable serial killer. We expect the appearance of such a depraved individual to reflect the madness without. This couldn't be more wrong. The truth is, that charming person who holds the door open for you at work all the time, the charismatic ex you have that everyone loves, but had a bit of a mean streak behind closed doors, the guy from college who loved extreme sports, or even your surgeon - they are all quite possibly psychopaths. And, unless you know them intimately, and know what you're looking for, it's unlikely you'll ever spot it. So, what is a psychopath - really? How can you recognize it? Are they dangerous? Or do we as society actually really need them? How do we know if they're just a bad kid or could develop into something worse? This book will walk you through the history being psychopathy, how to recognize the signs, and what to do if you ever find yourself in a relationship with one. It also looks at new scientific developments and research into the condition, and profiles some of the ones that were truly evil - the world's worst. Let's hope your charming ex isn't one of those. Topics of Discussion - What is a Psychopath? - The Root of the Problem - A Day in the Life - Relationships with Psychopaths - Turning to Crime - Can Psychopaths be Cured? - The Psychopath Test - The World's Worst Psychopaths - and much more!
