I just did not connect with this book the same way I did to The Men Who Stare at Goats. Maybe because it takes forever to get to the damn point, or maybe because (sorry) the author/narrator's voice is so monotonous. I quit pretty early on.

Jon Ronson narrating his own books is the way it should be! I first saw him giving a presentation online and I wasn't sure how comfortable it would be listening to his unique accent for many hours, but I quickly got used to it, and his delivery is perfect for his writing.

My first Jon Ronson experience was The Men Who Stare At Goats, a book that investigates U.S. Army officers tasked with trying to disintegrate live goats with their brains. True story. In The Psychopath Test, Jon delves deeply into the nature of psychopathy in both our prisons and our Fortune 500 companies. It’s the dark and twisty kind of humor; the kind that hurts a little because you know it’s true. But afterward, you will feel a little qualified to identify psychopaths by the dozens in your own life. Sooo worth it. Jon Ronson’s voice is awesome because it screams “I am a timid British man in spectacles and an adorable sweater vest!” Also, “Jon Ronson” rhymes with “Ron Swanson.” Coincidence?
