Jon Ronson knows how to tell a tale. He brings together people from all walks of life, from war criminals to CEOs, to show the depths of the human psyche. Great for car rides or listening on the go.
I've had this book in my library for a long time and am glad that I finally got a chance to listen. This was an immensely interesting book about quantifying and categorizing behaviors so that names can be given to a spectrum of mental illnesses. Ronson takes us on a journey through some of "the madness industry" - who can be classified as a psychopath, can children have Childhood Bi-Polar Disorder? We are given no specific answers, but lots of "food for thought". Ronson's voice is unique and it took me awhile to be comfortable listening to him again (I had heard him narrating "The Family Portrait"), but I ended up enjoying his style - it made the book more intimate and personal.
Have listened to this many times. Love Jon Ronson and love all of his work. This book is no exception. He does a fantastic performance as only one who was there could do. Love it when the authors read their own books and Jon does a remarkable job.
Highly recommend all of his works.
