    The Psychopath Test is a fascinating journey through the minds of madness. Jon Ronson's exploration of a potential hoax being played on the world's top neurologists takes him, unexpectedly, into the heart of the madness industry. An influential psychologist who is convinced that many important CEOs and politicians are, in fact, psychopaths teaches Ronson how to spot these high-flying individuals by looking out for little telltale verbal and nonverbal clues.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I forced myself to stick with it for a couple of hours but had to walk away. It is tedious at best.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Hard to understand - I am usually just fine with English accents, but not this one.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None. It bored me to tears.


    Any additional comments?

    Run. To save your ears from bleeding, just run!

    Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won 25 Emmys in its remarkable 11-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another.

    Robin says: "Do not listen while driving"
    "We really do share this time"
    Overall

    Carol Burnett truly does speak to you as she reads her book. I feel as though we're friends who've shared laughs and tears. I missed seeing her in person last night at Proctors Theatre; I'll always regret not having taken advantage of the opportunity.
