Free First Chapters: The 5th Annual Tournament of Audiobooks

This year, we've added a new feature to the Tournament of Audiobooks: Free First Chapters. You can sample the first chapter of any of the competing books free to help you make an informed decision on which way to vote. The selection process was no easy task, but we believe that these 32 performances represent the best audiobooks from the past year and meet a standard of excellence that will make this one of our most competitive—and exciting—tournaments ever. If you're not registered with Audible, click through to the book's detail page to add the chapter to your cart.

Please note that the chapters are available throughout the tournament until it ends on April 24th. Remember, some chapters are longer, some are short, but we think that these give you a good flavor of the book.

  • The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry (Free Excerpt)

    • UNABRIDGED (21 mins)
    • By Jon Ronson
    • Narrated By Jon Ronson

    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.
