The Case of John Hinckley: Borderline Personality Disorder

The Case of John Hinckley (Borderline Personality Disorder) discusses the life and times of John Hinckley from his normal childhood to his attack on the President, Ronald Reagan. Hinckley would become a bit of a drifter moving from place to place and somewhere along the line would seem to lose touch with reality.

Publisher's Summary

The Case of John Hinckley (Borderline Personality Disorder) discusses the life and times of John Hinckley from his normal childhood to his attack on the President, Ronald Reagan. Hinckley would become a bit of a drifter moving from place to place and somewhere along the line would seem to lose touch with reality.

His fascination with the movie Taxi Driver would cause a romantic inclination toward actress and star of the movie, Jodie Foster. Foster would respond harshly toward any advances Hinckley would make in her direction. In the end, it would be Hinckley's infatuation for the actress as his defense for the attack on the President.

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

    It would help if this were written in narrative, and the author had used past tense to describe past events.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Steven G Carley again?

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Steven G Carley’s performances?

    No.


    What character would you cut from The Case of John Hinckley?

    Steven G Carley


    Any additional comments?

    It sounds like the author is reading a term paper for high school, presented as a series of bullet points. The author uses future tense to describe past events,e.g. "Hinckley would be born in ..."

    The author gets confused part way through his description of Borderline Personality Disorder and starts referring to bipolar disorder. He describes BPD but makes no link to Hinckley's behavior.

    The best thing I can say about the book is that it is short.

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

    If the author could write and narrate.


    What was most disappointing about Steven G Carley’s story?

    It is not even the tip of the iceberg of John Hinckley. Also, the author's inability to write.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Steven G Carley’s performances?

    No way in--I mean, no, never.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Case of John Hinckley?

    I would have thrown the whole thing out and wrote my own narrative of John Hinckley.


    Any additional comments?

    You can probably get more information by reading the Wikipedia page of John Hinckley and you wouldn't have to deal with the voice of the narrator.
