    "Thought-provoking distinctions to mull over!"
    Where does Psychosis vs. Psychopathy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is up there near the top, particularly in the non-fiction category.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The back-and-forth quality of the dialogue was surprisingly dynamic. I had expected the quality of the exchange to be slightly humdrum, given the topic. The surprise really arose organically as the discussion took on greater levels of analysis.


    Which character – as performed by Norma Jean Gradsky and J.-M. Kuczynski – was your favorite?

    Norma really gathered steam near the end of the performance, although J.M. added a flourish with an ending a bit like the "Burns and Allen Show." I would probably lean slightly toward Norma due to the strong ending.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    The most fascinating move was to delve into the institutional context rather than simply trying to define psychopathy in some abstract way given a particular axiology (ethical, normative value system). When psychopathy was considered contextually and then societally, it really made me wonder about how a trait like lack of compassion can appear to be so ethically healthy or even obligatory.


    Any additional comments?

    Psychosis was broached at the outset and distinguished from psychopathy. It would be interesting to hear more of an explanation about why psychosis isn't more prevalent in American society and why, for instance, it's virtually absent in other cultures.

    "fast paced and sharp"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Psychosis vs. Psychopathy to be better than the print version?

    way, way better. this is a dialogue, meant to be heard, not read


    What did you like best about this story?

    the quick back and forth.


    What about J.-M. Kuczynski and Norma Jean Gradsky ’s performance did you like?

    the realistic character of their exchange.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, it was short, but not too short. and a lot of content.


    Any additional comments?

    unique and very, very witty.
