Klappentext What if society wasn't fundamentally rational, but was motivated by insanity? This thought sets Jon Ronson on an utterly compelling adventure into the world of madness. Along the way, Jon meets psychopaths, those whose lives have been touched by madness and those whose job it is to diagnose it, including the influential psychologist who developed the Psychopath Test, from whom Jon learns the art of psychopath-spotting. A skill which seemingly reveals that madness could indeed be at the heart of everything . . . Combining Jon Ronson's trademark humour, charm and investigative incision, The Psychopath Test is both entertaining and honest, unearthing dangerous truths and asking serious questions about how we define normality in a world where we are increasingly judged by our maddest edges.

Additional text

Sehr lustig und sehr verstörend. Ronson taucht ab in der Welt der Psychopathen, über diejenigen, die sie behandeln und jene, die gutes Geld mit ihnen verdienen! Er trifft Strafgefangene, die eine psychische Störung vorgetäuscht haben, um eine leichtere Strafe zu erhalten und nun in der Psychatrie festsitzen und Ärzte, die einen 20 Punkte Katalog aufgestellt haben, an denen man einen Psychopathen erkennen soll und vermuten, dass so manche Person des öffentlichen Lebens, diverse Punkte davon erfüllt. Eine unterhaltsame Reportage über das sensible Gleichgewicht zwischen psychischer Stabilität und Wahnsinn.
