Louis landed in LAX the other day and was pap’d like every superstar is and being the bookworms we are, we couldn’t help but take interest in the book in his hand (as well as how incredibly gorgeous he looks) so we did a bit of research.
The book is ‘The Psychopath Test’ by Jon Ronson and here’s the summery we managed to find…
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.
*Adds onto never ending reading list*
You can get ‘The Psychopath Test’ for £2 from Amazon. What a bargain! Who knew Louis was into this kind of reading? The last book we remembering him reading was ‘Meltdown’ by Ben Elton (NO! Jimmy protested. Those were the days.)
If you’ve read this book, make sure you let us know your thoughts over on @maximumpop and we may bump it up our reading list a bit.
