The Independent“Ronson's writing is wonderfully understated...” After the first rollercoaster chapter of The Psychopath Test, you know you're in for another terrifying but hilarious ride, this time through the world of the madness industry...

The Observer“Provocative and interesting” His subject is huge and tragic and terrifying but there is something tinny and unfinished about his investigation...
