Varios neurologos reciben un correo tan desconcertante que deciden contactar con el periodista Jon Ronson, autor de este libro, para tratar de resolver los enigmas que se esconden tras lo que acaban de conocer. Se trata de la historia de un preso que supuestamente fingio una enfermedad mental para obtener una sentencia mas leve, pero que en la actualidad sigue ingresado en un penal psiquiatrico porque ningun medico cree que este cuerdo. Jon Ronson decide, entonces, ahondar un poco mas en el tema y ver que hay de cierto y que de mera especulacion en las diagnosis de locura que tan felizmente se prescriben a diario en el mundo entero. Ronson tiene una suerte de epifania cuando conoce al prestigioso psicologo, Robert Hare, que desarrollo el test estandar que diagnostica la psicopatia y que esta convencido de que muchos ejecutivos importantes y politicos son, de hecho, verdaderos psicopatas. Jon aprende de el a descubrir a estos psicopatas de altos vuelos y, armado con su nueva habilidad de cazador de locos, se adentra por los pasillos del poder. / This is a book that explores the concept of psychopathy. Ronson visits purported psychopaths, as well as psychologists and psychiatrists who have studied them, and meets with Robert Hare, the eponymous author of the 20 part test administered to detect psychopathy. He explores the idea that many corporate and governmental leaders are psychopaths whose actions to others can only be explained by taking that fact into account, and he privately uses the Hare test to determine if he can discern any truth to it.
