A rebuttal to Ronson’s book – The Psychopath Test

I was so happy to come across this response today from the Society for the Scientific Study of Psychopathy (SSSP) to Ronson’s book, ‘The Psychopath Test’. I have never been overly impressed with Ronson, and it always seemed to me that from what I had found out about Hare’s PCL-R, didn’t quite match up with Ronson’s take on it.

“In short, we think that Ronson’s book trivializes a serious personality disorder and its measurement, which is not helpful to those who have the disorder or to their unfortunate victims.”
