Jon Ronson

The journey that led Ronson to writing The Psychopath Test began after he met a leading neurologist mystified by a puzzling book she’d been sent. While solving this mystery, Ronson met the influential psychologist who developed the industry standard ‘psychopath test’ and who is convinced that many important CEOs and politicians are, in fact, psychopaths.

Jon Ronson will be in conversation with Sam Pang.
