📒The Psychopath Test ✍ Jon Ronson
📝The Psychopath Test Book Synopsis : In this madcap journey, a bestselling journalist investigates psychopaths and the industry of doctors, scientists, and everyone else who studies them. The Psychopath Test is a fascinating journey through the minds of madness. Jon Ronson's exploration of a potential hoax being played on the world's top neurologists takes him, unexpectedly, into the heart of the madness industry. An influential psychologist who is convinced that many important CEOs and politicians are, in fact, psychopaths teaches Ronson how to spot these high-flying individuals by looking out for little telltale verbal and nonverbal clues. And so Ronson, armed with his new psychopath-spotting abilities, enters the corridors of power. He spends time with a death-squad leader institutionalized for mortgage fraud in Coxsackie, New York; a legendary CEO whose psychopathy has been speculated about in the press; and a patient in an asylum for the criminally insane who insists he's sane and certainly not a psychopath. Ronson not only solves the mystery of the hoax but also discovers, disturbingly, that sometimes the personalities at the helm of the madness industry are, with their drives and obsessions, as mad in their own way as those they study. And that relatively ordinary people are, more and more, defined by their maddest edges.

📒The Psychopath Factory ✍ Tristam Vivian Adams
📝The Psychopath Factory Book Synopsis : Psychopaths seem to be everywhere. They are on the news and at the movies. People who lack empathy, be they ruthless entrepreneurs or crazed spree killers are frequently labeled psychopathic; the charming socialiser is just as suspect as the awkward anti-social loner. The conception of what defines a psychopath seems to be a morass of contradictions, the only consistency being the supposition of a lack of empathy. The Psychopath Factory: How Capitalism Organises Empathy examines how the requirements, stimuli, affects and environments of work condition our empathy. In some cases, work calls for no empathy characters who don t blink or flinch in the face of danger nor crack under pressure. In other cases, capitalism requires empathy in spades charming, friendly, sensitive and listening managers, customer service agents and careers. When workers are required to either ignore their empathy to-do a job, or dial it up to increase productivity, they are entering a psychopathic modality. The affective blitz of work, flickering screens, emotive content, vibrating alerts and sounding alarms erode our sensitivities whilst we are modulated with attention stimulants, social lubricants and so called anti-anxiety drugs. This is amidst a virulent and exacerbating climate of competition and frenzied quantification. Capitalism pressures us to feign empathy and leverage social relationships on one hand, whilst being cold and pragmatic on the other. We are passionate and enthusiastic whilst keeping a professional distance. Sympathy, care, compassion and altruism are important; The Psychopath Factory: How Capitalism Organises Empathy argues that it is a mistake to presuppose that empathy can achieve these. Rather than being subject to the late capitalist organisation of our empathy, psychopathy could be a means of escape.

📒Social Theory The Psychopath ✍ Julien Coallier
📝Social Theory the Psychopath Book Synopsis : This paper uses research on PCL-R testing using labelling theory and the general crime theory as an integrated approach for examining the psychopath. Findings indicate hypocrisy plays a significant factor in the formation of psychopaths by causing the psychopath to increase potency of ideology from deviancy as social reactions towards labels intended to confront, isolate, punish, or deter, act to reinforce the ideology to deviancy. Whereas general crime theory focuses on the actions of the psychopath as having to do with ideology, the labeling theory helps explain how deviants develop into no longer caring for that which is not their deviance, or to lose desire to prevent themselves from being deviant.

📒Crime And Criminality ✍ Sandie Taylor
📝Crime and Criminality Book Synopsis : The question of ‘why’ and ‘how’ certain individuals are drawn towards behaving in a way that contravenes the ‘Law of the Land’ is not an easy one to address. Researchers from various different fields have nevertheless attempted to develop theoretical explanations for the existence of different types of crime and why some individuals commit such acts. Crime and Criminality draws on criminology, sociology, psychology and neuroscience to offer a balanced perspective of crime, the criminal and criminality. Coverage includes: a comprehensive discussion of theoretical approaches to criminal behaviour, including biological, social and ‘rational choice’ approaches; an analysis of legal and social definitions of crime and how these definitions influence the way specific behaviours are labelled as criminal; an examination of different types of crime and criminals, from delinquents to ‘psychopaths’ and sex offenders; an exploration of different ways in which crime is predicted, including risk assessment and offender profiling and an overview of investigative techniques. Addressing a broad range of topics and offering a synthesis of competing theoretical explanations of criminality, this book is essential reading for students taking courses in criminology, criminal psychology, criminal behaviour, forensic psychology and psychological criminology.

📒Calvin The Psychopath ✍ Rear Admiral Joseph H. Miller
📝Calvin the Psychopath Book Synopsis : This book concerns true salvation. Many original Christian writings were written to refute false teachings or heresy. This is the justification for this book. The heresy of Calvinism has risen and fallen several times since its origin. The concept of predestination is noted by several people in the 1000 years before Calvin. Muslims believe in predestination. Calvin had no original thoughts. He invented a system of terror to force his beliefs. The belief that some babies are born to go to hell to show God's glory (Calvin) is horrible. This book refutes those false interpretations. Reforms have occurred since the beginning. Adam and Eve reformed to become closer to God. Peter, John, and Paul fought Gnosticism in the early Church. Justin Martyr, Charlemagne, Constantine, Augustine, Patrick, Bede, Eriugena, King Alfred, Dustan, (the Tenth-Century Reformation), Anselm, Ockhan, Wyclif, Waldo, Hus, Gutenberg, (The printing press was the most powerful influence in the Reformation.), Wesel, Gerson, Luther, Melanchthon, Oecolampadius, Zwingli, Farel, Bullinger, Calvin, Beza, Bucer, Larimer, Hooper, Rildey, Knox, Erasmus, Paracelsus, Durer were all reformers (There are others not listed here.) In a review of the history of all the reformations in religion Calvin was only a speck. Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion is reviewed in some detail. This reveals a distortion of Scripture, a lack of knowledge of the love of Christ, and ignorance that Christ died for "the sins of the whole world." (I John 2:2) This book gives the simple process of true salvation and also an in-depth review for those who like to explore the deep recesses of knowledge.
