Jon Ronson’s Psychopath Afternoon

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2018.

Pull back the shower curtain on an afternoon full of psychopaths. Author Jon Ronson presents this fascinating, disturbing matinee show, recounting the funny, terrifying and utterly mad events that led to the creation of his bestselling book The Psychopath Test. It spent a year on the UK’s bestseller lists and ten weeks on The New York Times Best Seller list, so you won’t want to miss this. Hear from Jon, explore the concept of psychopathy and find out how it sits within the broader mental health “industry” of medical professionals and the mass media.
