I recently heard about a book called, The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry by Jon Ronson. I've downloaded it to my Kindle to read the first chapter. I already know that I'll buy it because of the subject material. One of the books that's been helpful to me in my research is: Andrew Scull's, The Masters of Bedlam. It's a book about the early practice of psychiatry, what was better known then as The Mad-Doctoring Trade or The Lunacy Trade.
