“Mary Turner Thomson’s extraordinary story is what inspired me to write The Psychopath Test. She has an incredible tale of survival at the hands of one of the most bizarre and nefarious manipulators who ever walked this earth.” ―Jon Ronson, author of The Psychopath Test
“The Psychopath is a wise, painful, and necessary book, full of insights about the damage done to society by the psychopaths among us. Mary’s deep understanding of manipulation and falsehood feels more urgent than ever…Not just compulsively readable and utterly fascinating, but contains valuable lessons about solidarity, alertness, and the power of human resilience. Mary’s message and example is, in the end, a profoundly optimistic one.” ―Marcel Theroux, author and broadcaster
