Coming in May 2011.

Book cover for popular This American Life commentator Jon Ronson who conducts an investigation into the essential components of psychopathy. Long term mental patients, high powered business executives and politicians are interviewed under the same criteria and some alarming similarities are found. Equal parts funny and horrific.

Art direction: Helen Yentus

Wow, thank you guys—incredibly kind of you all to chime in. This was a legitimately great project that I consider myself lucky to have been asked to work on. All of the alternate comps (and there were roughly a billion) will be posted whenever I get a free minute to exhale.

@Jason Gabbert Thank you too much, kind sir. That book was a wild ride that has not yet concluded (I'm working on the mech now). Hope all's well in your universe. The Alan Dean Foster series you did looks excellent. Great work, there.
