The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson

I've known of Jon Ronson for awhile. Over the past year or two I happened to catch a few odd clips of him on NPR, but I never caught his name, or the titles of his books. I caught just enough of his interesting stories and distinctive voice to be intrigued, but never quite enough to find him on the internet. And then, entirely by chance, Amazon did me a solid favor by sliding The Psychopath Test into their recommendations. I scooped it up in a sale on Audible, promptly listened to it, and have already moved on to So You've Been Publicly Shamed. Obviously, I'm enjoying Ronson's work. So much so that I've put my reading as well as some home remodeling on hold to write a quick review.

Peanut Butter-Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

It's also consistent, whereas some of the other recipes I've tried turn out different every time. Everyone who has tried them seems to agree. I barely had time to photograph them before they were already being eaten.
