When a group of Mensa-level strangers each receives a book of cryptic notes and M.C. Escher drawings from an unknown source they hire journalist Ron Ronson to find out why. After a bit of detective work he offers the answer but it’s not what the sages were expecting.
The effect of the hoax on the recipients becomes the starting point for a fascinating look at the definition of madness and the industry of labeling psychopaths. Ronson even confronts a few individuals who just might qualify for the diagnosis. It all makes for a very interesting read!
