520    "A fun, frightening, and always fascinating look into the 
       psyche of a madman: the Clown Prince of Crime, the 
       Harlequin of Hate--The Joker! Since he first fought Batman
       in 1940, The Joker has evolved into one of popular 
       culture's most complex and confounding psychological 
       creations: both a criminal mastermind and an unhinged 
       psychopath now starring in his own film. In The Joker 
       Psychology: Evil Clowns and the Women Who Love Them, Dr. 
       Travis Langley, author of the bestselling Batman and 
       Psychology, returns to Gotham City to explore the twisted 
       psyche of this great supervillain, as well as the 
       personalities who are inexorably drawn to it. Paying 
       special attention to the strange dynamics of relationships
       like the one between The Joker and Harley Quinn, this 
       collection of 15 chapters (including some very special 
       interviews with the people who brought The Joker and 
       Harley Quinn to life in comics and onscreen), this 
       collection analyzes: Why a bright, laughing monster who 
       looks like a clown could be the ultimate antagonist to a 
       grim, brooding hero who looks like a monster. The 
       relationship between a therapist and her patient--and what
       happens when a therapist crosses the line, as Harley Quinn
       does when she falls for The Joker. How a smart person 
       could fall for the most dangerous of criminals. Why so 
       many fans find Harley Quinn inspirational. How different 
       kinds of therapy could (or could not) help twisted minds 
       like Mister J and Harley Quinn. The development of a 
       fictional character that so completely embodies 
       psychopathy (including interviews with creators who have 
       shaped The Joker's character over the years)."--|cProvided
