Is there different versions of the American Psycho book?
You may have heard this from someone who has read the book Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis.
He describes the process of writing the book, in a very creepy manner, and there are parts that he (the fictional Bret Easton Ellis, protagonist of Lunar Park) edited out himself before submitting it to his publisher. Some of those parts are mimicked (he hopes) by a Pat Bateman impersonator (he hopes) and he has to rush back to his home in California to make sure his original manuscript hasn't been stolen by someone.
The version published, supposedly, is not missing anything from the time Ellis said it was ready to be published. A lot of women's rights groups (reactionist morons) said the book was unnecessarily masochistic and should be banned from publishing. But Alfred A. Knopf proved that it was a publisher with some balls and did not back down to the demands of an over reacting minority. The book is a beautiful, poignant satire as well as a stance for freedom of speech.
And, thankfully, it is the way the author intended for it to be read.

Does he like to attract everyone in the room? It's probably the second reason if it's this.

What is the difference between a psycho person and a mad person?
Well, theyre practically the same thing..."youve gone mad" is basically expressing "youre crazy" as in something is wrong with you and you should try to fix it. Psycho is practically the same thing, the only difference may be that if you call someone psycho it may mean that theyre a little worse off and might be harder to fix...really, its a good question, but its kinda based on opinion, or how you take it...
Oxymoron is cruel kindness.
I think oxymoron would not be an apt word to describe
the quality of the pocket psycho.
Kindness disappears totally, when necessity arises for such
persons to prevent the other people from knowing their
