{CURRENTLY READING} So You've Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson. I'm taking my time with this one. #springreads

Ronson investigates the strange things we’re willing to believe in, from lifelike robots programmed with our loved ones’ personalities to indigo children to hypersuccessful spiritual healers to the Insane Clown Posse’s juggalo fans. Ronson explores all these tales with a sense of higher purpose and universality, and suddenly, mid-read, they are stories not about the fringe of society or about people far removed from our own experience, but about all of us.

The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson

The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson | PenguinRandomHouse.com Amazing book I had to share from Penguin Random House

Jon Ronson, writer, journalist, documentary filmmaker and all round decent chap. When I emailed him about a book idea I'd heard him discuss on the radio, he replied to thank me. It was a small gesture, but it showed the character of the man, I think.

This Public Shaming Is Not Like The Other

This Public Shaming Is Not Like The Other Jon Ronson’s So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed is a critique of the social media shaming plague — but it’s really a book that highlights Ronson’s own anxieties about giving voice to the historically powerless.

Nonfiction - Brit journalist with wry sense of humor goes in search of what it means to be a pyschopath. Funny, horrifying, enlightening. You'll never look at people the same!
