Look out Jon Ronson‘s new book – ‘So you’ve been publicly shamed’ will be in libraries very soon
His other books get lots of high ratings from Leeds Readers for example –‘The Psychopath Test: a journey through the madness industry’ and ‘Lost at Sea: The Jon Ronson Mysteries’
His new book is about public shaming, which seems to be a new trend in society. It started with his online identity being stolen in 2012.
He publicly confronted the imposters, a trio of academics who had created a Jon Ronson Twitter bot obsessed by unlikely food combinations and weird sex. At first, Jon was delighted to find strangers all over the world uniting to support him in his outrage. The wrongdoers were quickly shamed into stopping.
That’s when things got out of hand. This encounter prompted him to explore the phenomenon of public shaming and what he discovered astonished him. Simultaneously powerful and hilarious in the way only Jon Ronson can be, this is a deeply honest book about modern life, full of eye-opening truths about the escalating war on human flaws – and our very scary part in it.
