Overview

Review quote I'll read anything by my old pal Ronson, who always tackles serious topics with a sense of play and an appreciation for the absurd -- Sarah Vowell It is difficult to read this book and not feel equal parts righteous (because we wound never do the horrible things that the people in this book have done) and guilty (because we all have done the totally benign things that the people in this book have done), it's a terrifying and keen insight into a new form of misguided mass hysteria -- Jesse Eisenberg A fascinating exploration of modern media and public shaming. John Ronson has provided me so many dinner party conversation topics with this book. It's a great conversation starter -- Reese Witherspoon Simmering with humour, weirdness and pathos * Sunday Times, Books of the Year * Yes, it's a breezy read at the sentence level, but Ronson's latest book evokes a sense of dread that lingers. * TimeOut, Best Books of 2015 * [Ronson] takes on one of the most egregious perils of life in the age of social media - the whopping magnification of some gaffe or misstep or downright lie - to the point that it achieves life-wrecking power. . .there's a lot to learn from his funny, insightful look at this red-hot topic * New York Times, Top Books of 2015 *
