My rating: 4 of 5 stars
a compendium of contemporary human weirdness. this book’s got reportage on everything from AI to SETI to motivational speakers to people who live to assist suicide to superheroes. plus pedophiles.
the pedophiles are the creepiest, but they’re followed close by the assisted suicide guys. and hot on their heels, the motivational speaker.
Ronson’s got a wonderful touch: light but skeptical. he asks some very impertinent questions, always a good quality in a writer. plus, i want his job.
a very enjoyable read, this one. thanks will-chan!
