Publisher Description

A collection of mini-adventure stories from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Psychopath Test

Jon Ronson has been on patrol with America's real-life superheroes and to a UFO convention in the Nevada desert with Robbie Williams. He's met a man who tried to split the atom in his kitchen and asked a conscious robot if she's got a soul.

Fascinated by madness, strange behaviour and the human mind, Jon has spent his life exploring mysterious events and meeting extraordinary people. Collected here from various sources (including the Guardian and GQ) are the best of his adventures.

Frequently hilarious, sometimes disturbing, always entertaining, these fascinating stories of the chaos that lies on the fringe of our daily lives will have you wondering just what we're capable of.

A unique voice

Less is more with Jon Ronson. His way of showing not telling reveals a razor sharp wit. He has a great skill for the finding the absurdities of life that exist within the mainstream, unnoticed by the rest of us. These stories are intriguing, often funny, skilfully and tactfully related. A great collection.
