Ronson investigates the strange things we are willing to believe in, from lifelike robots programmed with the personalities of our loved ones to indigo children to hyper successful spiritual healers. He looks at ordinary lives that take on extraordinary perspectives, for instance a pop singer whose greatest passion is the coming alien invasion, and the scientist designated to greet those aliens when they arrive. Ronson throws himself into the stories. In a tour de force piece, he splits himself into multiple Ronsons (Happy, Paul, and Titch, among others) to get to the bottom of predatory tactics of credit card companies and the murky, fabulously wealthy companies behind those tactics. Amateur nuclear physicists, assisted-suicide practitioners, the town of North Pole, a Christmas-induced high school mass-murder plot: 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.… (mere)

I loved this book. A series of essays and articles. Full of laughter, sadness, horror and strange things people believe. ( )
  cdaley | Nov 2, 2023 |
This book was very interesting, and enjoyably written. It has a dry sense of humor, I thought was really funny. i also liked that it treated its subjects with empathy. Overall, I would recommend to anyone looking to get into reading non fiction. ( )

Great book on the idiosyncratic people of modern life. ( )
  mumoftheanimals | Nov 19, 2021 |
While Ronson didn't quite finish any of the many anecdotes he relates in this volume, for some reason, I found myself enjoying much more than the last couple of books. He seems to be better with the shorter form.

I found my imagination captured with many of the stories collected here. I can't say much more than I had more fun with this one, perhaps because it was more of a buffet than a single overlong dish. ( )

This is a collection of a wide variety of interviews with very strange people across the US and UK. ( )
