Book Description :

From Jon Ronson, the Sunday Times top ten bestselling author of The Psychopath Test, this is a captivating and brilliant exploration of one of our world's most underappreciated forces: shame. 'It's about the terror, isn't it?' 'The terror of what?' I said. 'The terror of being found out.' Jon Ronson has travelled the world meeting recipients of high-profile public shamings. The shamed are people like us – people who, say, made a joke on social media that came out badly, or made a mistake at work. Once their transgression is revealed, collective outrage circles with the force of a hurricane and the next thing they know they're being torn apart by an angry mob, jeered at, demonized, sometimes even fired from their job. A great renaissance of public shaming is sweeping our land. Justice has been democratized. The silent majority are getting a voice. But what are we doing with our voice? We are mercilessly finding people's faults. We are defining the boundaries of normality by ruining the lives of those outside it. We are using shame as a form of social control. Simultaneously powerful and hilarious in the way only Jon Ronson can be, So You've Been Publicly Shamed is a deeply honest book about modern life, full of eye-opening truths about the escalating war on human flaws – and the very scary part we all play in it.

Book Description :

Discover the captivating and brilliant exploration of one of our world’s most underappreciated forces: shame. What do you think of when you hear the word “shame?” For many, shame is perhaps worse than any possible punishment. After all, we spend our lives building a career, a reputation, and a family, and one thing can take it all away: shame. The shamed people today are people just like you or me. They are people who made a joke on social media that came out badly or made a mistake at work. But once that transgression is revealed to the public, collective outrage overcomes the victim, and they find themselves at the center of an angry mob who will stop at nothing until justice is served. Today, the silent majority have been given a voice, but what are we doing with it? We are ruthlessly finding faults in people and using shame as a form of social control. As you read, you’ll learn how easy a small mistake can turn into a public shaming campaign, the damaging effects public shaming has on its victims, and how costly it is to salvage your reputation once it’s been marred.

Book Description :

In part one, read about the time Jon inadvertently made a lewd gesture to a passing fourteen-year-old girl late at night in the lobby of a country-house hotel. And about his burgeoning obsession with a new neighbour who refused to ask him what he did for a living, despite Jon’s constant dropping of intriguing hints. And about the embarrassment of being caught recycling small talk at a party. In part two, read some of Jon’s longer stories, which explore manifestations of insanity in the wider world: the tiny town of North Pole, Alaska, where it’s Christmas 365 days of the year; behind the scenes at Deal or No Deal, which Jon likens to a cult with Noel Edmonds as its high priest; a meeting with TV hypnotist Paul McKenna, who has joined forces with a self-help guru who once stood trial for murder – but can they cure Jon of his one big phobia? As hilarious as it is perturbing, Jon Ronson’s new collection is a treat for everyone who has ever suspected themselves to be at the mercy of forces they can barely comprehend.

Book Description :

Jon Ronson’s subjects have included people who believe that goats can be killed by the power of a really hard stare, and people who believe that the world is ruled by twelve-foot lizard-men. In Out of the Ordinary, a collection of his journalism from the Guardian, he turns his attention to irrational beliefs much closer to home, investigating the ways in which we sometimes manage to convince ourselves that all manner of lunacy makes perfect sense – mainstream, domestic, ordinary insanity. Whether he finds himself promising his son that he will be at his side for ever, dressed in a Santa costume, or trying to understand why hundreds of apparently normal people would suddenly start speaking in tongues in a Scout hut in Kidderminster, he demonstrates repeatedly how we all succumb to deeply irrational beliefs that grow to inform our everyday existence. Out of the Ordinary is Jon Ronson at his inimitable best: hilarious, thought-provoking and with an unerring eye for human frailty – not least his own. Praise for The Men Who Stare at Goats: ‘Not only a narcotic road trip through the wackier reaches of Bush’s war effort, but also an unmissable account of some of the insanity that has lately been done in our names’ Observer Praise for Them: Adventures with Extremists: ‘A funny and compulsively readable picaresque adventure through a paranoid shadow world’ Louis Theroux, Guardian

This is photographer Stephen Gill's guide to his world of objects, scenes and the things we do - so familiar and obvious they fall below the usual threshold of people's attention. Producing series of images in and around London since 1999 - cash points, lost people, the back of advertising billboards and people gazing vacantly out of the window on the London-Southend train - Gill's scrutiny of the visual details of the everyday combines formal rigour with empathy towards his human subjects.

Book Description :

“Funny, nuanced and wonderful” -Jon Ronson, bestselling author of SO YOU'VE BEEN PUBLICLY SHAMED and THE PSYCHOPATH TEST “Outraged is as hilarious as it is smart, and as insightful as it is provocative. A book that had me hollering, nodding and questioning at the same time.” -Candice Carty-Williams, author of Queenie A candid exploration of the state of outrage in our culture, how it debases our civil discourse, and how we can channel it back into the fights that matter, from radio host Ashley "Dotty" Charles. We're living in a post-modern utopia of sorts, where thanks to our resolute predecessors, we've checked a bunch of items off our outrage shopping list. Slavery? Abolished. Apartheid? Not anymore buddy. Women's suffrage? Nailed it. But what do you do when you keep winning your battles? Well, you pick new ones, of course. Ours is a society where many get by on provocation, the tactless but effective tool of peddling outrage--and we all too quickly take the bait. If outrage has become abundant, activism has definitely become subdued. Are we so exhausted from our hashtags that we simply don't have the energy to be outraged in the real world? Or are we simply pretending to be bothered? There is still much to be outraged by in our final frontier--the gender pay gap, racial bias, gun control--but in order to enact change, we must learn to channel our responses. Passionate, funny and unrelentingly wise, this is the essential guide to living through the age of outrage.

Book Description :

Varios neur�logos reciben un correo tan desconcertante que deciden contactar con el periodista Jon Ronson, autor de este libro, para tratar de resolver los enigmas que se esconden tras lo que acaban de conocer. Se trata de la historia de un preso que supuestamente fingi� una enfermedad mental para obtener una sentencia m�s leve, pero que en la actualidad sigue ingresado en un penal psiqui�trico porque ning�n m�dico cree que est� cuerdo. Jon Ronson decide, entonces, ahondar un poco m�s en el tema y ver qu� hay de cierto y qu� de mera especulaci�n en las diagnosis de locura que tan felizmente se prescriben a diario en el mundo entero. Ronson tiene una suerte de epifan�a cuando conoce al prestigioso psic�logo, Robert Hare, que desarroll� el test est�ndar que diagnostica la psicopat�a y que est� convencido de que muchos ejecutivos importantes y pol�ticos son, de hecho, verdaderos psic�patas. Jon aprende de �l a descubrir a estos psic�patas de altos vuelos y, armado con su nueva habilidad de cazador de locos, se adentra por los pasillos del poder. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Ronson visits psychopaths and the psychologists and psychiatrists that have studied them, and meets with Robert Hare, the author of the 20 part test administered to detect psychopathy. He explores the idea that many corporate and governmental leaders are psychopaths by discretely using Hare's test on them.

"There's me 'out there', in public, and there's me in here. I know you think they're not the same. But they're not as far away as you think." Created by the Almeida Young Company and written by Molly Taylor, Cacophony tells the story of a young woman's rise to fame after speaking up at a protest outside a controversial rape trial. Weaving a complex web of fame and shame, Cacophony explores the power social media has to liberate brave new voices and, just as quickly, bring them crashing to earth. Inspired by the ideas in Jon Ronson's book, So You've Been Publicly Shamed. "When public shamings are delivered like remotely administered drone strikes nobody need think about how ferocious our collective power might be. The snow ake never needs to feel responsible for the avalanche." JON RONSON Cacophony received its UK premiere at the Almeida Theatre from 26-28 July 2018, and transferred to the Yard Theatre from19-22 February 2019, in a production directed by Michael Bryher.

Book Description :

Comic Performativities: Identity, Internet Outrage, and the Aesthetics of Communication studies patterns of criticism and public debate in the relationship between humour, identity, and offense. In an increasingly reductive and politically charged debate, right-wing pundits argue leftist politics has compromised a free and open discussion, while scholars take right-wing critics to task for reifying systems of oppression under the guise of reason and respect. In response, Goltz scrutinises twenty-first century "comedic controversies," the notion of "political correctness," and the so-called "outrage machine" of social media. How should we appropriately determine whether a joke is "sexist," "racist," or "offensive"? Informed by communication, performance, and critical identity theory, Goltz examines infamous controversies involving performers like Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer, and Seth MacFarlane, and the social media backlash that redefined these events. He investigates the ironic interplay between spoken word, identity, physicality and, as a result, the contrasting meanings potentially construed. Consequently, the book encourages a greater appreciation of the aesthetics involved in comedic performance that help signpost interpretation and emphasizes the role of the audience as self-reflexive and self-aware. This book highlights the significant parallels between the nature of performance art and comedic performance in order to elevate analysis of, and discussion around, contemporary comedy. In doing so, it is an important critical contribution to the field of performance studies and cultural criticism, as well as communication studies, at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Un tweet malheureux, un plagiat, une remarque de mauvais goût qui vous échappe et, avec les réseaux sociaux, c'est désormais le monde entier qui peut vous tomber dessus. En quittant ainsi la sphère personnelle, la honte a depuis quelques années connu une promotion inespérée. Grand reporter d'un genre très particulier, Jon Ronson est allé à la rencontre de quelques célèbres honteux malgré eux. Au-delà de ces portraits, parfois dramatiques, parfois désopilants, il s'interroge sur cette nouvelle forme insidieuse du contrôle social. Derrière son écran, la majorité silencieuse s'en donne en effet à coeur joie pour clouer au pilori, pointer les fautes des autres, s'en réjouir. Et aujourd'hui, une journée où personne n'est montré du doigt sur la Toile finit par être ennuyeuse, sinon décevante. Comme si une bonne humiliation publique pouvait nous redonner des couleurs. Seraient-ce les nouveaux jeux du cirque ? Après Etes-vous psychopathe ? (Sonatine Editions, 2017), on retrouve ici le style unique et l'humanité débordante de Jon Ronson.
