Audible addict. Listens while commuting,walking and any chance possible. Enjoys all genres although is yet to read a sporting biography.
Listening to Jon Ronson tell a story is like being lucky enough to sit next to the most charismatic guest at a wedding. Don't kid yourself that this is a one trick pony. In a very short time he covers a wide range of anecdotal stories about the outsiders of the music scene. Some are funny, some are sad and some are simply astonishing. I can't wait to see the film.
I defy anybody listening to this not to want to investigate further into The Shaggs.
If I could give this book 6 stars out of 5, I would. Regardless of your interest in behavioural economics I think anybody would find this book absolutely fascinating. Perhaps it is because the author is blind, I can't be sure, but this is a truly unique way of writing which adapts perfectly to the audio format.
On top of being a great read, this is great science. There are a lot of experts in this field but the author is the person who made the groundbreaking discovery around the Paradox of choice which is now influencing policymakers and thinkers around the world.
