I've always enjoyed Jon Ronson's writing and after hearing an extract from this book in an episode of This American Life I wanted to hear the rest. His approach to the people he interviewed was really objective and he let them tell their own stories, while ultimately all pointed to similar conclusions. Very interesting stuff.
Fascinating book which benefits from the author's delivery. At times surprising, scary and very funny, as well as informative. I cannot praise this book too highly.
Jon Ronson can make anything feel surreal, would recommend. So far I have read this and "So you've been publicly shamed" which you should listen to If you enjoyed this as much as me.

this guy reads like he believes everything he says, great story, I could not wait to get back into the car to hear more.
very very very very very very very very very very very very very very marvelous. They said I had to have 20 words and 5 unique words. But seriously it's was very marvelous. Highly recommend!
It takes a little while to get used to the style of Jon's narration and the meandering nature of the book but once you get into it you can't stop listening.
Well worth it, he gives an honest, balanced and interesting account of his dip of the toe into the less normal side of us all.

Not really, Jon Ronson has his own style so I am glad he was chosen to read it.
Brilliant narration by the author takes the listener right into his exploration of the subject matter and a test which is less distant from all of us than we might prefer to believe
I didn't know what to expect really, I generally read and listen to fiction, but I was hooked with this book. It had mystery and discovery and enlightenment. Interesting characters, who actually exist. Would, and have, recommended this, and will be getting further Jon Ronson books.
