From the Sunday Times top ten best-selling author of The Psychopath Test, 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." For the past three years, Jon Ronson has travelled the world, meeting recipients of high-profile public shamings. The shamed are people like us - people who, say, made jokes on social media that came out badly or made mistakes at work.

"We are defining the boundaries of normality by tearing apart the people outside it"

Excellent conclusion drawn by the end on the perils of social media

Since rising out of the New York City streets over 25 years ago, Russell Simmons has helped create such ground breaking ventures as Def Jam Records, Phat Farm, and Def Comedy Jam, in the process becoming known the world over as "The CEO of Hip Hop". Russell might have helped introduce hip-hop to the world, but he credits his success to his belief in a strong set of principles, or laws, which he shares for the first time in this audio.

Excellent positive resource that I will refer back to in times I stray from my path in life.

At times a little one dimensional and occasionally descends into social commentary but full of fantastic advice, especially related to the power of meditation and yoga which I will explore further
