'So You've Been Publicly Shamed' By Jon Ronson

  In the new book: So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed, Jon Ronson investigates the world of public shaming, where social media has made everyone a vigilante and where a poorly phrased tweet or comment can catapult a person to Public Enemy No. 1 overnight.

Shaming moves with lighting speed and has a terrifyingly powerful effect, sometimes destroying a person’s entire life. Ronson follows up with those whose lives have been left in tatters, and questions those being most cruel in the anonymous internet playground, resulting in a powerful and very humane dispatch from the front line of the escalating war on human nature and its flaws.

Jon Ronson’s books include the New York Times bestsellers The Psychopath Test, Them: Adventures with Extremists and The Men Who Stare at Goats.
