Product description

UPDATED EDITION INCLUDING TWO EXTRA STORIES Jon Ronson has been on patrol with America's real-life superheroes and to a UFO convention in the Nevada desert with Robbie Williams. He's met a man who tried to split the atom in his kitchen and asked a conscious robot if she's got a soul. Fascinated by madness, strange behaviour and the human mind, Jon has spent his life exploring mysterious events and meeting extraordinary people. Collected here from various sources (including the Guardian and GQ) are the best of his adventures. Frequently hilarious, sometimes disturbing, always entertaining, these fascinating stories of the chaos that lies on the fringe of our daily lives will have you wondering just what we're capable of.

'Funny and thought-provoking' Financial Times 'Compelling and eye-opening ... hugely compulsive reading' Psychologies 'Comic and entertaining, but with a serious effect as we catch glimpses of the odd things ticking away inside some real characters' Scotsman
