The award winning documentary maker Jon Ronson is fascinated by madness, extraordinary behaviour and the human mind. He has spent his life investigating crazy events, following fascinating people and unearthing unusual stories. He is after all the author of the famous 'The Men Who Stare at Goats.' Collected here from various sources including the Guardian and GQ America are the best of his adventures. Jon meets the man preparing to welcome the aliens to Earth, the woman trying to build a fully conscious robotic replica of the love of her life, and the Deal or No Deal contestants with a fool proof system to beat the Banker. Jon realises that it's possible for our madness to be a force for good when he meets America's real-life superheroes, or a force for evil when he meets the Reverend 'Death' George Exoo who has dubiously assisted in more than 100 mercy killings. He goes to a UFO convention in the Nevada Desert with Robbie Williams, asks Insane Clown Posse (who are possibly America's nastiest rappers) whether it's true they have actually been evangelical Christians all along, and rummages through the extensive archives of Stanley Kubrick. Frequently hilarious, sometimes disturbing, always entertaining, these compelling encounters with people on the edge of madness will have you wondering just what humans are capable of. 448pp, paperback.
