Summary
For the past three years, Jon Ronson has traveled the world meeting recipients of famous public shamings, often while their shamings are in full force. These are people like us--people who, say, made a joke on social media that came out badly, or made a mistake at work. Once a transgression is revealed, collective outrage circles with the force of a hurricane, and the next thing they know, they're being torn apart, jeered at, demonized, sometimes even fired from their jobs. A great renaissance of public shaming is sweeping our land. It's because justice has been democratized. The silent are getting a voice. But what are we doing with our voice? We are being merciless. Ronson's journey results in an entertaining and eye-opening book about public shaming, and about shame as a form of social control. This is a powerful, funny, unique, and very human dispatch from the front lines in the escalating war on human nature and its flaws.--From publisher description

Summary
We've all seen it happen -- someone makes a bad decision in the public eye and people pile on in judgment. His interest piqued by a takeover of his own Twitter account, journalist Jon Ronson dove deep into an exploration of human nature, technology, and humiliation via social media. Interviewing both those famous for being shamed and those doing the shaming, Ronson discusses motivations, consequences, and recoveries. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
