⌠ Free Format Kindle Read 療 So You've Been Publicly Shamed  ນ Kindle By Jon Ronson ᠀ ⌠ Free Format Kindle Read 療 So You've Been Publicly Shamed ນ Kindle By Jon Ronson ᠀ OneThis story begins in early January 2012, when I noticed that another Jon Ronson had started posting on Twitter His photograph was a photograph of my face His Twitter name was Jon_Ronson His most recent tweet, which appeared as I stared in surprise at his timeline, read Going home Gotta get the recipe for a huge plate of guarana and mussel in a bap with mayonnaise D yummy.Who are you I tweeted him.Watching Seinfeld I would love a big plate of celeriac, grouper and sour cream kebab with lemongrass foodie, he tweeted.I didnt know what to do.The next morning I checked Jon_Ronsons timeline before I checked my own In the night he had tweeted, Im dreaming something about time and cock.He had twenty followers Some were people I knew from real life, who were probably wondering why Id suddenly become so passionate about fusion cooking and candid about dreaming about cock.I did some digging I discovered that a young researcher, formerly of Warwick University, called Luke Robert Mason had a few weeks earlier posted a comment on the Guardian site It was in response to a short video I had made about spambots Weve built Jon his very own infomorph, he wrote You can follow him on Twitter here Jon_Ronson. Oh, so its some kind of spambot, I thought Okay This will be fine Luke Robert Mason must have thought I would like the spambot When he finds out that I dont, hell remove it.So I tweeted him Hi Will you take down your spambot please Ten minutes passed Then he replied, We prefer the term infomorph.I frowned But its taken my identity, I wrote.The infomorph isnt taking your identity, he wrote back It is repurposing social media data into an infomorphic esthetic.I felt a tightness in my chest. woohoo damn, Im in the mood for a tidy plate of onion grill with crusty bread foodie, Jon_Ronson tweeted.I was at war with a robot version of myself.A month passed Jon_Ronson was tweeting twenty times a day about its whirlwind of social engagements, its soirees, and its wide circle of friends It now had fifty followers They were getting a disastrously misrepresentative depiction of my views on soirees and friends The spambot left me feeling powerless and sullied My identity had been redefined all wrong by strangers and I had no recourse.I tweeted Luke Robert Mason If he was adamant that he wouldnt take down his spambot, perhaps we could at least meet I could film the encounter and put it on YouTube He agreed, writing that hed be glad to explain the philosophy behind the infomorph I replied that Id certainly be interested to learn the philosophy behind the spambot.I rented a room in central London I sat there, nervously waiting On the dot of our prearranged meeting, Luke arrived with two other menthe team behind the spambot All three were academics They had met at Warwick University Luke was the youngest of the three, handsome, in his twenties, a researcher in technology and cyberculture and director of the Virtual Futures Conference, according to his online CV David Bausola looked like a rakish teacher, the sort of person who might speak at a conference on the literature of Aleister Crowley He was a creative technologist and the CEO of the digital agency Philter Phactory Dan OHara had a shaved head, and eyes that were piercing and annoyed looking His jaw was clenched He was in his late thirties, a lecturer in English and American literature at the University of Cologne Before that, hed been a lecturer at Oxford Hed coedited a book about J G Ballard, Extreme Metaphors, and another book, Thomas Pynchon Schizophrenia Social Control As far as I understood it, David Bausola had done the actual building of the spambot, while the two other men provided research and consultancy.I suggested that they sit in a row on the sofa so I could film them all in a single shot Dan OHara gave the others a glance.Lets play along, he said to them They all sat, with Dan in the middle.What do you mean by play along I asked him.Its about psychological control, he said.Do you think my having you in a row on the sofa is my way of psychologically controlling you I asked.Absolutely, said Dan.In what way I asked.I do that with students, said Dan I put myself in a separate chair and put the students in a row on the sofa.Why would you want to psychologically control some students I asked.Dan looked briefly worried that hed been caught saying something eerie In order to control the learning environment, he said.Is this making you feel uncomfortable I asked him.No, not really, said Dan Are you uncomfortable Yes, I said.Why Dan asked.I spelled out my grievances Academics, I began, dont swoop into a persons life uninvited and use him for some kind of academic exercise, and when I ask you to take it down, youre, Oh, its not a spambot, its an infomorph.Dan nodded He leaned forward There must be lots of Jon Ronsons out there he began People with your name Yes I looked suspiciously at him Im sure there are people with my name, I replied, carefully.Ive got the same problem, said Dan, with a smile He gave me an empathetic look Theres another academic out there with my name.You dont have exactly the same problem as I do, I said, because my exact problem is that three strangers have stolen my identity and have created a robot version of me and are refusing to take it down even though they come from respectable universities and give TEDx talks.Dan let out a long suffering sigh Youre saying, There is only one Jon Ronson, he said Youre proposing yourself as the real McCoy, as it were, and you want to maintain that integrity and authenticity Yes I stared at him.I think we feel annoyed with you, Dan continued, because were not quite persuaded by that We think theres already a layer of artifice and its your online personalitythe brand Jon Ronsonyoure trying to protect Yeah NO, ITS JUST ME TWEETING, I yelled.The Internet is not the real world, said Dan.I write my tweets, I replied And I press send So its me on Twitter.We glared at each other.Thats not academic, I said Thats not postmodern Thats the fact of it.This is bizarre, Dan said I find it really strangethe way youre approaching this You must be one of the very few people who have chosen to come on Twitter and use their own name as their Twitter name Who does that And thats why Im a little suspicious of your motives, Jon Thats why I say I think youre using it as brand management.I said nothing, but to this day it kills me that it didnt cross my mind to point out to him that Luke Robert Masons Twitter name is LukeRobertMason.Our conversation continued like this for an hour I told Dan that I have never used the term brand management in my life Language like that is alien to me, I said And thats the same with your spambot Its language is different to mine.Yes, the three men agreed in unison.And thats whats annoying me so much, I explained Its a misrepresentation of me.Youd like it to be like you Dan said.Id like it to not exist, I said.Thats bizarre, said Dan He let out an incredulous whistle I find something psychologically interesting about that.Why I said.I find that quite aggressive, he said Youd like to kill these algorithms You must feel threatened in some way He gave me a concerned look We dont go around generally trying to kill things we find annoying.Youre a TROLL I yelled.After the interview was over, I staggered out into the London afternoon I dreaded uploading the footage onto YouTube because Id been so screechy I steeled myself for comments mocking my screechiness and I posted it I left it up for ten minutes Then, with apprehension, I had a look.This is identity theft, read the first comment I saw They should respect Jons personal liberty. Wow, I thought, cautiously.Somebody should make alternate Twitter accounts of all of those ass clowns and constantly post about their strong desire for child porn, read the next comment.I grinned.These people are manipulative assholes, read the third Fuck them Sue them, break them, destroy them If I could see these people face to face I would say they are fucking pricks.I was giddy with joy I was Braveheart, striding through a field, at first alone, and then it becomes clear that hundreds are marching behind me.Vile, disturbing idiots playing with someone elses life and then laughing at the victims hurt and anger, read the next comment.I nodded soberly.Utter hateful arseholes, read the next These fucked up academics deserve to die painfully The cunt in the middle is a fucking psychopath.I frowned slightly I hope nobodys going to actually hurt them, I thought.Gas the cunts Especially middle cunt And especially left side bald cunt And especially quiet cunt Then piss on their corpses, read the next comment.I won Within days, the academics took down Jon_Ronson They had been shamed into acquiescence Their public shaming had been like the button that restores factory settings Something was out of kilter The community rallied The balance was redressed The academics made a very big meal of eradicating their spambot They wrote a Guardian column explaining that their wider aim was to highlight the tyranny of Wall Street algorithms Its not just Ronson who has bots manipulating his life Its all of us I still didnt understand why pretending I eat wasabi dumplings might draw the publics attention to the scourge of Wall Street algorithms.I have been asked to retire youdo you understand what that means, tweeted David Bausola to the spambot And, You have a few hours left I hope you enjoy them.Just press the off switch, I e mailed him I tapped my fingers on my desk, impatiently Jesus.I was happy to be victorious It felt wonderful The wonderful feeling overwhelmed me like a sedative Strangers all over the world had united to tell me I was right It was the perfect ending.Now I thought back on the other recent social media shamings Id enjoyed and felt proud of The first great one happened in October 2009 The Boyzone singer Stephen Gately had been found dead while on holiday with his civil partner, Andrew Cowles The coroner recorded a verdict of natural causes, but the columnist Jan Moir wrote in the Daily Mail, Whatever the cause of death is, it is not, by any yardstick, a natural one it strikes another blow to the happy ever after myth of civil partnerships.On Twitter we knew what it meant to be the underdog And here was a member of Britains elite trying to reshame the gay community and choosing the most callous circumstance to do it We were not going to tolerate a resurgence of old time bigotry, and as a result of our collective fury, Marks Spencer and Nestl demanded their advertising be removed from the Daily Mails website These were great times We hurt the Mail with a weapon they didnt understanda social media shaming.After that, when the powerful transgressed, we were there When the Daily Mail mocked a food bank charity for giving a food parcel to their undercover reporter without running an ID check on him, Twitter responded by donating 39,000 to the charity by the end of that same day.This is the nice thing about social media, one tweeter wrote about that campaign The Mail, which relies primarily on lying to people about their neighbors, cant cope with people communicating among themselves, forming their own opinions.When LA Fitness refused to cancel the gym membership of a couple who had lost their jobs and couldnt afford the fees, we rallied LA Fitness hurriedly backed down These giants were being brought down by people who used to be powerlessbloggers, anyone with a social media account And the weapon that was felling them was a new one online shaming.And then one day it hit me Something of real consequence was happening We were at the start of a great renaissance of public shaming After a lull of almost 180 years public punishments were phased out in 1837 in the United Kingdom and in 1839 in the United States , it was back in a big way When we deployed shame, we were utilizing an immensely powerful tool It was coercive, borderless, and increasing in speed and influence Hierarchies were being leveled out The silenced were getting a voice It was like the democratization of justice And so I made a decision The next time a great modern shaming unfolded against some significant wrongdoerthe next time citizen justice prevailed in a dramatic and righteous wayI would leap into the middle of it Id investigate it close up and chronicle how efficient it was in righting wrongs.I didnt have to wait long Jon_Ronson was put to death on April 2, 2012 Just twelve weeks later, in the middle of the night on July 4, a man lying on his sofa in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, was looking for ideas for his blog when he made a very unexpected discovery.TwoIn the middle of the night on July 4, 2012, Michael C Moynihan lay on his sofa His wife, Joanne, was asleep upstairs with their young daughter They were broke, as they always were Everybody seemed to make money in journalism than Michael did I can never turn it into money, hed later tell me I dont know how to do it.These were anxious times He was thirty seven and scraping by as a blogger and a freelancer in a walk up in a not great part of Fort Greene, Brooklyn.But hed just had a job offer The Washington Post had invited him to blog for ten days Not that the timing was so great It was July Fourth Everyone was on vacation There were no readers and there wasnt a lot of news But still, it was a break And it was stressing Michael out The stress had just spoiled a vacation in Ireland visiting his wifes family, and now it was stressing him out on his sofa.He began hunting around for story ideas On a whim he downloaded the latest number one New York Times nonfiction bestseller from the young, handsome, and internationally renowned pop psychology author Jonah Lehrer It was a book about the neurology of creativity and was called Imagine How Creativity Works.The first chapter, Bob Dylans Brain, piqued Michaels interest, as he was a keen Dylanologist Jonah Lehrer was reconstructing a critical moment in Dylans creative careerthe thought process that led him to write Like a Rolling Stone.It was May 1965 and Dylan was bored, weary from a grueling tour, skinny from insomnia and pills, sick of his music, thinking he had nothing left to say As Jonah Lehrer writes The only thing he was sure of was that this life couldnt last Whenever Dylan read about himself in the newspaper he made the same observation God, Im glad Im not me, he said Im glad Im not that.So Dylan told his manager he was quitting the music business He moved to a tiny cabin in Woodstock, New York His plan was to perhaps write a novel.But then, just when Dylan was most determined to stop creating music, he was overcome with a strange feeling.Its a hard thing to describe, Dylan would later remember Its just this sense that you got something to say.It was no wonder Imagine had become such a bestseller Who wouldnt want to read that if theyre creatively blocked and feeling hopeless theyre just like Bob Dylan immediately before he wrote Like a Rolling Stone Michael Moynihan, I should explain, hadnt downloaded Jonah Lehrers book because he was blocked and needed inspirational advice about how to write a Washington Post blog Jonah Lehrer had recently been embroiled in a minor scandal and Michael was considering blogging about it Some columns he had written for The New Yorker had, it turned out, been recycled from columns hed published months earlier in The Wall Street Journal Michael was considering blogging on how self plagiarism was considered less of a crime in Britain than in America and what that said about the two cultures.But now Michael suddenly stopped reading He went back a sentence.Its a hard thing to describe, Dylan would later remember Its just this sense that you got something to say.Michael narrowed his eyes When the fuck did Bob Dylan say that he thought.What made you suspicious I asked Michael The two of us were eating lunch at the Cookshop restaurant in Manhattans Chelsea district Michael was handsome and fidgety His eyes were pale and darting like a huskys.It just didnt sound like Dylan, he said In that period, in every interview Dylan did, he was a total asshole to the interviewer This sounded like a Dylan self help book.And so, on his sofa, Michael scanned back a few paragraphs.Whenever Dylan read about himself in the newspaper, he made the same observation God, Im glad Im not me, he said Im glad Im not that.In D A Pennebakers documentary Dont Look Back the missing apostrophe was the directors idea , Dylan reads an article about himself Puffing heavily on a cigarette, he smokes 80 a day Dylan laughs, God, Im glad Im not me. How did Jonah Lehrer know that Dylan said this whenever he read about himself in the paper Michael thought Where did whenever come from Plus, God, Im glad Im not me is verifiable, but Im glad Im not that When did he say, Im glad Im not that Where did Jonah Lehrer get Im glad Im not that And so Michael Moynihan e mailed Jonah Lehrer.I picked up your book and as an obsessive Dylan nerd eagerly read the first chapter Im pretty familiar with the Dylan canon and there were a few quotes I was slightly confused by and couldnt locate.This was Michaels first e mail to Jonah Lehrer He was reading it to me back home in his Fort Greene living room Joanne sat with us There were toys scattered around.By the time Michael e mailed Jonah on July 7, hed pinpointed six suspicious Dylan quotes, including Its just this sense that you got something to say, Im glad Im not that, and this angry retort to prying journalists Ive got nothing to say about these things I write I just write them Theres no great message Stop asking me to explain.Dylan did once verifiably say in Dont Look Back, Ive got nothing to say about these things I write I just write them Theres no great message.But there was no Stop asking me to explain.Michael mentioned to Jonah his deadlinehe was blogging for The Washington Post for ten daysand then he pressed send.Jonah e mailed Michael back twice the next day His e mails sounded friendly, professional, businesslike, maybe a little superior His air was that of a smart young academic understanding Michaels questions and promising to answer them during an appropriate moment in his schedule Which would be in eleven days He was on vacation in Northern California for ten days His files were at his home, a seven hour drive away He didnt want to disrupt his vacation by driving fourteen hours to check his files If Michael could wait ten days, Jonah would send him detailed notes.Michael smiled when he read out that part of Jonahs e mail to me Eleven days was quite the convenient vacation length given the duration of Michaels Washington Post contract.Still, Jonah said hed try to answer Michaels questions off the top of his head.And this, Michael said, was where it all began to unravel for him This is where he makes his first underplayed lie Hes hesitating Do I make this lie Jonah made the lie.I got a little bit of help, he wrote, from one of Dylans managers.This manager had given Jonah access to previously unreleased original transcripts of Dylan interviews If there were any discrepancies with common references on the Web, that was why.Jonahs e mails continued in this vein for several paragraphs Dylan had told a radio interviewer to stop asking me to explain in 1995 The interview was transcribed within the pages of a rare multivolume anthology called The Fiddler Now Upspoke A Collection of Bob Dylans Interviews, Press Conferences and the Like from Throughout the Masters Career And so on Then Jonah thanked Michael for his interest, signed off, and at the bottom of the e mails were the words Sent from my iPhone.Sent from his iPhone, Michael said A rather lengthy e mail to send from an iPhone Slightly panicky Sweaty thumbs, you know Who knew if Jonah Lehrer really was on vacation But Michael had to take him at his word So they had a lull The lull made publication in the Washington Post blog impossible, given the digging Michael would need to do The Fiddler Now Upspoke was a nightmare source Eleven volumes, twelve volumes, fifteen volumes Individual ones cost a hundred fifty, two hundred dollars.Jonah Lehrer presumably thought Michael hadnt the wherewithal to trace, purchase, and scrutinize an anthology as epic and obscure as The Fiddler Now Upspoke But he underestimated the nature of Michaels tenacity There was something about Michael that reminded me of the cyborg in Terminator 2, the one that was even dogged than Arnold Schwarzenegger, running faster than the fastest car As Joanne told me, Michael is the guarder of social rules She turned to him Youre a nice guy as long as everyone elseWhen I go out in the world, Michael said, if someone throws some garbage on the street, its the most senseless thing to me I lose my mind Why are you doing this And its for hours, Joanne said Were out on a nice walk and its a half an hour rantI see things collapsing, Michael said.And so Michael tracked down an electronic version of The Fiddler Now Upspoke Well, it wasnt an actual electronic version, but a complete archive of all known Dylan interviews called Every Mind Polluting Word, Michael told me, basically a digital version of Fiddler that a fan put together and dumped online It turned out that Bob Dylan had given only one radio interview in 1995 and at no time during it had he told the interviewer to stop asking me to explain.On July 11, Michael was in the park with his wife and daughter It was hot His daughter was running in and out of the fountain Michaels phone rang The voice said, This is Jonah Lehrer.I know Jonah Lehrers voice now If you had to describe it in a word, that word would be measured.We had a really nice talk, Michael said, about Dylan, about journalism I told him I wasnt trying to make a name for myself with this I said Id been grinding away at this for years and Im justyou knowI do what I do and I feed my family and everythings okay.The way Michael said the word okay made it sound like he meant barely okay It was the vocal equivalent of a worried head glancing down at the floor.I told him Im not one of those young Gawker guys going, Find me a target I can burn in the public square and then people will know who I am And Jonah said, I really appreciate that.Michael liked Jonah I got along with him It was really nice It was a really nice conversation They said their good byes A few minutes later, Jonah e mailed Michael to thank him once again for being so decent and not like one of those Gawker guys who delight in humiliation They didnt make them like Michael any.After that, Michael went quiet so he could dig around on Jonah some .These were the good days Michael felt like Hercule Poirot Jonahs claim that hed had a little bit of help from one of Dylans managers had sounded suspiciously vague, Michael had thought And, indeed, it turned out that Bob Dylan had only one manager His name was Jeff Rosen And although Jeff Rosens e mail address was hard to come by, Michael came by it.Michael e mailed him Had Jeff Rosen ever spoken to Jonah Lehrer Jeff Rosen replied that he never had.So Michael e mailed Jonah to say he had some questions.Jonah replied, sounding surprised Was Michael still going to write something He assumed Michael wasnt going to write anything.Michael shook his head with incredulity when he recounted this part to me Jonah had obviously convinced himself that hed sweet talked Michael out of investigating him But no Bad liars always think theyre good at it, Michael said to me.Theyre always confident theyre defeating you.Ive spoken to Jeff Rosen, Michael told Jonah.And that, Michael said, is when Jonah lost it He just lost it Ive never seen anyone like it.Jonah started repeatedly telephoning Michael, pleading with him not to publish Sometimes Michael would silence his iPhone for a while Then hed return to find so many missed calls from Jonah that he would take a screenshot because nobody would otherwise have believed it I asked Michael at what point it stopped being fun, and he replied, When your quarry starts panicking He paused Its like being out in the woods hunting and youre, This feels great And then you shoot the animal and its lying there twitching and wants its head to be bashed in and youre, I dont want to be the person to do this This is fucking horrible.Michael got a call from Jonahs agent, Andrew Wylie He represents not just Jonah but also Bob Dylan and Salman Rushdie and David Bowie and David Byrne and David Rockefeller and V S Naipaul and Vanity Fair and Martin Amis and Bill Gates and King Abdullah II of Jordan and Al Gore Actually, Andrew Wylie didnt phone Michael He got in touch with somebody who got in touch with me to tell me to call him, Michael told me Which I thought was very Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Hes thought to be the most powerful literary agent in the United States and Im a schlub, Im a nobody So I called him I laid out the case He said, If you publish this, youre going to ruin a guys life Do you think this is a big enough deal to ruin a guys life How did you reply I asked.I said, Ill think about it, Michael said I guess Andrew Wylie is a bazillionaire because hes very perceptive, because I got a call from Jonah, who said, So Andrew Wylie says youre going to go ahead and publish.On the afternoon of Sunday, July 29, Michael was walking down Flatbush Avenue, on the telephone to Jonah, shouting at him, I need you to go on the record You have to do it, Jonah You have to go on the record My arms were going crazy I was so angry and so frustrated All the time he was wasting All his lies And he was simpering Finally something in Jonahs voice made Michael know that it was going to happen So I ran into Duane Reade, and I bought a fucking Hello Kitty notebook and a pen, and in twenty five seconds, he said, I panicked And Im deeply sorry for lying.And there you go, said Michael Its done.Twenty six days, and it took Michael forty minutes to write the story Hed still not worked out how to make money from journalism Hed agreed to give the scoop to a small Jewish online magazine, Tablet Knowing how lucky they were, the people at Tablet paid Michael quadruple what they usually pay, but it was quadruple of not much 2,200 totalwhich is all hed ever make from the story.Forty minutes to write it, and what felt to him like nine packs of cigarettes.If anything, Jonah Lehrer nearly killed me I smoked so many fucking cigarettes out on the fire escape Smoking, smoking, smoking When you have the ability to press send on something and really, really affect the outcome of the rest of that persons life And the phone was ringing and ringing and ringing and ringing There were twenty odd missed calls from Jonah that Sunday night Twenty four missed calls, twenty five missed calls.He kept phoning, Joanne said It was so sad I dont understand why he thought it was a good idea to keep phoning.It was the worst night of his life, I said.Yeah, yeah, for sure, for sure, Michael said.Finally, Michael picked up the phone I said, Jonah, you have to stop calling me This is almost to the point of harassment I felt like I was talking him off the ledge I said, Tell me youre not going to do anything stupid It was that level of panic So much so that I thought maybe I should pull back from this He was, Please, please, please, like a childs toy breaking, droning, running out of batteries, Please please, pleaseMichael asked me if Id ever been in that position Had I ever stumbled on a piece of information that, if published, would destroy someone Actually destroy them.I thought for a while Destroy someone I said I paused No I dont think so Im not sure.Dont ever do it, he said.Michael said he honestly considered not pressing send that night Jonah had a young daughter the same age as Michaels young daughter Michael said he couldnt kid himself He understood what pressing send would mean to Jonahs life What we do, when we fuck up, we dont lose our job We lose our vocation.Michael was thinking of former journalists like The New Republics Stephen Glass Glass was the author of a celebrated 1998 story, Hack Heaven, about a fifteen year old schoolboy hacker who was offered a job with a software company hed hacked into Glass wrote about being a fly on the wall in the companys officesJukt Micronicsas the boy negotiated his terms I want money I want a Miata I want a trip to Disney World I want X Men comic number one I want a lifetime subscription to Playboyand throw in Penthouse Show me the money Show me the money Across the table, executives are listening and trying ever so delicately to oblige Excuse me, sir, one of the suits says tentatively to the pimply teenager Excuse me Pardon me for interrupting you, sir We can arrange money for you.STEPHEN GLASS, WASHINGTON SCENE HACK HEAVEN, The New Republic, MAY 18, 1998But there was no conference room, no Jukt Micronics, no schoolboy hacker A Forbes digital journalist, Adam Penenberg, annoyed that The New Republic had scooped him on his own turf, did some digging and discovered that Glass had invented it all Glass was fired He later enrolled in law school, earned a degree magna cum laude, applied in 2014 to practice law in California, and was refused Glasss shaming was following him around wherever he went, like Pigpens cloud of dirt In some ways, he and Jonah Lehrer were eerily alikeyoung, nerdy, Jewish, preternaturally successful journalists on a roll who made things up But Glass had invented entire scenarios, casts of characters, reams of dialogue Jonahs Im glad Im not that at the end of Im glad Im not me was stupid and wrong, but a world that doled out punishments as merciless as that would be unfathomable to me I thought Michael was being overly dramatic to believe that pressing send would sentence Jonah to Stephen Glasslevel oblivion.In the end, it was all academic for Michael He said he felt as trapped in this story as Jonah was It was like they were both in a car with failed brakes, hurtling helplessly toward this ending together How could Michael not press send What would people think if the story got out That hed covered it up for career advancement I would have been the spineless so called journalist who buckled to Andrew Wylie I never would have worked again.Gutsy and smart Without losing any of the clever agility that makes his books so winning, he has taken on truly consequential material and risen to the challenge.fascinatingshockingMr Ronsons gift for detail
