Avis de l'équipe

So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed is the explosive new release from Sunday Times best-selling author of The Psychopath Test and well-known journalist Jon Ronson, who narrates this complete and unabridged audiobook. Ronson gives an enlightening exploration of public shaming on social media. These people are not always a star-studded cast of interviewees but often ordinary people thrown unwittingly into the spotlight. Ronson expertly explores the psychology behind the human fear of shame. This is captivating listening that goes to the very heart of what it means to be shamed. Available now from Audible.

Description

From the Sunday Times top ten best-selling author of The Psychopath Test, a captivating and brilliant exploration of one of our world's most underappreciated forces: shame.

"It's about the terror, isn't it?"

"The terror of what?" I said.

"The terror of being found out."

For the past three years, Jon Ronson has travelled the world, meeting recipients of high-profile public shamings. The shamed are people like us - people who, say, made jokes on social media that came out badly or made mistakes at work. Once their transgressions were revealed, collective outrage circled with the force of a hurricane, and the next thing they knew they were being torn apart by an angry mob, jeered, demonized, sometimes even fired from their jobs.

A great renaissance of public shaming is sweeping our land. Justice has been democratized. The silent majority are getting a voice. But what are we doing with our voice? We are mercilessly finding people's faults. We are defining the boundaries of normality by ruining the lives of those outside it. We are using shame as a form of social control.

Simultaneously powerful and hilarious in the way only Jon Ronson can be, So You've Been Publicly Shamed is a deeply honest book about modern life, full of eye-opening truths about the escalating war on human flaws - and the very scary part we all play in it.

Jon Ronson is an award-winning writer and documentary maker. He is the author of two best sellers, Them: Adventures with Extremists and The Men Who Stare at Goats, and two collections Out of the Ordinary: True Tales of Everyday Craziness and What I Do: More True Tales of Everyday Craziness. He lives in London.

This is an updated edition with new afterword, written and narrated by Jon Ronson.

Commentaires

"A work of original, inspired journalism, it considers the complex dynamics between those who shame and those who are shamed, both of whom can become the focus of social media's grotesque, disproportionate judgments" ( Financial Times)

Required Reading for Navigating Our Current Times

What did you love best about So You've Been Publicly Shamed?

This book was revelatory for me. Having loved Jon Ronson from This American Life and enjoyed his other books, I suspected that I would enjoy it, but I was surprised by how often I found myself worrying about, considering, and then reconsidering the ideas he presents here.

I feel like any fellow millennial who regularly participates in or witnesses acts of online public shaming without a second thought, and who champions the internet as a place that delivers justice where other systems can't, needs to read this book and become more aware of the real costs of that behaviour, and of the overall impact it has. I have recommended this book to many people and think that it makes some really important and compelling points about anonymity and the internet, about why people get so wrapped up in online finger pointing, and about both the power and consequences of that.

It says something when a book can get someone to rethink my own actions and opinions on something, and this one has stayed with me long after I listened.

Fascinating topic, great narration

Would you consider the audio edition of So You've Been Publicly Shamed to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version of this book, but Jon Ronson is such a great narrator I think you lose something by not listening to him voice his work.

Which character – as performed by Jon Ronson – was your favorite?

Jon Ronson as a character in his own books is very funny and engaging. He's definitely my favorite.

Any additional comments?

These days if you're not on Twitter, you probably feel like you should be. This book makes you think twice about how you should and can use the power that social media gives us all.

loved it

Very interesting and great to listen to. I started by using it in the background as I played games but later stopped playing games to focus on what was being said.

Unsocial Media

This should be high on the list of anyone, young or older, using social media such as Twitter or FB to speak to the world or 'privately' to friends. Listen carefully, fashion your own communication ethic, and prepare to be misunderstood and possibly shamed with consequences. Reactions can be fair or unfair, deserved or not. You don't get to choose. User beware.

A close examination of internet lynchings

A unique perspective through interviews and personal experience. Jon Ronson's background as a journalist shines as he delves into the world of internet lynchings, where the crowds are capricious and one is guilty before (and sometimes despite) being proven innocent

A thoughtful look at the internet mob culture

Through case studies, Jon Ronson takes a critical look at how we behave as a group online. It’s uncomfortable to confront the fact that people who made mistakes can have their career destroyed in a matter of hours. He made us question who was in the right, the wrong, both, or neither. I believe it’s a must read for all of us who are living in the internet culture.

Eight hours of bitter enjoyment

Ronson is not only an inspiring journalist but also a great narrator of his own texts. He definitely knows what an audiobook is and tells listeners when a picture is included in the original book.

a little outdated

Ok to read, didn't learn much. Many repetitions of the same cases. The internet has changed much since fake news and Trump. There should be a follow up.
