Évaluations de journalistes

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.

Ce que les critiques disent

"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.<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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.

Gripping Listen with Engaging Voice

This book was an interesting listen that allowed to me to gain insight into a side of the internet I rarely thought much about. Through its study of many different stories and analyse of the cause and effects of each, I have a deeper understanding of how shaming is prevalent in a world where we take things like the internet for granted. Overall an enthralling read

Maybe get the print version.

Sorry, could not finish the audio book due to the author's voice being really difficult to listen to. Will give the printed version a try.

An important Topic to address

Any additional comments?

This was one of the controversial books that I read/listened recently. For starter, the topic is really important where public shaming, online trolling and cyberbullying became very ingrained in today's internet culture.<br/><br/>Through different stories of online shamed people, Jon Ronson brought back to the surface shame, despair, remorse and crushed lives of those who have been publicly shamed over twitter tweets and how their lives went through a twist (to the worse/indifference).<br/><br/>Now, what was the message delivered through this book? was it raising awareness towards this phenomenon and how it affects people's lives? Was it shaming these people again by digging the dirt and bringing these stories back to the first pages of Google search? was it yet a paid job to disgrace the disgraced? was it an alarm ringing in your head to be careful (self-censor) your activities online or have some moralities when you respond to un-sense/stupid/petty tweets that are only calling for attention/drama? you see, it's your call to pick and choose any of the above messages, however, it is a phenomenon worth studying and commenting on.<br/><br/>Whether it is on twitter or any social media platform, trolling and cyberbullying are dangerous activities that must be condemned and fought. Yes, the internet is a free space, we do fight for freedom of expression, free and open internet and even for net-neutrality, however, when people's fates and lives are at stake, you should think twice before you hit the reply button. I have noticed this a lot here at Goodreads when reviewers review books. I have stopped reading many of my friends' reviews to books they disliked as those were a pure attack on writers without any respect or sense of responsibility. Crushing anyone's dreams are made easy and possible more than ever!<br/><br/>There is a big difference between criticism and critique, criticism is intended to express disapproval of someone's mistakes where critique is an assessment of something and that's what we are looking for. Everyone makes mistakes but we are turning into creatures incapable of forgiving or letting go. Racism and expressing arrogance and superiority based on race/gender/religion/beliefs are not acceptable. However, behaviors and actions are what should be shamed not people. Yes trolling and bullying is never a shining rainbow, however, you should not let go your morals and ethics as a response or reaction to some tweet.<br/><br/>The book has a bit of excessed profanity and cursing. Yes, Jon Ronson wanted to share stories and conversations as is, however, listening to this continuous cursing and profanity distracted me a lot and I ended up skipping some stories that have no impact on the morale of these stories. <br/><br/>Also, Ronson played on the borders between empathy and sympathy, morality and the right to respond, jumping between the extreme right and left that left me with unease during/after reading this book. Repeating certain stories and trying to deliver some messages was something I didn't like (being influenced by some of his own views regarding certain people), however, it was an effort that worth noting and reflecting on.<br/><br/>"The first step in the evolution of ethics is a sense of solidarity with other human beings" says Albert Schweitzer. One day, if we didn't fight this, you will be the subject of public shaming and be portrayed as a MEME on the internet!

Fascinating inner view into fake dramas

The book shines most when offering glimpses into the inner workings and dynamics of today's manufactured dramas, as seen on social networks. Ronson comments while seemingly mindful of wanting to not overreach as much of pop psychology tends to do.

Notable is also the the chapter on "crowd psychology" in which the Stanford prison experiment is taken under the microscope, offering an alternative view of the dynamics of the experiment.
