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)

Relevant and bold

"the snowflake doesn't have to feel responsible for the avalanche"

Its difficult to see the good in humanity when thousands of people are willing to tear apart a persons life over a dumb comment on twitter.

Ronson's book did a great job investigating how power and perceived moral supieority can corrupt.

In the internet age everyone should read this

I love Jon Ronson's work and this book satisfies as much as his other excellent work. I think a portion of the problem with online shaming is that there isn't long term affects for the people who so readily type and send their knee jerk reaction. If people were more mindful of their actions and lingered on thoughts for more than 30 seconds then it could be less likely they would default to shaming. If more people read this book it might help to create that mindfulness.

This is a Must Listen

I bought this book as a Daily Deal and waited to listen. My fist thought was this subject matter is removed from anything in my world but might be interesting. This book has scared me. Yes I knew about Internet trolls and assumed they are the sickness of society. This book educated me on how easy it is to judge and when you judge online you have the power to destroy. I remember being outraged reading about Cecile the Lion. Made me sick. Justine Sacci made a very thoughtless comment online and was gutted. I remember seeing this on the news. What if my niece or another family member is feeling a bit flip one day and makes an innocent gaffe. I've found a new thing to worry about. My biggest fear before was hurting someone while driving. I'd be fully prepared to flay myself for that but social shaming is different. In your heart you know you are innocent of hateful thought or deed but someone can misconstrue your motive and the punishment could be more severe then if you actually did run someone down. This is quite terrifying and hopefully we will all realize how vulnerable we all are to making mistakes.

Seriously interesting

I read this book after experiencing a small bit of online shaming that was incorrectly assigned to me instead of the actual person (I was confused for them). Even just a small one was a harrowing experience. I've also been on the other end where I've publicly shamed people I felt deserved it. This book was a punch in the gut! It is so real, the stories so weird, interesting, raw, and in some cases funny or sad. It's so easy to see how a normal person can fall into this trap from both ends. Loved having the author narrate it. So dang interesting.

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.

I was hugely disappointed

I was expecting something that examined each shaming. As another reviewer said there was nothing you could not read on the internet. I felt that Ronson was tiring to tell me what to think rather than letting the reader form their own opinion.

Great book on shaming in social media.

it's a great book on the world of social media. We use it every day for various reasons and we never think twice about the stories we read, the people that was impacted by the things we share. The horror that it may happen to us.

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
