So You've Been Publicly Shamed

Jon Ronson

This captivating exploration delves into one of our world's most underappreciated forces: shame. The author, Jon Ronson, has traveled the world meeting people who have been publicly shamed, often because of a small mistake or joke gone wrong on social media. Ronson examines the terrifying power of collective outrage and the escalating war on human flaws, and raises important questions about justice, democracy, and social control. A powerful and honest book that exposes the very scary part we all play in this cultural phenomenon.
