Award-winning writer and documentary maker Jon Ronson is fascinated by madness, strange behaviour and the mysteries of the human mind. Here he collects together some of the best of his adventures. They include going on patrol with America’s real-life superheroes, going to a UFO convention in the Nevada Desert with Robbie Williams, and asking a robot whether it had a soul. His travels have taken him to meet a man preparing to welcome aliens to Earth and a man who tried to split the atom in his kitchen.
Ronson is author of three bestsellers, Them: Adventures with Extremists; The Men who Stare at Goats (made into a Hollywood movie starring George Clooney and Ewan McGregor) and The Psychopath Test.
