Award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker Jon Ronson is fascinated by the irrational. He has exposed the outright lunacy of some of the world’s most powerful people in his two best-sellers Adventures with Extremists and The Men who Stare at Goats (soon to be an all star cast Hollywood movie). His hilarious new book What I do: More True Tales of Everyday Craziness is a collection of surreal and perturbing stories which reveal both his personal paranoia and the insanity at play in the wider world.
