He is such an exceptional writer . . . A perfect sense of comic timing throughout, but he manages to deal with profound subjects . . . Such a great book. We're buying it!
A magnificent book, subtly argued, often painfully funny and yet deeply serious . . . I'm not sure I can recommend it highly enough.
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.
Certainly, no reader could finish it without feeling a need to be gentler online, to defer judgment, not to press the retweet button, to resist that primal impulse to stoke the fires of shame.
