A funny, superbly controlled account of Ronson's wanderings through the wonderland of fanaticism and delusion . . . The result is high comedy.
Often entertaining, more often disturbing . . . Ronson has gotten closer to these people than any journalist I can think of.
Ronson has a deft, ironic touch and a brilliant way with scene-setting and direct speech.
The strength of Ronson's book is that it reminds us not only that extremists are weird but also that their fantasies take sustenance from the real world.
