For the book Ronson immersed himself in the world of modern-day public shaming – meeting famous shamees, shamers, and bystanders who have been impacted. Whole careers are being ruined by one mistake. A transgression is revealed and our collective outrage at it has the force of a hurricane. Then we all quickly forget about it and move on to the next one, and it doesn't cross our minds to wonder if the shamed person is okay or in ruins. What's it doing to them?
