"Because of Ronson's relentless self-deprecation and goofy, British humor, it's easy to tag along without fully realizing the rigor of his reporting, which is itself frenzied with compulsive questioning and obsessive research." -- The Boston Globe
"A rollicking, page-turner of a book... no ordinary piece of investigative journalism... Ronson's storytelling skills are strong enough to enliven even the necessary reflections that would be one yawn after another if entrusted to a lesser writer." -- San Francisco Chronicle "...A book that manages to be as cheerily kooky as it is well-researched." -- Los Angeles Times "Engagingly irreverent..." -- New York Times "[A] fascinating and humane book..." -- Washington Post Book World "...Both terrifying and hilarious." -- O, The Oprah Magazine
