lack of new material,
This review is from: Lost at Sea: The Jon Ronson Mysteries (Hardcover)
I just want to say that i've become a big fan of mr ronsons writing since being away alot last year and coming across his books first on the kindle store and then finding both his collections in a second hand book shop. So when i found out he had brought out this book just as i was due to travel again i was overchuffed. Unfortunatly nowhere on the book, website or publisher's desciption does it say that this is mostly second hand material from his collections or from articles written from the guardian. If your new to jon ronson then yes, this book will be interesting and funny. But as a warning to anyone thats read more than his 3 previous books, then you'll be miserably skipping the majority of this. X

Look at the copyright page - it clearly states that portions of the book have appeared in the Guardian newspaper, GQ magazine, and his 2 books "Out of the Ordinary" and "What I Do".

your right and i noticed that while reading the book. It's not massively clear though and i guess that is a big disadvantage of buying online. But when i saw this book being released i thought it was going to be all new material and that's why i gave it a harsh review.
