Ronson Rising

Called an “Investigative Satirist,” by Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, Jon Ronson talked about his new book, Lost at Sea (Penguin/Riverhead) on Wednesday night’s show. Stewart uttered the magic words, “You’ve gotta go get Lost at Sea.” It rose to #9 on Amazon’s sales rankings.

Ronson was on the show in 2011 for his earlier book, The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry, which went on to become a NYT best seller, reaching a high of #10. He also wrote The Men Who Stare at Goats (S&S, 2004), which was the basis for the 2010 movie starring George Clooney.
