The Amazing Adventures of Phoenix Jones Jon Ronson read online review & book description:

Bestselling author Jon Ronson walks the mean streets of America where he finds real life, modern day superheroes. Fighting crime, saving old ladies, and chasing away drug dealers – all while wearing a mask and a cape. Phoenix Jones patrols Seattle, masked, muscles rippling, while corner boys scatter and teenage runaways are helped, whether they want it or not. He might still see his pediatrician when superhero-ing gets a little too intense, but he’ll be back out there with his ass-kicking comrades as soon as he’s bandaged up. These do-gooding citizens talk the talk, and walk the walk of mythical superheroes – the only thing they're missing is actual supernatural powers.
 
The Amazing Adventures of Phoenix Jones is an inside, intimate look at the world of amateur superheroes and a front row seat to their adventures.

  • Great Article, Not Great Price

    About half the pamphlet you get is a really good story that could probably headline an issue of GQ, Maxim or Rolling Stone. The other half is an excerpt from a book you can buy. Not worth the price.
  • Ok, but short

    They shouldn't really call this a book, it's basically a long article like something from the New Yorker. I love Ronson's actual books but I was disappointed in this one. Not a lot of depth.
