Just finished this one up. It's about the advent of free porn and the branching effects it has had on people, the industry, etc. Thought provoking and funny as you would expect from Jon Ronson.

Also got through this one over the weekend. It's considerably more positive than the title suggests. Sort of "self help"-y but not overbearing; I'll probably give it another listen next time I have to drive anywhere.

I would recommend both of these.

After watching Active Shooter, a very good, non-sensationalised docuseries which featured Cullen in the final ep/sode.

The book or the telly?

Book, no, it's a 9 year investigation in to what really happened.

It is quite long. To clarify, it busts the myth (amongst others) that the killers were loners with no chums, in the trench coat mafia etc. All false. Not a conspiracy that Hillary Clinton did it or the earth is flat or whatevs.

Columbine is a fantastic book. I wish he'd write something else.

Just finishing Red Famine, which I'd also heartily recommend - particularly to all the folks who have lately persuaded themselves that Commies aren't so bad after all.

If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.
