The Amazing Adventures of Phoenix Jones

And the Less Amazing Adventures of Some Other Real-Life Superheroes (An eSpecial from Riverhead Books)

Jon Ronson

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.

Customer Reviews

It's good - but short.

Hilarious and intresting read....just wish it was longer.

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.

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.
