A concise inside look at real life superheroes in America, from the bestselling author of The Psychopath Test.

Bestselling author Jon Ronson walks the mean streets of America, where he finds real-life modern-day superheroes fighting crime, saving old ladies and runaways, and chasing away drug dealers—all while wearing a mask and a cape. 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 a short, inside, intimate look at the world of amateur superheroes and a front-row seat to their adventures.
