This is another Ronson collection published (either some or all) in other places previously. Ronson's a bigger deal in the UK than he is in the US, but I've been reading him since _Them_ and consistently enjoyed his work. This particular collection may, oddly, be one of his strongest, even tho the theme is not necessarily as strong or as consistent as, say, _The Psychopath Test_ or _The Men Who Stare at Goats_.
The titular essay is the last one, about people who disappear on cruise ships, one in particular on a Disney cruise ship. There's all kinds of goodies along the way, including Jesus Christians and their efforts to altruistically donate kidneys to strangers in defiance of then-British law, British pedophiles, income inequality and home chemistry enthusiasts who run afoul of the law despite not necessarily actually breaking any laws.
It's really good. It's hard to summarize, but Ronson is very compassionate and humane, without being a mark. Which is admirable and difficult to accomplish, but something I aspire to. It is occasionally profoundly disturbing.
