The School of Life Sunday Sermon: Jon RonsonJon Ronson, the journalist and author of The Psychopath Test, will be delivering a secular sermon on Sunday 19 May 2013 at Conway Hall as part of the thought provoking School of Life Sunday Sermon series. His book, The Men Who Stare at Goats, "an inspired study of America's war on terror," (The Guardian) was made into a major motion picture in 2009 and his most recent novel, Lost at Sea: The Jon Ronson Mysteries, was published in October 2012. On reading 'The Psychopath Test' Will Self said of Ronson, "he does indeed force us to think more deeply about the subject at hand".
