THIS IS AMAZING.
Educational and hilarious at the the same time.

This is part of the book...

" In the late 90s in Japan, the assumption that people would be lucky to have their private lives publicized was taken one ste further when a weekly “reality” show called Denpa Shonen featured a naked man locked in a room where he had to subsist ob only what he could win from sweepstakes advertised in a pile of magazines he was given. His place in the room was the prize he received after winning a raffle; he wasn’t told he’d be filmed. He went long stretches of time crying and eating nothing but rice cooked in a tin can. The crew left him inthere for more than a year before they told him that his confinement was being broadcast all over the country.

The show received stellar ratings."
