A funny, engaging, and at times penetrating trek through the tricky landscape of contemporary masculinity ... [Perry is] a cultural luminary -- Jason Heller * NPR *
Pithy and insightful ... The Descent of Man fits into the tradition of the 18th-century treatise, a plea for a new, enlightened social order in the manner of Mary Wollstonecraft or William Hazlitt -- Sophie Gilbert, * The Atlantic *
A joy to read -- William Leith * Financial Times *
[Perry] is thoroughly engaging and charismatic ... His personality shines through -- Clive Davis * The Times *
GRAYSON PERRY FOR KING AND QUEEN OF ENGLAND. Imagine how BRILLIANT our country would look if he was. -- Caitlin Moran

A fabulous book -- Victoria Hislop
With its non-macho slender girth and personal, engaging approach, [The Descent of Man] is a breeze of a read, and one that makes you see our male-manufactured world a little differently ... Grayson Perry has written the very book I wanted to write -- Matt Haig * Guardian *
