Reviews

"How Shakespeare Changed Everything will provide the details and keep you amused while it does. A teacher who makes the class read the book won't get much backlash from the sourpuss who calls Shakespeare dull and out-of-date." -- Associated Press "How Shakespeare Changed Everything is a joyful little book that is a love note to the greatest writer in the English language: never syrupy or over the top, it's a pleasure to read." -- Bookreporter.com "This is a wonderful book about seeing the world through Shakespeare-tinted glasses. You'll never look at the food court, Justin Beiber-or, for that matter, the English language-the same way again." -- A. J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically "How Shakespeare Changed Everything is fun and informative, with more than its share of 'Aha!' moments packed between its diminutive covers. Mr. Marche's thesis is compelling and probably more true than we ever imagined." -- New York Journal of Books "A sprightly, erudite sampling of Shakespeare's influence on absolutely everything." -- National Post "An ambitious and entertaining new book...[How Shakespeare Changed Everything] explores the many, often unsuspected ways in which the great playwright shaped just about every facet of contemporary culture." -- Maria Popova, BrainPickings.com "In his highly readable, never ponderous, sometimes funny, often insightful new book, [Stephen Marche] credits the Bard with everything from shaping American history (the rise of Obama, the fall of Lincoln) to the very enjoyable sex you had last night." -- Wicked Local "Informed, ebullient and profoundly respectful." -- Kirkus Reviews "[How Shakespeare Changed Everything] is informative and entertaining." -- Publishers Weekly "[A] charming tribute...This highly accessible paean to someone whom Marche describes as "the world's most powerful writer" serves as yet another reminder of the impact Shakespeare has had on culture worldwide." -- Quill & Quire "We are lucky that Stephen Marche had his mind blown by Shakespeare; we are luckier still that in making the argument for Shakespeare's inextinguishable relevance, he has given us a contact high." -- Tom Junod "There's not a drop of boredom in this little book." -- Huntington News
