Reviews

"O'Brien is an exceptional broadcaster with a peerless ability to calmly point out the absurdity of certain viewpoints, a quality which similarly runs through this book ... provides a much-needed examination of the blustering rhetoric of politicians and media pundits, and brings a sliver of comfort to readers that they are not alone in their despair." -- The Guardian

"James O'Brien has become the conscience of liberal Britain" * New Statesman *
"Almost indecently enjoyable" -- Robert Webb
"I know few broadcasters as consistently, forensically, brilliant as James O' Brien. Here, he shows us -- with empathy, edge and exquisite comedy -- how it happens" -- Emily Maitlis
"In the age of the tweet, such verbal ability increasingly seems like a superpower" * The Times *
"A simply brilliant read ... I love this book!" -- Jamie Oliver
"A total joy. If you feel like the world is going to hell in a handcart, here's the brakes" -- Caitlin Moran
"This book is required reading to slice through the rhetoric, slogans & bluster of politics and politicians. James is the broadcaster we need right now, setting the world to rights one call at a time" -- Susanna Reid
"Funny, clever and alarming ... a modern day travelogue through the airwaves with all the mistrust, misinformation, contradictions and manipulation laid bare" -- Krishnan Guru-Murthy
"Intelligent, funny and worrying. An unsurprisingly brilliant read from a great broadcaster. I vehemently wish that everyone would read it. The World and this country would be a better place if they did." -- Gary Lineker
"Funny, wise and passionate. Like Yoda with better grammar." -- Danny Wallace
"I am stupidly excited about this book" -- The Secret Barrister
"This book made me smarter. And it made me laugh and nod my head, all the while thinking `bloody hell, I wish I could argue like James'. Cogent, necessary, insightful and often very funny." -- Elizabeth Day
