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

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
