Product description


"A fascinating book" (Sunday Times)

"Vital questions are explored in this stimulating tract for our times, which deserves to be widely read, especially by those who govern us" (Anthony Storr)

"Well worth reading ... the author has recognised important social phenomena which have escaped less astute or honest observers" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Oliver James is a necessary and powerful voice in our culture, and Britain on the Couch is a fabulous exposure of the failure of the neo-liberal project" (Tom Hodgkinson, editor of the Idler)

"I think Oliver James and I are getting at the same thing: we are encouraged to believe that we can sort out our problems without any real effort and get pretty fed up when it becomes obvious we can't" (John Humphreys, Devil's Advocate)

Book Description

"Why we're unhappier than we were in the 1950s, despite being richer - from bestselling author of Affluenza, Oliver James"
