Product details

Product description


"Almost indecently enjoyable. A must-read for anyone about to spend Christmas listening to their parents/grandparents talking shit" (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)

"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)

"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)

"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)

"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)

"Funny, wise and passionate. Like Yoda with better grammar." (Danny Wallace)

Book Description

James O'Brien - runaway talk show sensation - with a provocative guide to dismantling small minds and conquering prejudice.
