Product description

Review

I've come to consider Will Storr the best writer out there in terms of writing about human experience and the concepts and complexities of psychology. I've never seen such a well thought through and well argued piece of work as Selfie, really taking ideas around self esteem back to their philosophical and historical origins - and pulling them all to pieces. I loved it. -- Professor Sophie Scott, Deputy Director, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London Will Storr has a gift. He's written an interesting and absorbing book without sacrificing scientific rigour. I'll be recommending it widely. -- Professor Constantine Sedikides, Director of the Centre for Research on Self Identity, University of Southampton Will Storr is a versatile, imaginative, committed long-form journalist with a populist touch . . . a talented, ambitious writer. * Independent * Storr can open chapters like a stage conjurer, and his prose has an easy, laconic style embracing Jon Ronson's taste for the fabulously weird and Louis Theroux's ability to put his subjects at ease. He is a funny and companionable guide * Guardian *
