Coren gets to do what he does best - toot the horn of his blazing wit and linguistic skill, best exercised in relation to himself - and we realise there's scope for irritation about things we'd never even considered before. Coren fans will devour these short bursts of vitriol - it's his classic and best prose. Some will roll their eyes at his narcissism but let's face it, if there's one writer who can pull off a stunt like this, it's Mr Coren. (City AM)
The anger bit is pretty obvious but the management aspect is more mysterious. Unless it's that any unsuspecting angry nutter who picks it up assuming it's a self-help manual will eventually put it down thinking, blimey, I don't have a problem at all next to Psycho there. (Spectrum)

We might have the beginnings of an inappropriate crush... (Glasgow Herald)

There is one saving aspect to this audio book: it should provoke some great discussions in a reading group. Ask the group to decide which chapter annoyed them most and sit back to watch the action.
Fundamentally I've no empathy for the protagonist: the guy's a bit of a tit.
I have just bought his novel Winkler and I'm hoping that will be as good.
