With brilliance and passion Dorling analyses the mind-set of entitlement among those who hold ever tighter to money, power and life's best rewards, generation to generation." --Polly Toynbee, The Guardian
"A brilliant analysis of the nature of inequality in the UK. It is a 'must read' for anyone who wants to understand inequality and how we might tackle it. " --Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive, RSA
"..salutary, shocking reading." --Boyd Tonkin, The Independent

"Original and angry" --Wall Street Journal
