"'O'Rourke is a glittering writer, light but punchy, wry and impassioned, witheringly witty one moment and rambunctiously sarcastic the next... This is a judicious, finely written book... consistently funny, with cracking asides and snarky interjections. If you're daunted by Wealth of Nations, O'Rourke's riff on it is the next best thing.' Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday 'Pithy, forceful and deliberately anachronistic... A witty book.' Andrew McKie, Daily Telegraph 'Sophisticated and comprehensive... whilst retaining the author's trademark wit... For those without the stomach to read the real thing, P. J. O'Rourke's book will provide an unusually enjoyable starting point.' Allister Heath, Literary Review"
