Product Description

Review

'This is a relevant and timely subject and Charlie Campbell is terrifically good company. It's not often that I wish a book were longer.' --Frances Wilson, Telegraph

'The word 'history' in the subtitle might suggest a systematic and scholary progression through the centuries, but Campbell's delicious little book is something far more beguiling: a ruminative essay by a witty and perceptive author.' --Francis Wheen, Literary Review

'A sweeping history of the blame game... starting with Adam's dissing of Eve, Campbell proceeds to take down everyone from Marx... to Freud... from Larkin... to Dawkins.' --The Observer

The other reviewer says it better than I but is too generous in his scoring. Should a book on such a topic be using terms like 'loony' (p70)? Oh Duckworth, be ashamed!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a lightweight book, a sort of compendium of blame, and not worth the cover price. Quite amusing anecdotes but basically a pretty lazy collection which you could get more of elsewhere. Reasonably amusing if you like half an hour's reading.
