Product Description

About the Author

Iain Hollingshead spent two years on the Letters to the Editor desk before becoming a full-time feature writer for The Daily Telegraph. His more serious assignments have included reporting on the student riots in London and interviewing everyone from Michael Atherton to Gurkha veterans to a member of Seal Team Six, the elite unit which killed Osama bin Laden. His less serious assignments have included taking a bath in Las Vegas with six albino rabbits, spending three days behind the scenes at the Miss England competition, camping outside Westminster Abbey for the Royal Wedding, eating in five Michelin starred restaurants in one day, learning to flirt in Pizza Express, learning to Dance in Mamma Mia!, performing stand-up comedy to 300 eight-year-olds, training with the Royal Marines, climbing into a Spitfire and experiencing a Brighton nudist beach first hand. He now writes freelance for the paper. He has edited four bestselling collections of unpublished letters from the Daily Telegraph for Aurum.

I am not a Daily Telegraph reader however I saw a piece about this book on BBC Breakfast and thought it looked quite interesting. It was utterly brilliant! The book includes letters which were not published by the paper, with some it is obvious why but it is also great that some of the others can now be shared with the Great British public. There is a lot of humour, common sense and wonderfully entertaining viewpoints. The book is well laid out and presented and it is easy to pick up and put down (although it is quite addictive). I would reccommend it to anyone who is interested in current and recent issues and I hope another will be published soon!

All my Christmas shopping solved in one - lifesaver! Perfect to dip in and out of and each time found another gem letter to make me laugh. I may even write to the Telegraph myself to thank them so I get a feature in volume 2!

The book was exactly as described, If you enjoy a few minutes each day reading through the Letters to the Editor page of any newspaper/magazine then you will enjoy the wit and humour displayed by contributors to this book. An easy read which provided laugh out loud moments as well as pause for thought.

"Am I alone in thinking?" is a collection of letters that were submitted but not published by the Telegraph and it certainly shows that the English sense of humour and wit is alive and kicking. Although I have my doubts about the guy who thinks he's in MI5 who keeps submitting some very bizarre letters..... If you like topical rants on a variety of subjects or are living away from home- this will definitely cheer you up!

I'd been given the sequel to this book as a present. As a reader of The Times I was skeptical about enjoying a collection of letters written by Torygraph readers. I was very mistaken, these books are hilarious, thought provoking and sometimes crazy, an insight into the lives of others, a review of the year's news (year published) and a sideways look at British life. Thoroughly enjoyable, a must read.

A very witty book.These are the letters that didn't make it to the Telegraph's letters' page but still capture the daily mood of sometimes lesser headline making news. If you are reading this book you will find yourself reading it out loud or to others so that they may share your enjoyment.So many talented letter-writers out there. There should be a second volume...please!Am I Alone in Thinking...?: Unpublished Letters to the Editor (Daily Telegraph)

Hilarious in places, thought provoking in others. Has it's weaker bits but I really did enjoy it and will get the next one in the series for reading on the train/'plane where it would be perfect cos you don't need to maintain concentration for longer than one letter at a time.

This is the most hilarious book I have ever read. The letters are most definitely not PC and show us what a wonderful sense of humour we British have if only we are allowed to express it without fear of instant reprisal from the PC camp. A laugh out loud on every page. If you want cheering up this is the book for you.
