Product description


...relaxed, affable yet startlingly lucid analysis of humanity's tendency to complain...Baggini's analysis of the categories of complaint is, like the book, both rigorous and entertaining ...Complaint should be compulsory reading. Politicians should be tested on it before being allowed to stand for office. (Michael Bywater The Independent)

...[a] sweetly reasoned complaint.

(Independent on Sunday)

Baggini does a wonderful job of showing the complexity of a topic that on the surface seems very simple. His clear writing style and presentation makes this a very engaging book that will appeal to a wide range of readers. (Library Journal USA 2009-08-15)

...short and lucid book devoted to an important but neglected subject...[a] stimulating book.


fascinating. (Financial Times)

Complaint is an enjoyably astringent and wry read.


There are no complaints about this book.

(Sunday Express)
