Superbly written... An exhilarating journey which captivates the reader's attention from beginning to end. (Marcus Papadopoulos, Tribune)
Wright is a witty and imaginative writer. (Lewis Jones, Financial Times Magazine)
A profoundly moral work...fine work of cultural history (Andrew Roberts. First Post)
I have read it from cover to cover, and have enjoyed every page (Noel Malcolm, Sunday Telegraph)
Sprightly and readable... the great strength of Wright's quietly inspiring book is that it hums with contemporary relevance (David Schneider, Sunday Times)
...stimulating, amusing... fascinating adventure ride of a book. (Frederick Taylor, Literary Review)
