Product description

Review

'Scholarship and a wounding wit... an unrelenting war on sentimentality and narcissism, whether it takes the form of compassion culture or... self-conscious slumming... psychobabble...intellectual gobbledegook... There is nothing in his tale to celebrate, yet in the telling he deserves the commendation of anybody who values human civilization. Theodore Dalrymple is... [o]ne of the most interesting men of our times.' --The Times

'Swimming against the tide of... emotional excesses of our age. Nobody has observed the... fallacies of modern England with a clearer eye, or a more intelligent quill. It would be nice to know that the BBC had heard of him because we could expect to hear him deliver next year's Reith Lectures.' --Daily Telegraph

'A razor-sharp expose of our broken society… Both funny and a badly needed corrective to conventional wisdom… hugely readable … gripping real-life stories… tells a deep truth about the sort of society we have become. A future historian, a century hence, will learn more about 21st-century Britain from this book than from any official document. So will you. Please read it.' --Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday

As a doctor, he has worked on four continents and as a court expert, prison GP and psychiatrist, he has worked in the East End of London and inner-city Birmingham.
