'[Goodhart] has written a book that is thoughtful, well argued and dangerously moderate. It may even be an incitement to independent thinking.' --The Times
'[A] provocative take on the UK's new tribal divisions ... And it broadly works ... The Road to Somewhere has the feel of a book whose timing ... is pitch-perfect.' -- Andrew Marr, New Statesman'Goodhart's exploration of this underlying divide -- and the question of what might be done -- is not only timely but also offers an accessible, evidence-based and direct account of how these conflicts are reshaping the political world around us.' -- Matthew Goodwin, Financial Times'Whatever other objections Goodhart's new book might provoke, few could call it irrelevant or untimely ... he returns to this most vexed terrain, picking his way through nettles and thorns that might deter thinner-skinned writers.' -- Jonathan Freedland, The Guardian'Goodhart has clarity of argument and courage. He has been making these points for a decade and urging the mainstream to engage with them. He does not do fads.' -- The Observer'[Goodhart] has written what may turn out to be the most sympathetic and insightful book about Britain's discontented masses.' -- Toby Young, The Spectator'Mr Goodhart's book seems likely to inform the debate on what post-Brexit Britain should look like.' -- The Economist'This meticulously researched book ... enables us to imagine Brexit as a moment that could just prove to be the start of a national renewal.' -- Prospect'Challenging and illuminating.' -- Will Hutton'David Goodhart offers the best and most complete explanation I've seen for why things seem to be coming apart in so many countries at the same time.' --Jonathan Haidt, author of 'The Righteous Mind'

As a church minister, I was particularly struck by the disconnect between (often) highly educated ministers, and the need to serve in areas which will not share many of our cultural assumptions. A thought-provoking read!
