'Marmot's important study shows that - in every culture - our happiness and health are closely related to the place we occupy in the status hierarchy, and that that the key to status is our occupation' (Will Hutton, Guardian)
'Marmot's fascinating study not only presents its formidable research accessibly, but offers pragmatic steps with which governments, if so inclined, could redress the imbalance ... this is a pressing polemic bolstered by facts' (Scotland on Sunday)
'Bubbling with findings, discreetly illuminated by the light of social justice, written considerately for ordinary readers, Status Syndrome is packed with ideas that should have been coursing through public debate for years' (Independent)
'Marmot is a world-class scientist who writes deeply about matters of life and death with the grace of a world-class essayist ... Anyone concerned about the health of our society should read this book' (Robert D. Putnam, author of Bowling Alone)
Social circumstances are key factors in dictating life expectancy and propensity to illness. The full extent to which we are at the mercy of social hierarchy is revealed in Marmot's fascinating and troubling insight.See all Product description
