  • A model of lucidity, humour and humanity - we should be thankful that we have him

    Times Literary Supplement
  • Simply brilliant ... Its calm but brutal honesty makes for compelling reading. This book is needed now more than ever

    The Secret Barrister
  • James is more right than ever -- particularly in our entrenched, binary thinking culture -- about the importance of being able to admit to being wrong

    David Baddiel
  • An admirably personal guide to the lost art of changing your mind. James showed me how often a change of mind is really a change of heart

    Marina Hyde
  • The conscience of liberal Britain

    New Statesman
  • Highly personal and confessional, yet also a passionate and brilliantly argued appeal against the dangerous tribalism of our times

    David Olusoga
  • Classic James O'Brien - smart, analytical, self-aware and important to public debate at a time the toffs in power are taking it into the sewer

    Alastair Campbell
  • I know few broadcasters as consistently, forensically, brilliant as James O'Brien

    Emily Maitlis
  • Blending profound self-reflection with genuine warmth... the perfect book for a loud world that seems more divided than ever

    John Amaechi OBE
  • Such verbal ability seems like a superpower
