• Praise for THE GREAT BRITISH DREAM FACTORY: Delightfully good ... an exuberant and learned celebration of British culture

    Nick Cohen, Observer
  • Not only thoroughly entertaining, but crammed with as many serious insights as a shelf-ful of academic studies.

    Alwyn W Turner, The Telegraph
  • Relentlessly entertaining

    Daisy Goodwin, Sunday Times
  • I read it in less than two days, my attention never flagging ... It is dramatic, perceptive and often extremely funny

    John Preston, Spectator
  • Terrific fun ... Sandbrook isn't like other historians ... He heads off down strange, neglected byways, teasing out unexpected connections, with the results often proving far more illuminating - and enjoyable - than conventional narratives ... I defy you not to be swept up in a narrative that's as colourful as it is dramatic.

    John Preston, Mail on Sunday
