• Smart, engaging and funny. A book that will make you question everything you think you know about what you want

    Caroline Criado Perez, author of Invisible Women
  • A passionate, provocative book. . . a manifesto for a better society

    The Times
  • One of the most rigorous articulations of the new mood of acceptance. . . a persuasive demolition of many of our cultural stories about how we ought to live

    Oliver Burkeman, Guardian
  • A star

    Daniel Kahneman
  • If only every Englishman could be so free of class-based self-consciousness!

  • A very useful antidote to the pressures of modern living. Very few books change the way you think about yourself, but this is one of them. I would particularly recommend it to young adults with all these life choices ahead of them.

  • A timely warning that we need to question standard assumptions about what is good for individuals and society. Dolan makes a compelling case for putting people's own perceptions of their wellbeing at the heart of policy making

    Lord Gus O’Donnell, former Cabinet Secretary
