Reviews

  • Goodhart offers an impeccably sensible and decent exposition of how the political elites have failed their societies ... The book makes compelling reading both for voters and those who want to get elected by them

    Max Hastings, The Sunday Times
  • [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
  • 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

    Observer
  • 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 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
