About this Event

A unique chance to see voice of reason and award-winning LBC broadcaster James O’Brien in conversation, and put your questions to him, as he discusses his new book HOW NOT TO BE WRONG in this exclusive book launch.

James’s previous bestselling book, HOW TO BE RIGHT, explored how to make your arguments heard. In his new book, James will be looking at the difficult issue of how to change your mind in this deeply personal and unflinchingly honest account of how winning arguments doesn’t necessarily mean you’re right.

In HOW NOT TO BE WRONG, James examines his personal beliefs and opinions on everything from racial prejudice to showing emotions, from fat-shaming to tattoos, and digs up the real reasons behind them. In this intimate and entertaining conversation, James will discuss the process of writing the book, and the lessons he learned about himself whilst doing so, as well as discussing his career more widely. You’ll also have the chance to put your own questions to James.

Don’t miss your chance to hear from one of Britain’s most incisive, witty and necessary voices in captivating and thought-provoking conversation before you read his new book.

This event takes place on publication day for How Not To Be Wrong, so you should receive your copy of the book in the week after the event.

    THE INTIMATE, REVEALING NEW BOOK FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BESTSELLING, PRIZE-WINNING HOW TO BE RIGHT

    There's no point having a mind if you're not willing to change it

    James O'Brien has built well over a million loyal listeners to his radio show by dissecting the opinions of callers live on air, every day. But winning the argument doesn't necessarily mean you're right.

    In this deeply personal book, James turns the mirror on himself to reveal what he has changed his mind about and why, and explores how examining and changing our own views is our new civic duty in a world of outrage, disagreement and echo chambers. He writes candidly about the stiff upper lip attitudes and toxic masculinity that coloured his childhood, and the therapy and personal growth that have led him question his assumptions and explore new perspectives. Laying open his personal views on everything from racial prejudice to emotional vulnerability, from fat-shaming to tattoos, he then delves into the real reasons -- often irrational or unconscious -- he holds them.

    Unflinchingly honest, revealing and funny, How Not to Be Wrong is a tonic for a world more divided than ever and a personal manifesto for a better way of thinking and living.

    Because after all, if we can't change our own minds we'll never really be able to change anyone else's.
