From the Publisher"Utterly bloody rude."
— Terence Blacker, The Daily Mail (London)
"One can only admire the zest of the writing and applaud its splendid lack of political correctness."
— Beryl Bainbridge, Mail on Sunday (London)
"To be fair, it's funny, erudite, hurtful and scathing but, sadly, his observations about us do have a horrible ring of truth.... Think about it — he might be right, damn him!"
— Western Daily Press
"[Gill's] writing is appealing and amusing in that way that is especially acceptable on a Sunday morning. Mr. Gill is a polemicist, and he polemically attacks aspects of England that he finds tiresome.... One is frequently forced to concede that he has a point."
— Simon Heffer, The Daily Telegraph (London)
"[A. A. Gill is] a wildly colorful generaliser."
— Peter Lewis, The Daily Mail (London)
"At various times caustic, hyperbolic, acerbic, juvenile, indignant, and solipsistic...[Gill] is also one of the most astute and entertaining observers of human cultures in recent years."
— Amy Farley, The New York Sun
"Imagine Evelyn Waugh reborn as one of Nick Hornby's endearingly superficial protagonists, and you have London's Sunday Times television and restaurant critic Gill: droll, astute, irritable, irritating and always cleaver-sharp."
— Publishers Weekly
