9780007351275: Selfish Whining Monkeys: How we Ended Up Greedy, Narcissistic and Unhappy
Críticas:

‘”Selfish, Whining Monkeys” more than justifies Liddle’s status as one of Britain’s funniest, most daring columnists. If he weren’t so offensive you’d almost call him a national treasure’ James Delingpole, Mail on Sunday, ****

‘Readers will probably know in advance if they are going to enjoy or be offended by Rod Liddle’s new book. Liddle is, by some margin, Britain’s most prolific pundit … His loyal readers will love it’ Evening Standard

‘Liddle lured me in with his riotously entertaining take on everything from attitudes towards obesity to what he calls our "respec" culture. He's admirably self-deprecating and happy to take his share of the blame for the problems he identifies’ Matt Cain, Independent

‘The best way to read the Liddle book is as a self-loathing joke’ Julie Burchill, Spectator

‘There's much to enjoy in this book: Liddle's heart is indeed in the right place when it comes to the poxes of neoliberalism, democratic emasculation, commodity fetishism and globalisation on our body politic’ Will Self, Guardian

‘Filled with his trademark dry and self-hating wit, I would recommend even Rod-sceptics read his book; although sometimes called a contrarian, all his arguments are reasoned and reasonable and it’s not your standard country-gone-to-the-dogs polemic. Far from being nostalgic, the society he describes us leaving behind sounds depressing and cruel at times, although filled with a certain Viz-like British humour’ New Statesman

‘If you haven’t heard quite enough yet this summer about middle-aged, middle-class, straight, white men and how they are so badly done by in Broken Britain, then this is the book for you’ Independent, The Hot List

‘Liddle has much to be happily unhappy about; he is after all a man whose anger is in tune with the distemper of the times. He believes — as do many of our countrymen and women — that this is a bad moment in our nation’s history, and that things are getting worse. His book should sell’ David Aaronovitch, The Times

Críticas:

'Rod Liddle defines himself as a "liberal fundamentalist" and he is never far from controversy. He was the first blogger ever to be censured by the Press Complaints Commission. Since establishing himself as a columnist, his favourite themes have been the dangers supposedly posed by religion and immigration. Liddle is one of Britain's most prolific polemicists with columns in the Sunday Times, the Spectator and Country Life. He is popular with his readers partly because he can be one of the most amusing writers in the media. Proud of his allegiance to Millwall Football Club, he makes frequent references to his south-east London birthplace and loves to champion a white working-class urban constituency that he regards as threatened by an immigration-loving liberal elite that lives in what he describes as a "golden crescent" north of the River Thames.' Independent
