John O'Farrell studied history at Desborough Comprehensive, where he got a B in his O level. He later continued his research by watching lots of programmes about the Nazis on the UK History Channel. Apart from that he has published three novels, a memoir and three collections of his popular Guardian column. A former comedy scriptwriter for such shows as Spitting Image and Smith and Jones, he is the founder of the satirical website NewsBiscuit and can occasionally be spotted on such TV programmes as Grumpy Old Men, Newsnight Review and Have I Got News For You.Review:
"An engrossing and agonising read. And fortunately, a funny one too...The best historical harbingers are also comedians" Independent on Sunday "An enlightening run through the last 60 years of British history" Woman & Home "This very readable account of how 21st-Century Britain was made is a roller-coaster of a ride through fashion and fascism, terrorism and television, soccer and sex." Good Book Guide "All history is subjective, while O'Farrell's take is comically so...Will bring a smile to grumpy old men everywhere." Daily Mirror
