'This book could change the way we live ... [a] relaxed, affable, yet startlingly lucid analysis of humanity's tendency to complain'-The Independent
Complaint can be a powerful political tool. Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King both used it to drive social change. So why do we moan about increasingly trivial things - like the weather or public transport? Do Brits complain less than Americans? Do men and women complain about different things? What is the best way to complain? From Adam and Eve to the Iraq War, Baggini analyzes precisely what we complain about, how and why. You can't complain about that!
'Complaint should be compulsory reading. Politicians should be tested on it before being allowed to stand for office. Baggini may have sandbagged the polemicist's trade, but am I complaining? Not a bit.', Michael Bywater, The Independent
'[A]n enjoyably astringent and wry read.', The Guardian
'... popular philosophy of the best kind.', Financial Times
'Baggini is as accessible as ever.', Lesley McDowell, Independent on Sunday
