Selfish Whining Monkeys Summary


Selfish Whining Monkeys: How we Ended Up Greedy, Narcissistic and Unhappy by Rod Liddle

With a sharp eye for the magnificently absurd, Rod Liddle sets light to modern-day Britain.

`One of Britain's funniest, most daring columnists. If he weren't so offensive you'd almost call him a national treasure' Mail on Sunday

`I, and my generation, seem feckless and irresponsible, endlessly selfish, whining, avaricious, self-deluding, self-obsessed, spoiled and corrupt and ill.'

What is it that has transformed the British who in living memory were admired for their unassuming, stiff-upper-lipped capacity for `muddling through' into the feckless,
obese, self-deluding, avaricious and self-obsessed whingers we have become? Savagely funny and relentlessly contrary, yet with a poignant sense of all that we have lost, Rod Liddle mercilessly exposes the absurdity, cant and humbuggery of the way we live now.

Selfish Whining Monkeys Reviews


`Liddle lured me in with his riotously entertaining take on everything from attitudes towards obesity to what he calls our "respec" culture' Independent

`A magnificent torrent of analysis and abuse - 90 per cent brilliant, 10 per cent bonkers ... A flaming, bloodthirsty romp, scything through the cliches and lazy thinking of an effete liberal establishment' Times Higher Education Supplement

`Filled with his trademark dry and self-hating wit, I would recommend even Rod-sceptics read his book' New Statesman
