'One of the most provocatively entertaining, creatively subversive and, frankly, essential manifestoes of this or any moment' Time Out

'Crammed with laugh-out-loud jokes and witty put-downs . . . acts as a survival guide for everything from the government to housework. Random in its details, essential in its advice' Knave
