Product description

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!
