    Review quote
    'Smart and hilarious ... this is James at his entertaining best' Daily Express 'Irreverent and funny, clever without being cynical and not afraid to flex his wits on anything and everything' Daily Telegraph 'Warm, witty whiplash prose ... the talks read as well on the page as they sounded on the radio' Sunday Times
