Review quote

'This list of things and people we shamefully enjoy is toe-curlingly accurate' -- First Magazine 'Compare your appalling lapses in judgement to the rest of the nation' -- Financial Times 'My guilty pleasures - plural - are the novels of Jilly Cooper' -- Ian Rankin 'My guilty pleasure, when I've checked that my kids are in bed, is to settle down to a top night of watching fat American policemen chase juvenile car thieves through trailer parks somewhere in Florida.' -- Dom Joly 'I don't feel guilty about anything, pleasurable or not' -- Julie Burchill 'Compare your appalling lapses in judgement to the rest of the nation' -- OK! Magazine / Hot Stars 'Reading this book ! is in itself something of a guilty pleasure' -- Times Literary Supplement
