During the current recession it seems our traditional stiff upper lip can only last so long before those other world-beating British skills come to the fore - quiet grumbling and resigned cynicism. Sod Calm and Get Angry is for anyone who has finally had enough of bankers and politicians and bosses telling them to keep sodding calm and to carry bloody on. Sod Calm and Get Angry is both a rallying call and an essential tome of comforting wisdom and quotes for the depressed, enraged, disgruntled, disenfranchised and those of a naturally curmudgeonly disposition.

One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important - Bertrand Russell

On Money
The easiest way for your children to learn about money is for you not to have any - Katherine Whitehorn
