21st century Britain: a point of view from Clive James, one of the fiercest and funniest critics.

The BBC Radio 4 series A Point of View has been on the air since 2007. Clive James was one of the most popular presenters, and here his original pieces – sixty in total – and previously unpublished postscripts are collected together in one volume.

Read along with Clive James as he offers his informative, thought-provoking and entertaining insights into everything from wheelie bins to plastic surgery, Elizabeth Hurley to the Olympics, Britain’s Got Talent to Damien Hirst, Harry Potter to giving up smoking – and plenty more besides.

‘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
