Why is my jumper depreciating? Why are people so f***ing hung up about swearing? Why do the asteriks in that sentence make it ok? Why do so many people want to stop other people doing things, and how can they be stopped from stopping them? Why is every film and TV programme a sequel or a remake? Why are we so reliant on perpetual diversion that someone has created chocolate toothpaste? Is there anything to be done about the internet?
These and many other questions trouble David Mitchell as he delights us with a tour of the absurdities of modern life – Ryanair to Downtown Abbey, sports day to smoking, Poundland to phone etiquette, UKIP to hotdogs made of cats. Funny, provocative and shot through with refreshing amounts of common sense – drawn from Observer columns and including new material, Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse celebrates and commiserates on the state of things in our not entirely glorious nation.
‘David Mitchell is an extremely funny man on screen, in person, in print and very probably underwater.’ Sam Bain, co – writer of Peep Show.
