THE SUNDAY TIMES-BESTSELLING BOOK BY ONE OF BRITAIN'S BEST-LOVED COMIC WRITERS

**Pre-order now: David Mitchell's new book Dishonesty is the Second-best Policy**

There are many aspects of modern life that trouble award-winning comedian David Mitchell, such as:

Why is every film or TV programme a sequel or a remake?

Why are people so f***ing hung up about swearing?

Why do the asterisks 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?

Join Mitchell on a tour of the absurdities of our times - from Ryanair to Richard III, Downton Abbey to phone etiquette, UKIP to hotdogs made of cats. Funny, provocative and shot through with refreshing amounts of common sense, Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse celebrates and commiserates on the state of things in our not entirely glorious modern world.

'Mitchell is an exceptionally clever, eloquent and spot-on commentator. We should be grateful for him.' Daily Mail, Books of the Year

Hilarious

At times tedious with Brit-centric political commentary but otherwise full of cleverly constructed arguments, satire, elegant prose, undeniable humour, and more than a few words I had to look up! Great and funny book!

Mitchell at his best

Yes, not my real name, sorry David. But loved this, loved this, loved this.

Suijin-sama ,

No, not worse at all!

David Mitchell is a living international treasure. Erudite, endlessly funny - but with heart and wit and brilliantly presented common-sense. Bottle his essence? No, better still, clone him! Many pieces in this book I was forced to read aloud to my wife - who, by the way, did not protest at my intrusion into her head-space.
