I got the year off to a good start; several O’Rourke’s fell by the wayside as I blitzed through them, including the new one. Which has convinced me that I have to have read The Wealth of Nations at some point. I just don’t want to have to read it to get there…
So I thought I’d continue with such weighty reading material for a wee while. And thusly I have just finished this major tome:
Now, there are a lot of really deep philosophical concepts* dealt with in the book, but he covers these by using stupidly large fonts and swearing a lot.
IN fact, the book is a bit like the show: name drops a lot, rants a good bit, runs off topic for ages, and yet still manages to be bloody funny.
I’d recommend it; if you like the show, you’ll like the book. If you don’t like the show, I doubt you’d manage to get past the first ten pages without throwing it in the fire.
Chris Moyle: like him or love him, he is The Saviour of Radio 1. And he rawks.
