The funniest writer of his generation. Apart from me -- Dom Joly Comedy writing doesn't get any better than this - unless you go round Danny's flat and make him add a bit in pen -- Ross Noble Join Me is the kind of book I love: effortlessly funny, painfully accurate and entertaining to the very end. Brilliant -- Mike Gayle Extremely enjoyable. once cannot help wondering whether he has stumbled upon the future shape of spirituality * Daily Telegraph * One of the funniest stories you will ever read * Daily Mail *
