Sue Baker's view...

Giles Coren has been, is and will be angry; there is much to make him angry, most famously a hapless sub-editor fiddling with his prose - that piece of splendid invective is here reproduced in full. For those of us too timid to rant and rave this is superior therapy, good practice at getting beyond “I’m sorry...but”, “Excuse me” and “I say”.

Synopsis

Anger Management (for Beginners) by Giles Coren

Fat people,Footballers, Flip-flops, Formula One, Wheelie luggageCycle helmets, Processed ham, Skiing,Dogs... Are you all wound up? Boiling and ready to blow? Breathe deeply. Relax. Master of spleen Giles Coren, author of what The Guardian called 'The Maddest Email Ever', has an unbeatable technique for working through the anger: He does it for you.

Reviews

'Coren gets to do what he does best -- toot the horn of his blazing wit and linguistic skill, best exercised in relation to himself -- and we realise there's scope for irritation about things we'd never even considered before. Coren fans will devour these short bursts of vitriol -- it's his classic and best prose. Some will roll their eyes at his narcissism but let's face it, if there's one writer who can pull off a stunt like this, it's Mr Coren.'
City AM

'The anger bit is pretty obvious but the management aspect is more mysterious. Unless it's that any unsuspecting angry nutter who picks it up assuming it's a self-help manual will eventually put it down thinking, blimey, I don't have a problem at all next to Psycho there.'
Spectrum

'This Week We're... wishing we could be as blunt about life as Giles Coren in his book Anger Management for Beginners...Obesity, footballers, skiing, cycle helmets, barcodes, dogs - nothing escapes his well-aimed, acerbic barbs. We might have the beginnings of an inappropriate crush...'
Glasgow Herald

'FUNNY. FUNNY. FUNNY. FACT...BRILLIANT book'
Claudia Winkleman

'There can be few better companions to unwind with on holiday than the irrepressible Giles Coren, who will have you laughing out loud with his left-field take on life's gripes.'
Sunday Herald

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Lovereading is a wonderful way to expand my literary horizons, discover inspiring authors & get the chance to read new novels first. #loveit

Zarina de Ruiter

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Lovereading always comes up with great suggestions and has introduced me to enjoyable books and new authors to discover.
