"Uniquely engaging... devoted to idleness in all its forms... surprisingly energetic in its sagacious coverage of trends and trendiness... Packed with ideas" ( Time Out)

"The thinking person's Loaded" ( Select)

"Full of good things... genuinely radical, irreverent and iconoclastic" (the late Rt Hon Alan Clark)
