Inhaltsangabe

Random House presents the audiobook edition of How to Be Right, written and read by James O'Brien. 

Forget agreeing to disagree - it’s time to learn How to Be Right.

Every day, James O’Brien listens to people blaming benefits scroungers, the EU, Muslims, feminists and immigrants. But what makes James’s daily LBC show such essential listening - and has made James a standout social media star - is the careful way he punctures their assumptions and dismantles their arguments live on air, every single morning.

In How to Be Right, James provides a hilarious and invigorating guide to talking to people with faulty opinions. With chapters on every lightning-rod issue, James shows how people have been fooled into thinking the way they do and in each case outlines the key questions to ask to reveal fallacies, inconsistencies and double standards.

If you ever get cornered by ardent Brexiteers, Daily Mail disciples or little England patriots, this book is your conversation survival guide.

‘I have had a ringside seat as a significant swathe of the British population was persuaded that their failures were the fault of foreigners, that unisex lavatories threatened their peace of mind and that ‘all Muslims’ must somehow apologise for terror attacks by extremists. I have tried to dissuade them and sometimes succeeded.... The challenge is to distinguish sharply between the people who told lies and the people whose only offence was to believe them.’ (James O’Brien)

Common sense in a time of madness

I am ever surprised at the gulability and blindness of people when confronted with the truth, when that truth exposes their own faults. misconceptions and bias. James explains this better that I ever could. Showing today's leaders for what they really are and how they work. It's just a shame that people have been brainwashed for decades by our politicians and media. Nice one James!

Brilliant analysis of our current time

I 've finished this brilliant book in two Sessions. James is giving us a comprehensive analysis of our current history. What I also liked a lot was his concrete proposals on how dismantle layers. We all have to stand up for our future. It seems that war of opinions is on the horizon and we all have to be well equipped to keep a peaceful and fact based conversation with all our citizens
