Read full description of the books:
I bought this in a second-hand bookshop in South Africa, charmed by the shop owner's recommendation taped to the first page of the book that described Bywater as "a refreshingly bad-tempered git... not for all tastes, but [we] enjoy him."
That's about the most accurate review of Bywater one could write. Big Babies is part trenchantly honest, part V for Vendetta, part your grumpy grandfather complaining about how it was all so much better and simpler in the good old days. I couldn't put it down - it's eye-opening (and embarrassingly enough for the reader) about what should really be very obvious - how we are all being infantilised, how we secretly enjoy it and are relieved we need never grow up - ads, banks, corporations, governments talk "at" us and baby us and we fall willingly (even gratefully?) into their traps.
Bywater is as much recommended reading for a well-rounded awake human as Carl Sagan is, and that's the highest compliment I can pay any writer.
