Reviews

'Jews Don't Count is a supreme piece of reasoning and passionate, yet controlled, argument. From his first sentence, the energy, force and conviction of Baddiel's writing and thinking will transfix you...as readable as an airport thriller...a masterpiece.'
STEPHEN FRY

'I don't think I have ever been so grateful to anyone for writing a book. Baddiel's Jews Don't Count is incisive, urgent, surprisingly funny and short. It's also a beautiful piece of publishing. It needs to be read'
JAY RAYNER

'Brilliant, furious, uncomfortable, funny. Essential reading.'
SIMON MAYO

'I'm about a quarter of the way into this thus far and it's very well argued and written. It's a book you know the author HAD to write, and those are the best books'
JON RONSON

'I only big up work I really believe is good and this is extra-ordinarily good. And important'
JONATHAN ROSS

'This is brilliant - funny and furious, mostly at the same time'
MARINA HYDE

'A convincing and devastating charge sheet' Dominic Lawson, Sunday Times

'It is so gripping - I read it in a single sitting' Stephen Bush, The Times

'A fascinating book, I urge you to read it' Piers Morgan

'I really think it's a great book ... the real triumph is its tone, its straightforwardness, and its spectacular tact and wit' Adam Phillips, author of Monogamy

'this short and powerful book shows, with remarkable humanity and humour, that no contemporary conversation about racism is complete without confronting antisemitism. An essential read - and a compulsory one too, if I had my way.' Sathnam Sanghera

'Funny, complex and intellectually satisfying - a really good piece of work' Frankie Boyle

'Just so brilliantly argued and written, I was completely swept along' Hadley Freeman

'David Baddiel is a brilliant thinker and writer. Even when I disagree with him - especially when I disagree with him - I feel profound gratitude for his intellectual and moral clarity. This is a brave and necessary book.' Jonathan Safran Foer
