The concept of this book is genius and obviously extremely topical Unfortunately O'Connell makes it very difficult to enjoy Although some of his concerns on the survivalists featured are valid he presents an increasingly embittered and one sided political viewpoint with zero humour balance or warmth After reading of the nth person he had 'contempt' for I started to feel sorry for O'Connell It became obvious why he has issues with anxiety – he lacks perspective and sees only in black and white Next time you have a good idea like this Mark please give it to Jon Ronson and spare us your hand wringing misery

What a disappointment to me this book isI guess I should not have been surprised given the author's political viewpoint but even so the lack of any balanced perspective is crippling to what could have been a great subject to investigateI didn't finish the book but I did give it a good go in the hope that the author might just venture outside the prison of his own ideologybut no chance The only unintentionally noteworthy moment is when he has to access a book written from a political viewpoint to which he does not subscribe He accesses it online rather than buying a new copyinteresting action from an author Personally I would consign this book to the toilet of one of the bunkers
