Spoilt Rotten : The Toxic Cult of Sentimentality, Paperback / softback Book

Spoilt Rotten : The Toxic Cult of Sentimentality Paperback / softback


In Spoilt Rotten, social commentator Theodore Dalrymple (Our Culture or What is Left of It, 2009) grinds his axe at our sentimentality-centric culture where feelings have become the yardstick of everything we do: safe driving, education, taking of responsibility (none), sentimentality (everywhere).

In this forensic polemic of maudlin popular culture from X-factor to Super Nannies, Dalrymple wields his scalpel at all our modern sacred cows.

Children will be speechless, for once, parents will hang their heads in shame!
