Do They Think You’re Stupid?

NB: Published in hardback and in some territories as The Duck that Won the Lottery.

“What is pleasant about Baggini, and explains why he has such a presence as a popular professor (‘do not assume that because someone is described as a “popular philosopher” lots of people actually like him’), is that he uses familiar examples and takes us through them with clarity and good humour; we may not consider ourselves philosophers but we can appreciate it when he tells us an anecdote which suggests that Eric Bloom from Blue Öyster Cult has a low opinion of Folkestone.”

Nicholas Lezard picks Do They Think You’re Stupid? as his paperback choice in this week’s Guardian.

“Baggini’s is by far the most useful book to have beside you … during an election”

David Aaronovitch recommends Do They Think Your Stupid? in The Times (17 April)

“Every society needs its guardian of good sense: Baggini is ours.”
