The runaway Sunday Timesbestseller by one of the most incisive broadcasters around. Every day, James O'Brien listens to people blaming benefits scroungers, the EU, Muslims, feminists and immigrants. But what makes James's daily LBC show such essential listening - and has made James a standout social media star - is the careful way he punctures their assumptions and dismantles their arguments live on air, every single morning. In the bestselling How To Be Right, James provides a hilarious and invigorating guide to talking to people with faulty opinions. With chapters on every lightning-rod issue, James shows how people have been fooled into thinking the way they do, and in each case outlines the key questions to ask to reveal fallacies, inconsistencies and double standards. If you ever get cornered by ardent Brexiteers, Daily Mail disciples or little England patriots, this book is your conversation survival guide. 'I have had a ringside seat as a significant swathe of the British population was persuaded that their failures were the fault of foreigners, that unisex lavatories threatened their peace of mind and that 'all Muslims' must somehow apologise for terror attacks by extremists. I have tried to dissuade them and sometimes succeeded... The challenge is to distinguish sharply between the people who told lies and the people whose only offence was to believe them.'- James O'Brien… (mais)

Rounding out to 3.5. O'Brien is preaching to the converted here but it's a short, entertaining and engaging book (the audiobook is very well produced too, with example conversations from his radio show reperformed). ( )

Highly entertaining just like his radio show, so much that I gifted a hard copy to my other half. I enjoyed the audiobook version, read by the author, and found the dramatized phone conversation excellent...in fact, I could recall to have listened at least to two of those he inserted in the narrative.
I look forward to his next book! ( )

I don’t actually think there was one thing James O’Brien said that I didn’t agree with but not because I am unable to think critically like so many people he comes up against, simply because he says so many things I already think but it a much more eloquent way.

More people need to read this, be exposed to his points and begin to view the information given to us by press and politicians in a more critical light.

So many people are on the wrong side of history at the moment but not those who can attempt to think like Mr O’Brien.

In his new book the popular radio host writing about the topics dividing the country nowadays; Trump, Brexit, LGBT rights, xenophobia, etc. The book, with excerpts from his radio show, is an interesting summary of an intelligent liberal person`s view about today`s Britain. ( )

James O'Brien is nearly always right. As a call-in radio host with LBC, he fields a large number of calls every day on a wide-ranging assortment of topics, and yet in the majority of his discussions and debates he comes out on top.

How is this possible? The answer is surprisingly simple, and is one that O'Brien carefully unpacks in his book of essays, 'How to Be Right.'

The answer is to ask questions. Simple questions, like 'Why do you think that that's the case?' These are questions that all interviews should be ready to use in every circumstance and yet, in today's hands-off, overly-subjective media, very few do. But the result is amazing: strongly-held views, like why Brexit is such a good idea, unravel at the tugging of this first string. It generally turns out that the holder of these beliefs does not fully understand them, or fully understand why they are holding them in the first place. Tug, and they fall apart - and that is all you have to do to be right. ( )

O’Brien .... spends three hours a day, five days a week, talking to callers about their political concerns. The book is neatly divided into chapters that cover the subjects most frequently raised, among them political correctness, Islam and Islamism, Brexit, Trump, the age gap and feminism. Within these chapters, O’Brien includes transcriptions of on-air conversations with his callers, around which he wraps informed, sharply articulated analysis.
