'The book everyone's talking about' The Times 'Titania McGrath is a genius' Spectator 'Just as Bridget Jones was the embodiment of the anxiety-ridden Nineties feminist, a creation whose diary entries encapsulated all our hopes, fears and failures, so Titania McGrath is her millennial successor, a girl every bit as lost and confused, every bit as accurately observed - and equally, catastrophically, hilarious.' Sarah Vine, Daily Mail In Woke, Titania McGrath demonstrates how everybody can play their part in the pursuit of social justice. As a millennial icon on the forefront of online activism, Titania is uniquely placed to guide her readers through the often bewildering array of terminology and concepts that constitute twenty-first-century 'wokeness'. These new ideas often leave the general public bemused, particularly if they don't read the Guardian. Being woke is actually much easier than people think. As Titania demonstrates, anyone can be an activist. By simply adding a rainbow flag to your Facebook profile, or calling out an elderly person who doesn't understand what 'non-binary' means, you can change the world for the better. Indeed, social media has now made it possible to show how virtuous you are without having to do anything at all. Timely and indispensable, Titania's step-by-step guide will help you to become the woke person you need to be in an increasingly progressive world. In a non-patronising manner, Titania will explain why you are wrong about everything and how to become more like her.… (mais)

This is a short wickedly satirical book poking fun at the extremes of the "Woke" movement which often demonstrates how a ridiculous obsession with identity politics can distort and frustrate sound and decent aims to achieve justice and improve the lives of marginalised groups. Contrary to what readers might expect, the author is actually on the left, not on the right. A bit of light relief, though also a bit depressing. ( )

This is a fun book, a satire written by Andrew Doyle to poke the bear, that is poke social justice warriors. Doyle is a stand up comedian, a musical playwright, a journalist with a PhD in early Renaissance poetry (Oxford) and a free speech advocate. He is Irish, opinionated, and highly verbal and interesting to watch being interviewed on the many podcast interviews of late. He started a Twitter account of Titania Mcgrath and it has been swamped with followers (600,000). I did want to read his/her book but do prefer his interviews!

5 stars for concept but basically unreadable. This works great as funny tweets, but is unreadably painful as book length, which shows just how unbearable it is as a slightly heightened form of the beliefs of a vocal 5% of society. ( )

Short, finished it in an afternoon. You see what's coming, but still amusing. Interesting to see how other people are reacting or reviewing. ( )
