Editorial Reviews


“Remarkable…What About Me? is one of those books that, by making connections between apparently distinct phenomena, permits sudden new insights into what is happening to us and why.”
George Monbiot, The Guardian

“Paul Verhaeghe brilliantly captures the long-term impact that living in a profit-obsessed society has had on our psychology. An excellent book.”
Hanif Kureishi

“[An] intriguing study of modern identity”
Canberra Times

“This book begins quietly and slowly builds in power and eloquence as it illuminates the impact of the past 30 years of neo-liberal ideology on our sense of identity.” PICK OF THE WEEK
Cameron Woodhead, The Age
