Publisher's Summary

Why is every film or tv programme a sequel or a remake? 

Why are people so f***ing hung up about swearing? 

Why do the asterisks in that sentence make it okay? 

Why do so many people want to stop other people doing things, and how can they be stopped from stopping them? 

These and many other questions trouble David Mitchell. Join him on a tour of the absurdities of modern life - from Ryanair to Richard III, Downton Abbey to phone etiquette, UKIP to hot dogs made of cats. Funny, provocative and shot through with refreshing amounts of common sense, Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse celebrates and commiserates on the state of things in our not entirely glorious modern world.

Brilliant, and it really does make it worse.

Very funny, with some hilariously quotable content. David Mitchell narrates David Mitchell in a way that only David Mitchell can.
