Reviews for Qualityland

How much you enjoy this is in direct proportion to how much trouble you think we're in. Sleep tight. * KIRKUS REVIEWS * This is spot-on satire. * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY * Satire reminiscent of Douglas Adams or Rob Grant * STARBURST * The best kind of satire, offering up a funhouse mirror version of our world that is so smart and so cutting, you have to laugh to keep from crying. * Rob Hart, author of THE WAREHOUSE * An amusing skewering of the logical consequences of the world's increasing efficiency and optimisation. * NEW SCIENTIST * QUALITYLAND is very funny and very scary - my kind of book. * Mike Judge, creator of Silicon Valley and King of the Hill *
