Everything in Moderation (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Over the last fifteen years Daniel Finkelstein has been one of the best known and most popular columnists on The Times newspaper. Now, this book brings together his greatest, wittiest journalism.

As an award-winning journalist, Daniel Finkelstein wrote some of The Times' best-loved columns, ranging across politics, social affairs, history and popular culture. In politics, he has worked for John Major, William Hague and David Cameron, and now sits in the House of Lords.

This collection brings together Finkelstein's most brilliant pieces, from the personal - with his articles on the deaths of both of his parents and on growing up Jewish in Britain - to the political, with columns on how to predict elections, the way political science showed us Ed Miliband was in trouble, and why the 'base rate of coups' meant Corbyn's leadership was inevitable. Included also are Finkelstein's unpublished Isaiah Berlin lecture arguing that history has a direction; his columns on Walt Disney, Hilary Clinton, David Bowie, Clement Attlee and Muhammed Ali; and a selection of his arguments on football, assisted dying, the art of the prime minister, and the musical Hamilton.

From one of the defining journalists of our times, this collection gives sharp view of the man behind the column - and an eclectic insight into what have been the biggest debate points of the modern day.
