John Bodi - Death by a Thousand Sluts 

While I’m talking about books you should read, this is the first book for quite a while that I read in one sitting. Do not read this if you are female - you simply won’t understand it. Do not read it if you have never had a bad week in your life, because you won’t understand it either.

And when you get to the end, you might realise that Bodi’s real achievement is that, throughout the depressions, crises and breakdowns, not once does he turn to the doctor and ask for some anti-depressants. He never doubts that his troubles and inner chaos can be sorted out without drugs and by action. I’ve had some bad moments, but none as bad as some of the ones Bodi describes. And his insights into people and his descriptions of the London Day Game scene are worth every penny.

Just not if you’re a girl of either sex.
