During the current recession it seems our traditional stiff upper lip can only last so long before those other world-beating British skills come to the fore u quiet grumbling and resigned cynicism. Sod Calm and Get Angry is for anyone who has finally had enough of bankers and politicians and bosses telling them to keep sodding calm and to carry bloody on. Sod Calm and Get Angry is both a rallying call and essential tome of comforting wisdom for the depressed, enraged, disgruntled, disenfranchised and those of a naturally curmudgeonly disposition.
