The Elis James and John Robins' Show has become cult listening, and that cult has registered for charitable status, published quarterly accounts and been given a full blessing by the Archbishop of Broadcasting. It's official: Elis and John are a religion, and this book is their Holy Vible.
Have you ever failed to Keep It Session? Is your new flatmate a complete coin? Have you ever eaten Space Raiders on the toilet and written 'Grief Is Living' in your journal? Then this book is for you. If not, don't worry, it won't be long before you're making up games, looking at Freddie, or facing your own personal farthing-gate.
Our obsessions make us what we are, and though you may never have addressed a will to Brian May or cried watching Ronnie O' Sullivan make a 147, you'll have done something similar, and Elis and John are here to tell you that you're not weird, so come on in, and taste the vibe! Or should I say, READ the vibe!

A brilliantly funny pair of rascals. This hilarious book is a perfect time out in a world gone crazy. Russell Howard
Elis and John have created the funniest, most original and hilariously personal radio show of the last decade. And now they have written the funniest, most original adn hilariously personal book to match. Josh Widdicombe
In modern living's quest for authenticity, Elis and John are the real deal. Theirs is a reconstructed version of masculinity that includes self-awareness, fallibility, bravery, kindness, intelligence, compassion, and, not least, humour * THE INDEPENDENT *
Comedians James and Robins have collaborated and assured readers that our obsessions are what make us - you may not have addressed a will to Brian May or cried watching Ronnie O'Sullivan make a 147, but you will have done something similar. If you're looking for reassurance that weird is the way forward then this is the book to read. The success of The Elis James and John Robins Show on Radio X means their friendship, humour and pure madness has been reflected in their "Vible" for everyday life -- Lucy Fisher * THE BIG ISSUE IN THE NORTH *
These good friends have parlayed their Radio X show into a hit tour, and now this book, in which they offer
their version of the Bible. But a bible in the very loosest of senses, one worshipping snooker icon Ronnie
O'Sullivan, spicy curries and, in Robins' case, Queen's back catalogue. The unapologetically Welsh James
and the unashamedly obsessive Robins make a formidable doubleact, sometimes affectionate but mostly bickering like an elderly couple
