Everyone You Hate is Going to Die: And Other Comforting Thoughts on Family, Friends, Sex, Love, and More Things That Ruin Your Life (Paperback)Daniel Sloss (author)
Covering almost any relationship imaginable between two people – as well as certain countries – comedian and actor Daniel Sloss puts an altogether hilarious spin on inter-relational problems.
Daniel Sloss's comedy engages, offends and makes people uncomfortable, and it is utterly hilarious - all at the same time. In this book, Sloss lays out his views on just about every conceivable kind of relationship between two people - with lovers, ex-lovers, ex-lovers who you hate, ex-lovers who hate you, parents, best friends (male and female), not-best friends, children, and siblings - and even with countries ('Countries are People Too, Just Bigger and Even Worse' is a stand out chapter on Scotland and England, and why the author is definitely NOT English).
Every relationship gets the full, inimitable Sloss treatment as he explains why each one is fragile and ridiculous and awful - but, just maybe, also valuable and meaningful. In any case, one way or the other, under his pen they are all hilarious.

'This is the Pandora's Box of self-help books.' - Conan O'Brien
'What a book. Smart, acerbic, and incredibly funny. I suggest you read it.' - Bob Saget
'The only thing wrong with this book is that at my age everyone I hate is already dead.' - Peter Bart
'Everyone You Hate... turns out to be a very enjoyable read, unsurprisingly. Written in the rhythm of a seasoned comedian's set, there are laughs liberally sprinkled, serious bits with elements of self-examination, and the impression that each carefully placed word has simply come to him in conversation. Just like any good Edinburgh show.' - Vicky Nangle, Beyond The Joke
'Sloss offers insights on toxic masculinity, gender and sexuality that are at once deliciously dark, hilarious and profound.' - Debbie Hall, Daily Record
