"READING Diaries of a Fleet Street Fox was like watching my first episode of Dr Who – through parted fingers with my mouth wide open... I really didn’t want to see what was going to happen next, but couldn’t stop looking."

The Bluffer's Guide to Social Media is the perfect gift for someone who needs to be an expert, fast, on 21st century communication, figure out the difference between a tweet and a dweet, and find the best way to handle trolls.

The Bluffer's Guide to Journalism will help anyone survive in the most venal, duplicitous and thoroughly gratifying job on Earth. Never again confuse superheroes and superinjunctions, or a deep throat with a splash and a spread. Labour Party deputy leader and anti-phone hacking campaigner Tom Watson MP said: "Funny, irreverent and appalling at the same time. No wonder trust in journalism is so low." Piers Morgan said he "thoroughly enjoyed" it and Al Murray added: "Some of it is even funny."
