'An incredibly moving experience ... Hicks's summation of life gains greater spirituality as he goes on.' Scarlett Thomas, Independent on Sunday
Bill Hicks was arguably the most influential stand-up comedian of the last 30 years. He was funny, out of hand, impossible to ignore and genuinely disturbing. His work has inspired Michael Moore, Mark Thomas and Robert Newman among others. The trade paperback published in February 2003 was the first collected work and included major stand-up routines, diary, notebook and letters extracts, plus his final writings, most previously unpublished. This smaller format paperback has extra material discovered subsequently.
A fantastic book .... His truth will make your stomach churn - there were times I was laughing at the most horrendous things. - Shazia Mirza, Observer
His words still burn with righteous truth. This book could change your life. - Paul Brannigan, Kerrang
He exhorted his audiences to do more than just laugh - he wanted them to strive to make the world a better place. - Jon Barnes, Times Literary Supplement
The title Love All the People ... isn't remotely ironic ... Hicks was, in his angry, cynical and still unsurpassably funny way, the most hopeless of romantics. - Andrew Mueller, Time Out
