James O’Brien in conversation with Marie Le Conte: How Not to be Wrong

A unique chance to see voice of reason and award-winning LBC broadcaster James O’Brien in conversation, and put your questions to him, as he discusses his new book HOW NOT TO BE WRONG in this exclusive book launch.

James’s previous bestselling book, HOW TO BE RIGHT, explored how to make your argument heard. In his new book, James will be looking at the difficult times of how to change your mind in this deeply personal and unflinchingly honest account of how winning arguments doesn’t necessarily mean you’re right.

In HOW NOT TO BE WRONG, James examines his personal beliefs and opinions on everything from racial prejudice to showing emotions, from fat-shaming to tattoos, and digs up the real reasons behind them. In this intimate and entertaining conversation, James will discuss the process of writing the book, and the lessons he learned about himself whilst doing so, as well as discussing his career more widely. You’ll also have the chance to put your own questions to James.

James will be in conversation with political journalist, Marie Le Conte, author of Haven’t you heard…? Gossip, Power and How Politics Really Works.

Don’t miss your chance to hear from one of Britain’s most incisive, witty and necessary voices in captivating and thought-provoking conversation before you read his new book.

This event takes place on publication day for How Not To Be Wrong, so you should receive your copy of the book in the week after the event.
