Reviews

The Financial Times

Emmanuelle Smith

His apparent lack of allegiance and faux naivety mean those who Flintoff interviews on his quest for meaning are inclined to trust him, which produces some compelling passages. For Flintoff, though, enlightenment comes neither through religion nor political affiliation – but in making clothes... What starts as a somewhat nebulous amalgam of theories becomes an inspiring eulogy to DIY.
