Review:

A brilliantly researched journey, capturing the gun's strangely accepted place in human life and, far too often, death -- Jon Snow A gripping book that's as disturbing as it is enlightening -- Charlie Burton * GQ * A shocking investigation into our fatal love affair with the firearm * Newsweek * Adventurous, ambitiously tracing the often devastating impact of guns around the world ... punctuated with thoughtful discussions on issues such as the second amendment to the US constitution, and women's attitudes towards guns, and contains moments of great poignancy * Financial Times * Chilling ... relentlessly engrossing * Spectator * A shocking book about the terrible realities of war and weapons * Scotland's Sunday Mail * Often dispassionate and aims at nuance, its central conclusion - that we live in a world awash with guns, the consequences of which are largely bleak - is well embedded from the start ... Overton has a journalist's eye for blending anecdote and statistics in service of a broader narrative. Gun Baby Gun covers a great deal of ground, touching on Salvadoran gang violence, Israel's settlements in theWest Bank and the American gun lobby. Its scope is admirable * The Skinny * An outstanding achievement * Crime Novel Reader * A thoroughly good book * Bookmunch *
