Britain's departure from the European Union is riddled with myth and misinformation - yet the risks are very real.
Brexit could diminish the UK's power, throw its legal system into turmoil, and lower the standard of living of 65m citizens.
In this revised edition of his bestselling paperback, Ian Dunt explains why leaving the world's largest trading bloc will make Britain poorer, leave key industries like finance and pharma struggling to operate, and could even lead to the break up of the UK.
Based on extensive interviews with trade and legal experts, Brexit: What the Hell Happens Now? is a searching exploration of Brexit, shorn of the wishful thinking of its supporters in the British media and Parliament.
IAN DUNT is a political journalist and commentator. He is editor of Politics.co.uk, has a strong social media following, and appears on the BBC, Sky and LBC.
Admirably brief and necessarily brutal... Whatever your position during the referendum, you ought to read Dunt because he is willing to face uncomfortable facts. Highly recommended.
- Nick Cohen, The Spectator
Compact and easily digestible. I'd encourage anyone who is confused, fascinated or frustrated by Brexit to read this book - you'll be far wiser by the end of it.
- Caroline Lucas, Co-Leader, Green Party
I would strongly recommend Ian Dunt's excellent guide. Dunt has taken the extraordinary step of asking a set of experts what they think. I learnt a lot.
- Philip Collins, Prospect
Your blunt guide to Brexit. In this fully revised edition of his bestseller, journalist Ian Dunt reveals how leaving the EU risks causing havoc to British law, politics and business.
Based on expert advice, it illuminates the UK's biggest issue, stripped of the spin of its cheerleaders in the British media and Parliament.
Ian Dunt is editor of politics.co.uk. He specialises in issues around immigration, civil liberties and social justice and appears as a pundit on BBC TV, Sky News and Al-Jazeera.
Brexit: What the Hell Happens Now? is his first book. He said: 'I wanted to write a book which could be read in a few hours, but allow someone to win arguments about Brexit for the next decade.'
Unlike other books about Brexit which look back at the EU referendum campaign, What the Hell Happens Now? looks ahead to the impact of leaving the EU on the EU.
