MEP and award-winning political writer Daniel Hannan argues for a British exit ahead of the coming referendum.
Hannan demonstrates that the EU is past its sell-by date, rendered obsolete by technological advances, shrinking economically and less relevant to our economic needs than ever. Worse than that, he shows that the EU can't reform, can't be democratic and can't be divorced from its goal of ever-closer political union. Staying in does not mean staying the same, and a vote to leave - far from being the risky choice - is actually the safe one.
Finally, Hannan argues that Britain doesn't have to stay in the EU to remain at the heart of Europe and considers the global role a confident nation freed from EU strictures could play.
Daniel Hannan has been Conservative MEP for South East England since 1999. He writes frequently for the Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, Guardian, CapX, and Washington Examiner. He is the author of the award-winning How We Invented Freedom & Why It Matters.

"Confused about the EU referendum? In the dark about which way to vote? Daniel Hannan's invaluable vade mecum will illuminate the whole question showing why voting to leave is a leap back into the light." (Boris Johnson)
"Before voting in this historic referendum you should read this brilliant book. If you've decided to vote Leave this will enthuse you if you're not yet sure it will convince you." (Michael Gove)
"A must read for anyone who is surprised that so many of us now want to leave the EU." (Lord Owen)
"I defy anyone who is undecided on the EU to read this book and not be a convinced Leaver." (Kate Hoey)
"The perfect book for someone who wants to hear a calm clear set of reasons for leaving the EU." (Baroness Jones)
"Powerful intelligent hard-hitting well-written...absolutely required reading for every Briton who is considering voting on 23 June." (Andrew Roberts)
For me it is. I prefer to listen especially when the narrator, the author, is such a great orator.
I'm a very auditory person - I learn best from listening - and Daniel Hannan has perfect delivery of his own work.
Those who voted to Remain in the EU are now brandishing all Leave voters as the "Uneducated Masses" and "Racists" Some now even call themselves the 'illuminati' and believe that the right to vote should only be given to citizens who reach a higher level of education. (presumably only those who think as they do!) I have even been told by a few that I think I am better than everyone else, having voted to Leave, and that they are ashamed to be associated with me! . Can they not hear themselves?
If you are looking for clarity as to what the heck is going on instead of gullibly believing a very biased or ill informed press, (at least here in the USA) read this book. You will see for yourself why some very educated people also voted to Leave!!
Having read this book, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a new referendum. And I only pray that Daniel Hannan won't give up the good fight. God help us.
Extremely well structured presentation of the facts
Good combination of history lesson and current day geo politics
He reads it himself which I always like when authors take the time to do
Cry! At how crazy the EU has become!
Everyone who is planning to vote to remain in the EU should read this book. I am pro-Europe and I thought that I was therefore automatically pro-EU. I now realise that I was wrong, the two things are very, very different, and I will be voting to leave the EU in June.
"Revealing the doomed EU project."
A must read for truth seekers. For people that believe in British identity and want to understand the misguided nature of the European Union project. Highly informative and well read.
"informative, well narrated."
a good intelligible listen, Daniel is a superb narrated and the content informative and honest in stating what the book is and what it is not.
"Good arguments from a sound mind."
Well written and narrated. I listened to this before the referendum, though I had already made up my mind. However the arguments are solid and sound. As it happens we have now voted to leave and raise our eyes to a broader horizon.
"Even after the vote... "
it's worth a listen. He covers the entire subject of the EU and Brexit and sets out in a factual, reasoned way why we should vote out and what should be done post Brexit. There would be a lot loss fear now if people had listened to this. And the narration by Hannan? Eloquent. A fine orator
"Calm, factual, revealing, thought provoking"
A must read for anyone worrying about the yes vote we have just witnessed in UK
"Well argued case for Brexit"
As someone intending to vote to remain I listened to this book in order to hear an intelligent presentation of the other side of the argument (since the television confrontational debates are doing such a poor job of this). I found the book enlightening and well worth listening to. It may even have swayed my vote.
"One book that everyone in Britain should read."
This book entertainingly and brilliantly sets out an unassailable case for leaving the European Union. A definite "must read" right now before the referendum. I challenge anyone to vote to stay after reading what Daniel Hannan has to say.
"Encourages Voters to look at bigger picture"
... Not just next few years. Desire to cooperate and be friendly with neighbours does not necessarily mean 'Remain'.
definitely worth listening to before the referendum. highlights the most important point about the EU which is that it's heading towards political union and federalism.
