Book Review by David Shirreff: Perhaps this book should be called The Theory of Everything, though that title has already been used for a movie about Stephen Hawking, the theoretical physicist and expert on black holes. William Davies is in good company then, but his fascinating book does not quite manage to present the reader with a Grand Unified Theory of the human condition. At the end of “Nervous States” this reader was still looking for a logic that knits all the brilliant observations together. The starting thesis is an arresting one: that almost every aspect of life has shifted to a state of war.
