About: Peter York: How to Become a Nicer Type of Person

Peter York: How to Become a Nicer Type of Person
Directed by Tim Fountain

In which Peter York, co-inventor of the Sloane Ranger, author of Authenticity is a Con and recovering style guru, introduces his dark, edgy and deeply subversive idea of niceness. York's guide to life explains what to wear, what to say and what to think. He deals with sports-derived clothing (just say no), forbidden words ('authentic', 'passionate', 'vibrant', 'creative', 'transparent', 'journey') and advises you never to engage in 'mindfulness', 'multiculturalism', 'minimalism' or 'monetarism'.

Thinking these thoughts is scientifically proven to cause brain damage as he will prove in this Edinburgh Preview before the show goes to Assembly George Square, from 17-31 August.

Peter York is an author / journalist / broadcaster and a management consultant – a Capitalist Tool. The subject of social groupings and market segments is his major preoccupation. He co-authored (with Ann Barr) the global bestseller The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook’ and has since charted the fortunes of many elite groupings from designers (‘chic-graphique’) to Television Types. Over the last 30 years he has produced a flood of articles, initially in Harpers & Queen and thereafter in broadsheets, particularly The Independent, and 11 books. He has also contributed to television programmes from The Tube to Newsnight and made two series of his own, one on style and one on The 80s plus a number of single ‘authored’ documentaries, including The Rise and Fall of The Adman, all for BBC2. He is a Visiting Professor at the University of the Arts London, attached to the London College of Fashion, and a former Board Trustee of the Prince of Wales’ charity Arts & Business and of the Tate Members’ Council.
