Hashi Mohamed powerfully exposes the alienating and segregating effect of social immobility in this country. Beautifully written, People Like Us makes a deeply personal case for a world in which anybody can reach success, but doesn't have to leave a part of themselves behind to achieve it. (David Lammy)

A vital work of courage and hope, by a truly remarkable individual. (Philippe Sands)

Mohamed's is an impressive tale, but he turns it into something much larger and far more resonant in his finely written memoir ... a rather ambitious and far-ranging attempt to rethink the whole stalled project of social mobility. A careful and affecting study of personal struggle, social mobility and international migration that brings a fresh and well-informed voice to the debate. (Observer)

This rags-to-riches tale is related with humility and humour. (The Times)

He is an unconventional figure, and a key strength of his book is his refreshing willingness to address controversial issues with candour. (Sunday Times)

One man's story of social mobility and inequality - and a searching analysis of what needs to change
