Thomas Erikson

Author of Bestseller "Surrounded by Idiots"
Have you ever tried to argue with your partner, and nothing went as you planned? Or, in confusion, left a meeting with the feeling that you did not understand anyone the room? And have you noticed that some people never seem to hear what you say – no matter how explicit you are?

​​​​​​​Sometimes it seems impossible to be thoroughly understood, and some people seem almost to misunderstand you on purpose.

We are pleased to present Thomas Erikson – the author of the bestseller, Surrounded by Idiots that has sold over 1 million samples.
