Oliver James is a clinical psychologist, writer and television documentary producer. After a 2.2 degree from Cambridge University and completing his training as a clinical psychologist he worked in the Cassel mental hospital.

Both noted and controversial, James is a critic of evolutionary perspectives on psychology, and of what he perceives to be the conventional psychiatric approach to schizophrenia. He has written on the subject of the problematic relationship between wealth and happiness, which is the subject of his most recent book, Affluenza - How to be Middle Class, Successful and Fulfilled.

Some critics have opposed James's willingness to discuss the mental health of celebrities and politicians.[1].
