Bernard Levin was a British journalist and broadcaster who estimated that his published works comprised some 17 million words. He was for many years a columnist with The Times and Enough Said is the ninth and last collection of selected essays from his column there, covering the years 1995 to 1997. The onset of Alzheimer's forced him to lay down his pen. Over the years I have read all nine collections.
His topics were various, some serious, some less so, all written in precise prose. Some are less relevant then they were at the time e.g. how to treat aging Nazis (Levin, a non-practicing Jew, felt that, with the passage of time, we should `Leave them to God'), some are forward looking e.g. `Internet - boon or ruin?'
Others are more timeless such as those dealing with youth violence, dishonest bankers and - remember this is pre 9/11 - Islamic fundamentalism. The essay `Taleban meets Caliban' contains the sentence, "The fighting in Afghanistan has been long and bloody, nor is it settled for now." I fear that sentence will not become less relevant for a long time to come.

If you are thinking about picking up an actual physical volume in an actual physical (second-hand) bookshop I suggest you look at the index to see if the topics interest you. Levin was a great champion of good indexes. Would that there more like him in that regard.
