"What do you want to read that for?", said my other half, "Farage is a twit!"
Well, some of this book may be light-hearted, but most of it is spot-on on our current problems and is especially good on our constitution and common law, on which topic most of our MPs seem woefully ignorant. Farage has the rare knack of being able to put his finger on exactly what is going on amidst all the Euro-obfuscation and what we should do about it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading his story and finished by asking my other half, "Can you point to anything he says that isn't accurate, then?" And he couldn't.
This book is quite serious. It deals with how, and by whom, we should be governed. It sums up a lot of the unease many feel as we seem to lurch further into a European dictatorship run by a Franco-German engine ("a French rider on a German horse"), which thinks nation states are evil and should cease to exist. Should be read by anyone interested in where we are going as a country, and why. And, yes, it's entertaining too. The best books make serious points in an engaging way, and this certainly does that.
Farage's book poses the question: what's so wrong with wanting to govern ourselves?

Format: Hardcover
This book should be read by all, not only those interested in politics but also by those who like a good read. It is full of honesty and excitement, revealing a man driven by his beliefs, pride in his country and sense of justice. In his youth he loved his fun (still does), hard work and not a little of the pleasures of the City that went with it in the recent past. Life is for living and Nigel Farage surely displays that. His political outbursts may be outrageous to some but he sure takes the Bull by the horns. There can be few who would go the lengths of flying upside down and come a cropper to further his cause! Read to learn and enjoy-a must.

Format: Hardcover
A really well written book that was not only interesting from cover-to-cover, but hugely entertaining - it is effectively an autobiography and explanation of how UKIP came about. Farage is as candid in the book as he is on television, providing entertainment but also an honest insight into his attitude towards, particularly, life, the UK, the EU and Europe.

It did seem to end a little abruptly, but then I came to realise that Farage is (hopefully) still in the prime of his political life - I thoroughly look forward to the book he will undoubtledly write when he retires from politics.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of those books that you roar through because you are just enjoying it so much. Nigel Farage appears a real character on TV, and his personality and humour really come out in these pages. Not only does he give a frank account of the rise of UKIP, but he also lays out the tremendously wasteful habits and practises of the EU. This is not to say it is a dry read, it is laugh-out loud funny in some places. If you are interested in the anti-EU perspective, I heartily recommend this.

Format: Hardcover
I have tried to read political books before and often found them quite dry and boring but Nigel Farage writes with such enthusiasm and passion that you can't help but to turn the next page. I started reading this book in the late afternoon and by the evening I had already finished it.

Fighting Bull is such an eye opener, when you read about the money and powers we give away every day to Brussels you will be left with no doubt that it is essential we leave the EU as soon as possible.

Format: Hardcover
I have been interested in Politics since I was 11 years old and in that time I have read a number of Political memoirs but in that time I have never read one that seemed as though it was written by an actual person. His book is an account of his life before politics which gave him an experience of the real world which he believes politicians on the front bench today are lacking. He gives a detailed account of the formation of UKIP without the sugar coat pretence that it was all happy jolly smiles (there really was fierce infighting in the earlier years) which also includes the attempted Kilroy-Silk coup that never was.

There is also a lot of detail given in regards to the European Union officials and countless British politicians who have sold us down the river to line their own pockets. he talks of the corruption, the waste and the horrendous regulations which this organisation brings but stresses that although he wants to see this EU come to an end, he is not anti European. He loves Europe and the diversity of cultures and peoples Europe has. He believes in co-operation, that Britain should have friendly trade deals with other European nations but that none should have to sacrifice their own individual nationhood to do it. So if you're looking for a book that slags off the French or the Germans, keep looking.

I would advise that this book is well worth the read as its not the usual 700 pages of egotistic slobber that politicians often write. Its to the point and though with a serious message is not without its humour.

I expected to enjoy this book (if not I wouldn't have bought it). But I enjoyed it more than I expected -- and not only because Nigel Farage is an acquaintance with whom I have occasionally shared a beer. For an insight into the highways and byways of European politics, and a damning indictment of the European institutions, this is a must-read.
