Book Description

10 Nov 2011
In an age of colourless bureaucrats, Nigel Farage is a politician who is impossible to ignore, provoking controversy and admiration in equal measure. A fun-loving iconoclast whose motto is work hard and play harder, Farage's charismatic leadership and determination to battle the forces of anti-libertarianism have made him a Robin Hood figure to many, and propelled his party, UKIP, into a position of real power in the country. Never one for a quiet life, this paperback edition includes the story of Nigel's extraordinary escape from death in a plane crash on the eve of the 2010 general election (the light aircraft he was flying in got caught up in a UKIP banner it was towing and crashed shortly after take-off, badly injuring Farage and his pilot), his recovery and return to the leadership of UKIP in November 2010. Featuring sometimes hilarious and often terrifying encounters with a stellar supporting cast, including Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Nicolas Sarkozy, José Manuel Barroso, and UKIP's short-lived, silver-gilt masco, Robert Kilroy-Silk and told with Farage's customary wit and humour, Flying Free is a candid, colourful life story by a fascinating and controversial character. It also shows that one fearless, determined individual can still make a difference. NOTE :Flying Free is just an updated version of *Fighting Bull.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different view for a different Europe 23 Jan 2012
A really nice autobiography of UKIP's leader Nigel Farage. As usual Farage is funny, smart and logical. Maybe in the future he'll be a first star in the UK politics...maybe not... In my opinion he's the only one tuned with people's view.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring. 29 July 2012
By spenna
I recently went along to a UKIP public-meeting featuring Nigel Farage as guest speaker. I arrived not knowing fully what to expect; I left truly inspired by the man's enthusiasm, honesty, and patriotism, and also a signed copy of this book, which I devoured with relish in a couple of days.

A politician who has also lived and worked in the 'real world' outside of politics, gives an honest account of his early life, what got him into his current role fighting the undemocratic EU, and where he wants to take UKIP and the UK in the future. Inspiring - a rare ability amongst today's clone-like career politicians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling read 16 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nigel Farage is undoubtedly a like or loathe type of character. The brief time he gets on television - usually on some BBC politics show where the broadcaster delights in promoting its pro-federalist agenda - fails to afford him much more than sound bites.

I attended a speech he gave in Newcastle recently where he spoke eloquently and humorously for an hour and a half with no notes. That speech, and this book, provides a much greater insight not only to the man but also his cause; anyone who believes in democracy and the right of the people to decide for themselves will be horrified by the accounts of fraud, bullying and deceit perpetuated by the unelected, unaccountable EU.

Funny and shocking, a compelling read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Evil Empire 28 Nov 2013
By J. Hill
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An insiders expose of the evil, corrupt and wasteful workings of the EU. I fear Mr Farage is preaching to the converted here, as the reviews and comments show. There is so much apathy surrounding politics I doubt if UKIP will ever make any serious inroads into the problem, but I wish him well and will probably join UKIP before the next European elections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly one of the best books I have ever read 20 Dec 2011
By Epona
I love this man!! Already being well aware of the wasteful and corrupt nature of the EU I was not overly shocked by the content of this book, but did find it hugely entertaining and inspiring. Entertaining because Nigel's unique stamp of honesty and wit are weaved throughout, and inspired because of the lengths he (and UKIP in general) have gone to in order to expose the EU as the circus it is.

Nigel is an extraordinarily bold, magnetic character who is not afraid to admit his vices - this promotes a sense of trust and confidence in him - which is SUCH A RARITY within politics at this time. This book also challenged me to consider my own weaknesses in judging others or expecting them to fit into my preconceived ideas about how one should behave or be. Thank you Nigel for allowing me to reassess my own attitude once again and also for everything you are doing to capture an audience that is crying out for freedom and true democracy within our country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flying Free Nigel Farage 6 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book, specially for some of you who have no previuos experience in politics, the high's and low's of one man on a crusade to fight for this country, in the best way he believes, knowing others may have different directions. Often when you are in the thick of it, you have to rely on others to work side by side with you. Remember this is how Nigel Farage sees himself and his perception on the people he meets and works with. You will read the relationship he has with individuals and certainly gives you the tools to understand what you are letting yourself into if you have any interest in politics. UKIP is a party you need to keep an eye on, where others have laughed and smeared at UKIP, the party still keeps on pushing forward, and is now making seriuos impacted on the alternative view in politics. It is not just those at the top, it's also the loyal grassroot members that have kept it growing, that's what the other political parties desperately want. I recommend this book and certainly recommend you watch what happens to this party in the future and it's key members.
