Format: Paperback
For many years and over many editions the Robert Waller and Byron Criddle Almanac of British Politics was the essential guide to Britain's constituencies. For 2015, however, Robert Waller has teamed up with Iain Dale and colleagues (who have done their own previous guides) to produce a comprehensive combined effort: The Politicos Guide to the 2015 General Election, edited by Iain Dale, Greg Callus, Daniel Hamilton and Robert Waller.

Its 451 pages are heavy on tables, statistics and lists collated from (and credited to) many of the best experts in British psephology.

The choice of chapter authors is good, including Mark Wallace, Paul Richards, Caron Lindsay respectively covering the Tories, Labour and Lib Dems in chapters that are sympathetic to their own parties but not uncritical. However, Paul Richards's picture of Labour's team is so united as to be implausible and he oscillates between presenting all as good and happy with the Labour campaign team and pointing to poll figures, especially for Miliband, which are anything but.

Gawain Towler covers Ukip and has much the least interesting chapter of the quartet as it's all written in super-100%-loyalist mode, perhaps inevitably given his press job for the party, but still disappointing as it's an account that gives no time to Ukip's problems like the ditching of several candidates and rewriting of several policies.

The other chapters are generally of a high standard, though Joey Jones's one on the TV debates is surprisingly insular. Despite only having one previous Westminster general election with TV debates to draw on for experience, he sticks to looking at that rather than also pulling in experience from previous Welsh, Scottish and London televised election debates.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A series of articles on the upcoming election covering the policies and campaign of each party (written by an insider), the candidates, the bye-elections, polling, media, marginal seats, campaigning, and a round up region by (European Parliament) region of the seats. Since elections are now a form of racing this is as near a form book as the old Waller & Criddle Almanacs (without being quite as chunky).

If you are looking for a book on the 2015 general election, YOU must buy this book. It is a brilliant book with so much detail in - basically the politics version of the Sky Sports Football Yearbook. For me as an A-level Politics student, I find this book really fascinating and awesome for politics enthusiasts like me - so I would really recommend this book.
