Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is one of a series, covering also Labour, Conservatives, SNP, Plaid and the Greens. All the others are single person authored books (with the exception of a more general "Why Vote?" book), with chapter titles that give a list of long and worthy policy areas. They are souped up, lengthened policy manifestos. That sort of book certainly has its place but it is very good to see that the 2010 Liberal Democrat one takes a different tact.

Danny Alexander may be the main name on it, but he is the editor - and the book is a collection of twenty-six short essays plus a foreword from Nick Clegg. Many of the authors are also people who, in their different ways, are well known and respected with particular audiences outside the ranks of party membership and helpers.

Floella Benjamin and Colin Firth probably have the most public star value, but contributions from people such as the former Director of Public Prosecutions, Sir Ken Macdonald, friend of Stephen Lawrence (and now Lib Dem councillor) Duwayne Brooks and Janis Sharpe, mother of Gary McKinnon, all have appeal to particular audiences and add up to a welcome picture of a party drawing broad support from people who know what they are talking about.

Danny Alexander and the team have put together a book that is more varied and interesting therefore than the other party titles in the series and deserve congratulations for that.

Nick Clegg's foreword starts with addressing the question, "What is Liberalism?" Not surprisingly freedom and fairness features in his answer, but he also captures that essential contrarian mindset which means, for all the changes in policy and society, one can easily imagine Charles James Fox being a member of the party even now, over 200 years after he was its leader.

I enjoy a wellknown person who puts the fact that he is a celebrity to use and makes a stand on important political issues. Worth Reading !

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mr. R. Simpson on 27 April 2010
Format: Paperback
This book raises many issues for which the Lib Dem party has solutions. It is written by a cross section of supporters, not just career politicians. I can highly commend it. It would be very useful to anyone wondering who to vote for at the current general election but also to let them know more about Lib Dem philosophies and principles at any time.
