Election Notebook: The Inside Story Of The Battle Over Britain's Future And My Personal Battle To Report It
Election Notebook: The Inside Story Of The Battle Over Britain's Future And My Personal Battle To Report It
by Nick Robinson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.60

3.0 out of 5 stars An Election Story but not really the Inside Story, 12 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a readable and interesting reminder of the run up to the 2015 UK election. However so much of what Robinson discusses with leading politicians is "off the record" and the absence of these inputs is a significant loss to the book. It tells us some of the story but far from all and therefore the suggestion that this is the Inside story is wide of the mark.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another thin and rather short welly, 6 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These boots are a disappointment and not nearly as robust as I expected and wanted. Buying again, I would opt for the inexpensive and unbranded boots as they are of a similar quality as these.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still rolling..., 8 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used extensively on flights it has stood up to the usual wear and tear, fitted in the overhead lockers and got past the ground staff police with ease. I will buy another when it breaks, as inevitably these cases do.

4.0 out of 5 stars A political must read, 3 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Do not be put off by the first 50 pages which are setting the scene. Thereafter I found it difficult to put this book down. It should become mandatory reading for any politician seeking to influence our foreign and defence policy.


Henry Cecil: Trainer of Genius
Henry Cecil: Trainer of Genius
Price: £5.63

4.0 out of 5 stars Cecil:Warts and all, 30 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thank goodness Brough Scott had the courage to tell the full Cecil story although my guess is that the Newmarket trainer's opposition caused him to leave some pieces out of the book.
It is a book that is probably only of interest to those interested in flat racing in Britain.

4.0 out of 5 stars China essential, 30 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an essential prerequisite for any trip to China. It is small, robust and effective - and much cheaper than going to a specialist travel shop

3.0 out of 5 stars Too many straps, 28 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is all a bit fiddly and I sense that before long something will break. However for its price it is a reasonable choice for a small day sack.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Crap, 30 April 2010
This review is from: Crap MPs (Hardcover)
This little book is an enjoyable read with an interesting collection of those MPs over the years who have been utterly incompetent or ridiculously corrupt. It must have been a difficult choice to make the selection of the 40 written about in this booklet. Do not expect long essays; this is a little book that can be dipped into when you have a moment - perhaps on the loo.

5.0 out of 5 stars The case for an exit strategy, 5 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Butcher and Bolt (Paperback)
This book is an excellent read. It is well written, easy to understand and very persuasive in its case that no foreign power has succeeded in Afghanistan in the last 200 years.
Anyone who seeks to understand the current dilemma over the policy in Afghanistan must read this book.
