1.0 out of 5 stars Not a complete waste of time, 12 Jan 2013
From the Daily Mail "Attention to political truth" school of thought this book is crammed full of half truths, non truths and bland statements that purport to be true. However, it does show the mind of the right wing thinker warts and all.

Descriptions of the Left wing were funny cartoon images of the right's impression of the Left but has little to do with reality. I shall cherish this book as it reflects my own view of the Right from my personal perspective. As we all know anything that underlines your own bias must be good. That is precisely where this book hits the mark with the Right. However it is also a useful read for the Left.

For the Right it justifies all pre-conceived impressions and underlines Right wing biased view of the world making them feel secure and cosy away from the harshness of reality. It is full of simplistic solutions to complex issues normally labeled incorrectly as "common sense"

For the Left it demonstrates the illogical thinking and weird kind of twisted logic that has to be overcome in debate with the Right. It should therefore be an essential read for all Left wing political activists.

As a tool for clear political thought and reasoned argument this book is not it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great starter for 10 when looking for a new career, 26 April 2008
In 38 years I have had 16 jobs and 5 career paths trying to find something I liked. (sacked and won my tribunal once and redundant once) This book was great for three things.

1. Makes you really think about what you want to be when you grow up.
2. Focuses your attention on where you are going
3. Does not try to say it has the answers but puts the responsibility clearly on your shoulders where it belongs.

If you are looking for an easy way to find a job then don't buy the book. If you are looking for a real, practical guide to improving your life then buy it, get into the spirit of it and work at it.

No book has all the answers, you do, this book just makes you realise it.
