Stay away! This is a comic made to look like a book!,
This review is from: The EU in a Nutshell: Everything you wanted to know about the European Union but didn't know who to ask (Hardcover)
I borrowed this book from the local library in the belief that it would give an unbiased overview of how the EU works. How wrong was I! This book is just a disjointed hotch-potch of facts, figures, tables and lists with no readable narrative at all. Every chapter looks much like another, featuring many bullet points, which are rendered as stars, probably to equate them with the stars on the EU flag. The author must have thought he was commissioned to write one of those stocking fillers like 101 Uses for a Dead Cat. This book is utterly pointless. You could spend weeks trying to piece together some semblance of a common thread, but you'd be better off looking for other books on the subject. My recommendation: Stay well away!
