1.0 out of 5 stars The worst book I ever read, 3 Aug. 2007
By 
This review is from: Ralph Glasser Omnibus: Growing Up in the Gorbals; Gorbals Boy at Oxford; Gorbals Voices, Siren Songs (Paperback)
I can't decide what I disliked most about this book. Whether the haughtiness of the author, his racist attitude, his egotism and selfishness, his narrow-mindedness or his total lack of sensitivity.
I don't think I have read anything worse in my life. This book has not enriched me in any way, have not left me with the wish of knowing more about its facts.
It only expresses the angry bitterness of the author who does not even try to look at things from a different view point but uses the book as a means for conveying his godsend opinions in a monologue where he wants to crash other people's actions and reasons and glorify his own. He dedicates most of the pages trying to show off his amateur skills, his conquests, his "exceptional" brains, playing at the same time the badly hidden role of the false humble man. Highly non-recommended...
