Uncovers the darker side of Political, Banking, Civil Service and Businessmen,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wasters (Paperback)
I enjoyed reading the book, but it must be noted that as it was co-written by Shane Ross and Nick Webb, the former an insider and therefore also both has tainted hands and possibly a political agenda as to what he is willing to expose, at least has the honesty to expose issues that others in the "Political classes" would rather deny.
The book is well written, although it is designed to infuriate whilst informing, so may be regarded as a populist publication rather than a truly impartial analysis.
The book does a good job of exposing the massive waste and corruption that is seen as the norm within the self-proclaimed "upper echelons" of the political, banking, civil service and business worlds.
Being a self-confessed "grumpy old man" this book pushed the appropriate buttons of outrage, indignation and disgust whilst also providing information that was perceptive and informative.
I was tempted to give it a three-star review due to its populist nature, but am willing to accept that it makes no pretensions of being anything else but populist!
