Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A book which inspires the reader to review their own best intentions and seek to develop solutions which enable people to make real choices about their lives. Chartering a minefield of political niceties, Dr Manion writes in a way that is both dynamic and simplistic. It is a book with a foot planted firmly in the worlds of academia and reality, offering a challenge to embrace that which he has already proven. Whether you agree with the author or not, this is good read and a great philosophy from one of our most exciting housing professionals.

A bit of a vanity publication I think.

Not as good or as truly academic as it thinks it is.
