Customer Review

on 29 August 2006
Bought the book after reading Mr Mulgan's writing in Prospect Magazine [which you should be reading also]. The review in Prospect made it sound a bit flash, with lots of historical references. Actually it's very down to earth and realistic, and I wasn't left feeling like I was on the outside of someone else's conversation. It's unlikely I'll ever read all the PPE texts he refers to but they are quoted inline and it flows fine. This is a serious and thoughful book without being pretentious or exclusive, and I enjoyed it. I have to say I really struggled to reconcile the depth, and balance of the discussion in the book with the CV I read on the inside flap, although I can imagine that in the heat of political battle in Number 10 he heard the words "Yes Geoff but what shall we actually do then?" more than once.
