Not Quite World's End | [John Simpson]

Not Quite World's End

In Not Quite World's End, John Simpson looks at the world's troubles, the Middle East, global warming, population explosion, and takes the perhaps surprising view that it's actually not nor will be the end of the world. His vivid prose, his clear-sightedness, and the wonderful anecdotes about the many strange people and places he has come across all add up to a richly satisfying read.

Publisher's Summary

John Simpson, in the vein of his best-selling A Mad World, My Masters, offers a lively and upbeat look at the challenges and the changes the world has gone through in his life and long career.

In it, he looks at the world's troubles - the Middle East, global warming, the population explosion - and takes the perhaps surprising view that it's actually not, nor will be, the end of the world. His vivid prose, his clear-sightedness, and the wonderful anecdotes about the many strange people and places he has come across all add up to a richly satisfying read. And with his long experience and his remarkable ability to explain what's really going on out there, he offers us all a crumb of comfort in desperate times.

    "A wonderful listen"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. It is all the better for being read by the author and if, like me, you enjoy news and current affairs you will find this book a fascinating insight into world events over the last decade.

    It is also peppered with some very personal insights and John shares with us the journey he has taken with his newborn sun. Heartwarming, funny, thought provoking and sad I can recommend this book to anyone who has reached their middle years and feels gloom is all around us! Hear what he has to say about the Beeb and you will soon realise that we must never lose this national institution.

    I will look forward to more from this author.

    "SIMPSON AT HIS VARIED BEST"

    If you like John Simpson, as indeed I do, this is one not to miss.

    I have listened to most of his audiobooks, and this must rank among the best. Here we have the author in a very contemplative mood, covering a whole variety of episodes in his life, all of which are incisive, interesting and entertaining. If you add to this his excellent diction, I don't think you could want for more. 4+ hours of very rewarding listening.

    "simpson"

    I have listened to all John Simpsons books, and find them a shere
    delight. His attention to minor detail along with his very british tone make for very easy and informative listining.
    He must have some more stories in him, so if you read this John,get writting, love your work.

    Andy, Ireland.
