    Story
    "Waffle, heaped upon endless waffle"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Nobody. I really mean this.


    Has Politics: A Very Short Introduction put you off other books in this genre?

    Not at all. Ben Dupre does one called 50 ideas. It is lovely :-)


    What aspect of Eric Martin’s performance might you have changed?

    You cannot blame the messenger. The author is the flaw.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No, none whatsover.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened for a long time, waiting to learn something. I didn't.

    Eventually I picked out chapters of interest. It was just endless words, without ever actually saying anything.

    I really am appalled and will happily look the author in the eye and tell him to get a job. I am slightly annoyed that I paid to have this chancer waste my leisure time.

    "A very basic, yet thought provoking introduction"

    It is a good introduction to politics as a whole and it is very thought provoking. I got through it in 2 sittings.
