Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for PRETTY STRAIGHT GUYS by Nick Cohen. reviews:

“FIVE STARS!!! This is the best book I've read all year. Nick Cohen pulls no punches and is highly critical of the hypocricy of many politicians, journalists and businessmen. There’s plenty of ranting, but backed up by detail. Ever wondered what the Enron scandal was all about? Nick Cohen explains all in easy to read English. Have you wondered why asylum seekers suddenly became the hate figures of the lowest common denominator press? Look no further. There's also a bit about how we've been duped about crime by Tony's new rightwing Labour Party. Nick Cohen's ire isn't reserved for the political right. This is a well written and excellently researched book. I urge everyone who plans to vote in the next general election to read it. Though who you'll vote for is a mystery to me.”

“Nick Cohen is an intelligent left-winger. This book is a powerful critique of the New Labour government from that perspective. (The title "Pretty Straight Guys" is an ironic reference to Tony Blair's description of himself the first time he was caught bang to rights doing something seriously unethical.) As someone who thinks of myself as centre right, I was surprised both by how often I agreed with Nick Cohen's criticisms, and by the number of issues on which this book convinced me that our nominally socialist government is actually well to the right of me.”
