L'art d'aimer Tail of the Dragon Collector's Edition: Complete Series, Books 1-10
At last I Lonestar Sanctuary have found a book worth one starIave to say it is an easy read so easy I read it in a bookshop at one brief sitting And that is its only virtue I could do a negative review but the press Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator has done that and there are some killer negative reviews on Goodreads already The chapter on Gordon of Khartoumas to be the most sanctimonious and unctuous piece of Understanding the Black Economy and Black Money in India historical writing Iave ever read Only Rees Mogg could look down from Desperate (Bad Baker Boys, his condescending glasses and tick of Strachey ase peers up from is Bloomsbury deckchair with such
*consummate arrogancethe best *
arroganceThe best approach to this book on twelve "Titans Is To To Get "is to to get a thesaurus select a word of opprobrium and copy down the first twelve wordsSo bad arrant vile base gross poor bad of its kind inferior shoddy tacky faulty execrable Nailed it A fascinating read into a generation of eroic individuals people that strove to achieve the impossible and often failed in the attempt Worth reading for anybody with an interested in a colourful period of British and world istory I found this book extremely disappointing The idea of aping the Lytton Strachey model of picking several prominent people from the Victorian period and arguing for their value and relevance is good although it as been done before eg by A N Wilson What lets this book down is a the narrow range of source material used to inform the book b the limited and unimaginative choice of subjects c the awkward prose style and d the lack of depth of analysisThe chapters on such well known and obvious subjects such as Peel Palmerston Disraeli and Gladstone are little than indifferent student essays It does not get much better when the author considers ueen Victoria and Prince Albert There is some repetition and awkward cross referencing in many of the chapters which again read like the sort of thing an A Level student would write The essay on W G Grace was very convoluted in terms of constructing a narrative from the statistical careerIn terms of subjects although I found the essays on Sleeman and Dicey informative I found myself asking whether they were really worthy to be placed in the same category as say Gladstone or even General GordonI ave a big problem with the fact that there are no women in MR REES MOGG S LIST OTHER Rees Mogg s list other the ueen erself There are several really prominent figures who surely deserve a place instead of someone like Napier For example what about either or both of the two Marys Mary Seacole and Mary Kingsley They brought a fresh and important perspective to the Victorian world view with their involvement in the care of those involved in the imperial wars and the way that they challenged assumptions about race and genderThis is miles from being an academic book If it were to work as what Truly Irresistible has been called entry levelistory then the reader needs to be properly directed to authoritative and up to date sources that enable further study This is not the case Whisper Loudly here The bibliography is very limited and does not even include the Lytton Strachey works that Mr Rees Mogg is at pains to criticiseThere are sadly a number of factual errors For example Gladstone is supposed toave fought and defeated the Boers in South Africa p283 He did not The Boers of the Transvaal defeated a British force at Majuba Hill and therefore won what is called the First Boer War in 1881 Four pages later General Gordon is given a knighthood wrong and in the essay on Gordon itself I've Been Thinking . . .: Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life he is described as the leader of a small British force fighting against all the odds in the Sudan Wrong again Gordon was besieged in Khartoum with a garrison of Egyptian and Sudanese troopsI regret being critical because I uite admire the author foris courteous and considered demeanour but this is not a good book and the cynic in me feels that if it Dragon Ball Z Cycle 2 T03 had been written by someone who is not a public figure it would neverave been published Sad This is an excellent book albeit the evidently agenda driven reviews published in The Guardian and so forth There is great flair and elouence to this book and one need not uestion its The Never-Ending Present: The Story of Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip & historical integrity as despite the falsehood laden reviews published in order to deter prospective buyers the analysis of these Twelve Titans is substantiated with evidence I doave confidence that those in this thr. They made Britain Great Now it's our turn Many associate the Victorian era with austere social attitudes and filthy factories But in this bold and provocative book Jacob Rees Mogg leading Tory MP and prominent Brexiteer takes up the story of twelve key figures to paint a very different picture of. .
Ls saying We must throw off the shackles of the EU and trade freely again with Persia Mesopotamia and Cathay SourceSuzanne Moore in a 2017 Guardian article compared Rees Mogg to Boris Johnson Nigel Farage and Donald Trump suggesting that like them e embodies the three things that many people reuire of modern politicians a veneer of authenticity an ability to cut through perceived liberal wisdom

figures are concerned it s merely delicious and arguably closer to karmaIn the week this was published only only 734 copies were sold whereas Ron Geesin s four year old very niche book Adjustable Spanners History Uses and Developments since 1970 apparently outsold it Given the amusingly execrable reviews for Rees Mogg in the broadsheet press that s probably fair The publisher WH Allen an imprint of Penguin and Waterstones a chain of booksellers were reduced to uotes about the man rather than The Sunset Warrior his book including One of the most important politicians in the country The Economist True unfortunately The best dressed man in the House of Commons The Spectator The bookie s favourite to replace the PM The SunProfessional reviewersave been less kind and amusing Consists of

So bad so boring so mind bogglingly banal that if itad been written by anybody else it would never uality Control in the Pharmaceutical Industry have been published Dominic Sandbrook in The Sunday Times Before I started the prospect of Rees Mogg in Downing Street struck me as a ridiculous idea But if this is what it takes to stopim writing another book then I think we should seriously consider paying that price Dominic Sandbrook againGR Ratings two weeks after publication are interesting though not surprising not a single 3 rating but lots of 1 and 5 from an admittedly small number of reviews Politics is tribal and that s part of the reason our nation is so divided Read this expecting it to be uite terrible I will admit I assumed it would be an excruciatingly boring read Bomb: The Race to Build--and Steal--the World's Most Dangerous Weapon (Newbery Honor Book) however I was pleasantly surprised this bookas turned an incredibly boring subject into something i was able to read for several I was able to read for several straight at a time Definitely better than expectations Thay may Oh Susannah have made Britain great but a private education didn t do the same for Jacob unfortunately outdated and offering nothing new I am surprised to see so many bad reviews below The work is certainly not worth 1 star only Iave a feeling some people are judging the Rees Mogg the politician rather than Rees Mogg the authorThis was a fairly uick read 3 days at most If you accept that the book s purpose is for Jacob Rees Mogg to tell us who from the Victorian period The Founders of Psychical Research he admires and the reason whye admires them then that s OK it is useful for telling us about Rees Mogg than the actual Victorians I disagree very much with Pelé: The King of Soccer his assessment of General Gordon though some of the cultural figures like Pugin are written about competently. Preeminent global force As we celebrate the 200th anniversary of ueen Victoria's birth and as Britain prepares to liberateerself from the European Union it is essential that we remember the spirit drive and values of the Victorians who forged modern Britain as we consider our future as a nation.
