it was amazing
bookshelves: contemporary-debate

This is a well crafted, beautifully articulate, intelligent piece of work. It opened my eyes to a completely different world and way of looking at it. Having said that, some aspects of British life resonated strongly with me but some were so alien, and I am grateful to have had my perspective widened. I felt both humbled and inspired. The author is incredibly open minded and self analytical, he's not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. I feel the reader gets an honest opinion from him, in striving for social change, that is full of integrity. He steers away from victimhood and towards personal responsibility. He does not however, believe that personal responsibility need be devoid of help and support. I do hope this incredibly insightful and important book will continue to be widely read.
