Publisher's Summary

Politics has changed. Five years ago Britain had a coalition government built on compromise. Now the Conservatives rule unchallenged, a chasm has opened up between Left and Right and the centre ground is deserted.
Nick Clegg knows the volatile state of modern politics better than anyone else. Here he offers a frank and honest account of his experiences - from his spectacular rise in the 2010 election through his tumultuous years as Deputy Prime Minister to a brutal defeat in 2015 - in order to tell the inside story of this change and reflect on what it means for our future.
He writes candidly about his own mistakes - including the controversy around tuition fees - the tense standoffs within government and the sometimes bizarre challenges he faced. He lifts the lid on the arcane world of Westminster, offering startling insights into the hidden workings of government, and reflects deeply on the decision to enter coalition with the Conservatives.
In a rapidly and profoundly changing world, he argues that the long-term survival of progressive politics relies more than ever on the radical reform of our outdated political system. Whatever your political persuasion, if you wish to understand how Britain is run today you cannot afford to ignore this audiobook.

An essay to liberals

More of a 3.5 starts... Listened to this on my commute - some interesting insights into the coalition and Nick Clegg's hindsight and vision. The middle got a bit stale and repetitive (felt almost whiney) - if short on time maybe just read/listen to the first chapter and last two!
However, if interested in politics I recommend to give it a go - it's worth the air time

A loss to British politics.

An amazing book. Nick Clegg comes across as intelligent, honest and humble. There is no sour grapes about how he and his party were treated in the 2015 election; instead an honest account of what happened and why.

Excellent

A very interesting insight into modern politics.
The system could be so much better but I can see now why progress is so slow.
Nick Clegg is a good man, I wish him all the best in the future.
