British Actor Michael Fenton Stevens gets cheeky with his performances of this smorgasbord of British and international politicians, entertainers, writers, sports stars, and royalty. Any news junky looking for a break will find this audiobook a pleasantly irreverent spin on politics and pop culture.
Rifkind's victims are as diverse and as headline-grabbing as David Cameron, Beyoncé, Oprah Winfrey, Edwina Currie, Barack Obama and Pippa Middleton. This book collects the very best of this incredibly popular column, introduced and linked in a way that adds zest and background to the entries.

Well performed, surprised me
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would , especially someone who enjoys the (non)characters in politics. It's not my scene but I got swept up in the performance, the perceptive ability of the writer and his ability to turn what he perceives into something odd and imaginative. The only other thing I can think of with the same feel is spitting image. This feels like chilled -reading on the train back from a city job -spitting image.
Any additional comments?
After initially getting disappointed it was boring old prime minister stuff, I enjoyed it.

My Week is my nightly pleasure
I love this book; I frequently put it on the timer so that I can fall asleep to it, with a smile on my face.
I would recommend this to everyone: it really helps me unwind.
