Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I already have! Ken Clarke's narration adds to the insight of his experiences across many years in parliament. Although I don't always agree with him politically, I felt a better understanding of the reasoning behind some decisions. Brexit makes this even more relevant.
What did you like best about this story?
How different ministries work and the trade unions associated with them. How politics and politicians roles have changed, also the rise of the right/media changes.
What does Ken Clarke bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I like his voice, but also he's able to stress things that's made it seem more personal. I can understand why he'd make a good companion.
Any additional comments?
Puts context into the actions of some post Brexit and yet despite it being a book about government in the main, I found it a very easy and enjoyable listen.

Very much enjoyed listening to one of the great political actors of the past 40 years, someone with genuine experience and am very pleased Ken narrated his own book. The book itself had touching moments, while the heavy detail of policy was left out there were some dry segments but it was an all round positive account of his life and time in public office. On occasion felt left wanting more.
