  • Crace has a secret weapon in his armoury when he tells the story of the coalition and modern politics: his imaginary accounts of conversations between the people in power. They leave you thinking: “So THAT’s how it was!” It’s a rare gift. And it’s very funny.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed this funny, informative account of the coalition. He reminds us that under every rose garden is a steaming great pile of manure.

  • Loved John Crace's new, wry look at the coalition "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden". A GREAT Xmas present.

  • One of the best politics books of the year: a satirical account of the bizarre world of coalition bickering.
