Decent enough read for a good price

"Behind our democracy lurks a powerful but unaccountable network of people who wield massive power and reap huge profits in the process. In exposing this shadowy and complex system that dominates our lives, Owen Jones sets out on a journey into the heart of our Establishment, from the lobbies of Westminster to the newsrooms, boardrooms and trading rooms of Fleet Street and the City. Exposing the revolving doors that link these worlds, and the vested interests that bind them together, Jones shows how, in claiming to work on our behalf, the people at the top are doing precisely the opposite. In fact, they represent the biggest threat to our democracy today - and it is time they were challenged.

[Praise for Owen Jones's Chavs] 'A passionate and well-documented denunciation of the upper-class contempt for the proles that has recently become so visible in the British class system' - Eric Hobsbawm, Guardian Books of 2011

'As with all the best polemics, a luminous anger backlights his prose' - Economist

'A bold attempt to rewind political orthodoxies; to reintroduce class as a political variable ... It moves in and out of postwar British history with great agility, weaving together complex questions of class, culture and identity with a lightness of touch. Jones torches the political class to great effect' - Jon Cruddas, Independent"

The story of how Owen Jones became a millionaire and joined the establishment himself! :)

It's a good book, thorough but still very readable. Although I agree with the majority of what Owen has to say he can be somewhat over zealous in person. His written work is far more considered and substantial.

Do you have to have left-wing sympathies to enjoy this book - or is it more universal than that?

I would say much more universal and provides a good commentary on the insidious nature of power and wealth in the UK.

Ahh awesome. I wouldn't read this, but guess what? I have an Audible credit from last week's voucher deal and I got this for nothing (well 8 quid plus 15 quid amazon voucher in return) so that is a pretty good deal, I was looking for something anti-establishment to listen to, and I've got 14h of unabridged THIS!

Cheers OP.

I noticed having handed over my 99p for this that I was offered the audio version for a further £3.99, either now or in the future - it often seems to be the case that buying a kindle edition and the audible upgrade is cheaper than buying the audiobook alone.
