Books read 2005: My Life by Bill Clinton & Free World by Timothy Garton Ash

17.My Life by Bill Clinton (2004)

Book far too long, yet very readable and engaging. It’s excessive, it waffles, but you can’t help liking it, despite its many flaws, much like the man himself.

18.Free World by Timothy Garton Ash (2005)

Optimistic, to describe it in one word. And that's no bad thing in this current cynical age. We can bridge the divide between Europe and America, and do a lot of other things that will help the world. Tim thinks so. And it's good to read a current affairs book that isn't dull and a chore to read. It's also free of dogma, and obvious, lazy criticism that any idiot can make.
