In between finishing off my next book on the Rugby World Cup 2011 (with co-author Colin Herridge), I was able to read the following books:

***** The New Machiavelli by Jonathan Powell; a Christmas cracker must-read for all politicos

** Five Days to Power by Rob Wilson MP; slightly boring assessment of the Tory-Lib Dem pact back in May, 2010

** After the Lemons: the Glory Days of Bath rugby by Kevin Coughlan, Peter Hall & Colin Gale; volume two takes us from 1965 to 1996 and features a photo and slight mentions of your truly (Bath player 1978-82). This was a Christmas present and devoured quickly. Fails to record my 29 tries in seasons 1978-79 and 1979-80 which equalled the try scoring record at Bath of George Haydon (1931-32).......

**** The Return of the Public by Dan Hind: this is another must-read which examines why the politicial class has lost is resonance with the public and gives excellent historical examples to make the case
