That was one of the questions I was asked when taking part in a virtual book club meeting this weekend with Liberal Democrats in Hull and neighbouring areas.
Here were my four picks, looking to include – as the questioner requested – titles that are a little off the beaten track for political campaigning choices:
- How to win friends and influence people – as, at heart, that’s what politics is about: Amazon / Waterstones.
- Talking to a brick wall – a more mainstream choice for this topic, as it’s such a fabulous book: Amazon / Waterstones.
- Who decides? – or how to make the most of all those committees you will be hoping to end up on: Amazon / Waterstones. (May they be the Cabinet rather than the Joint States Calendar Coordination Committee, of course.)
- The war with newts – this one just for fun; fiction with political overtones in the spirit of Animal Farm: Amazon / Waterstones.
Now over to you: what books would you recommend to someone wanting to become a better campaigner?
