(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'A superb book' - Guardian

WITH A NEW CHAPTER BY THE AUTHOR

LONGLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE 2017

'A much-needed antidote to the miasma of spin, incivility and 'truthiness' that afflicts politics today' - Michael J. Sandel, author of What Money Can't Buy

What's gone wrong with the language of politics?

We've never had more information or more opportunity to debate the issues of the day. Yet the relationship between politicians, the media and the people is characterised by suspicion and indifference.

Featuring Donald Trump, Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn and many more star performers, Enough Said reveals how public language is losing its power, and how an ominous gap is opening between the governed and those who govern. The result of decades of first-hand experience of politics and media, this is an essential diagnosis of what we must do to reinvigorate our democracy.

'A timely attack on the hellish state of political language' - Daily Telegraph

'This important study...Identifies many culprits for the destructiveness of political debate' - Observer

'Thompson writes... compellingly, shaking arguments free of the established wisdom until they reveal their hidden flaws or virtues' - Financial Times


AUTHOR: Mark Thompson is CEO of the New York Times and has served as Chief Executive of Channel 4 and Director General of the BBC. In 2012 he was a visiting professor of rhetoric and the art of public persuasion at the University of Oxford.
