In How to be a Politician, Sir Vince Cable draws on the words of his predecessors, weaving together the wittiest, wisest and most acerbic political quotations from the last 2,000 years.
Following the arc of a life in politics – from childhood signs of potential to running for office, getting elected and forming a government; ascending the greasy pole to the pinnacle of leadership and a place on the world’s stage; dealing with mistakes, detractors, criticism, humiliation and failure; and finally escaping the political life altogether.
