              TRUST ME, I'M NOT A POLITICIAN: A simple guide to saving democracy (EPUB ebook)

In this scintillating essay, nothing and no one escapes Byrne's razor-sharp wit as s...he takes on the politicians avoiding rigorous journalistic scrutiny, explores the pitfalls of impartiality, imagines what Plato might say to Trump - and calls out plenty of sexist bastards along the way.
