Lunch with the FT: 52 Classic Interviews

The title is pretty self explanatory. There’s quite the range of public figures in the book as you can probably tell from the cover. Some are interesting some aren’t.

I’d say the best way to read this book is just choose the people you’re interested in because even if you don’t know about a certain person you’re not going to get that much of an insight beyond their odd quirks or general demeanour.

It’s not a great book however it’s definitely interesting to get an insight into some of these people’s lives. It’s good to just read an interview here and there if you want a quick read every now and again.
