Not Quite World's End by John Simpson

Book Description

In "Not Quite World's End", Simpson offers a lively and upbeat look at the challenges and the changes the world has gone through in his life and long career. In it, he looks at the world and takes the perhaps surprising view that it's actually not nor will be the end of the world. His vivid prose, his clear-sightedness and the wonderful anecdotes about the many strange people and places he has come across - from emperors to movie stars, from Chelsea to China - all add up to a richly satisfying read. And with his long experience and his remarkable ability to explain what's really going on out there, he offers us all a crumb of comfort in desperate times. 'He is a very fine journalist' - Nelson Mandela. 'Inspirational, anecdotal, humorous and chilling. Simpson's unbiased accounts are riveting' - Bob Geldof.
