[Book Review] The Complete Yes Minister – The Diaries of a Cabinet Minister by the Right Hon. James Hacker MP by Jonathan Lynn and Antony Jay

This was one review that has long remained pending.

This is a fantastic book. The portable form of Yes Minister sitcom that rocked BBC in 1980s. In India, we have  had a hindi TV-series by the name of “JI Mantriji” and many countries have had TV series based on this book.

I love humorous books and stories and am a pucca Wodehousean and a great fan of Jeeves, Wooster and Psmith. The characters created by Wodehouse are immortal. Similarly, the characters of Yes Minister are straight from the world near you. You can see the same politics happening around you in your own country.

It is really a nice book. Recommended for all.
