I adore reading political books, it is one of my guilty pleasures as it gives you a real insight that you do not always see, so I knew I had to pick up If Only They Didn’t Speak English.
As the BBC’s North American Editor, Jon Sopel has experienced the United States from a perspective that most of us could only dream of; he has flown aboard Air Force One, interviewed President Obama and was famously described as ‘a beauty’ by Donald Trump.
Jon sets out to answer our questions about a country that once stood for the grandest of dreams, but which is now mired in a storm of political extremism, racial division and increasingly perverse beliefs.
A full review of this book will be on my blog shortly. If Only They Didn’t Speak English is published by BBC Books
