I won’t write a whole review, but this week I read Nothing But a Circus: Misadventures Among the Powerful by Daniel Levin. It’s a memoir really, a series of stories from around the world as the author works with various international agencies and authorities to promote his development ideas. It’s full of observations on how power distorts and corrupts, and is entertaining and mortifying in equal measure.
