When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story. But before Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic.

Katie Hopkins' hilarious and revealing book Rude is part memoir, part handbook for the modern woman. Laughing through the chapters of her life, she shares her disasters, her biggest disappointments, and the time she had to tell her boss she was on the front pages of the tabloids for having sex in a field. From being kicked out of the army for being epileptic, to firing Lord Sugar; from her first husband leaving her in the maternity ward for the secretary, to the reality behind Celebrity Big Brother, she has plenty of surprises to share and lessons she thinks we should learn.

I loved this.. only because it shows how words are being completely misused these days. Her opinions... just opinions, are to some, 'rude'. No more so than most people if they are honest. Unfortunately we now live in a delicate world where discussing anything that might upset a few is deemed.. wrong. I thought we lived in a democracy. Thought this was brilliant.. empowering.. the kick up the arse I needed. I do think Katie was wrong when she didn't apologize to a poor lady on big brother who had a large arm due to her illness. That is rude.. but she's not hiding she's a bitch. And if we are to get rid of bitches in the world.. what was feminism for? To only give a voice to the nice ones. lol. Shows me I need to harden up a bit, have a sense of humour. and taking the piss isn't 'hate speech!!!

I've been listening to Jordan a lot on you tube over the past few months. I have watched and learnt so much. Even a simple lesson of watching him pausing and calming himself in aggressive interviews before answering back has been priceless. But through his book, it's so nice to actually listen fully to his train of thoughts. Uninterrupted by idiological arguments from others and explained with references we've all grown up with but never had fully explained in such a way whilst growing up. I feel calmer and ready to face the world and can't wait to listen to again.

Not that it matters to this review.. but I am a woman.. And based on his book.. now proud to be one. Always thought it meant to be less than man. But my role as a human.. if that be it free to choose: mother, bread winner, wife, or friend.. is as equally important to any other role around me. so much more to say but I will leave it there.

Thank you

Love democracy? This book clearly shows the breakdown of democracy with the use of the 'Pariot Act' in America towards its own people who only want to tell the truth after the 9/11 attacks. Especially Susan Lindauer. An American asset. Her story told in full.
