Goodreads Book Review - The Complete Yes Minister

The Complete Yes MinisterThe Complete Yes Minister by Jonathan Lynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A superbly written series of stories. Apart from the cut-and-thrust banter that the inimitable Sir Humphrey and Woolley get up to with Hacker; what is even more apparent from this imbroglio of the British "functional anarchy" is that we (as Indians) have taken from the Brits what we should have left well alone and left alone what we should have learnt from them and incorporated into our own system.

What is heartening though, is that even Thatcher provided inputs to the writers about Whitehall and the political system of the great empire (http://goo.gl/YRjvyJ).

A throughly enjoyable and revealing piece of literature.
