    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I don t really know what I was expecting when I went into this, but I was left disappointed anyway I suppose I was looking for a social commentary on the working class and poverty stricken people of Britain, but this readlike a political statement Granted, it was better than a channel 5 documentary that exploits the vulnerable, but I didn t really find it all that interesting e...

    I strongly recommend this book for anyone looking for fresh thinking on poverty in modern Britain Scotland The author is very honest about his own experiences and thinking, but of course doesn t guarantee that he s right on everything, and the reflective nature of his writing is both a strength and weakness of the book means that he ends up contradicting himselfthan once IMO, this is a book encouraging the reader to challenge their own ego and assumptions, so if you are reading this in t I strongly recommend this book for anyone looking for fresh thinking on poverty in modern Britain Scotland The author is very honest about his own experiences and thinking, but of course doesn t guarantee that he s right on everything, and the reflective nature of his writing is both a strength and weakness of the book means that he ends up contradicting himselfthan once IMO, this is a book encouraging the reader to challenge their own ego and assumptions, so if you are reading this in the hope of a pat on the back, you will probably be disappointed If you want food for thought, this is a feast.I could join the chorus of voices saying that the perception of what middle class people do and think is unfair, but the point isn t to paint middle ...

    Everyone should read this book.Rather histrionic, perhaps, but the truth Shocking, visceral, angry and anger inducing, Poverty Safari shines a light into the darkest corners of society, highlighting the forgotten, the overlooked If we have anything about us, we should see this book as a rallying call it is surely time, as Grenfell still smoulders and the queues at the food banks snake ever longer, to examine where we as a society are going wrong Fluently and beautifully written, Poverty Safa Everyone should read this book.Rather histrionic, perhaps, but the truth Shocki...

    After reading a number of articles both by and about Darren McGarvey, I must admit that I went into Poverty Safari with high expectations It s perhaps because of these expectations that I came away from the book feeling a little disappointed Before I go any further with actually reviewing the content of Poverty Safari, allow me first to state that McGarvey writes extremely well The first few pages of his book are dedicated to his love of writing, and walk the reader through how, from a very y After reading a number of articles both by and about Darren McGarvey, I must admit that I went into Poverty Safari with high expectations It s perhaps because of these expectations that I came away from the book feeling a little disappointed Before I go any further with actually reviewing the content of Poverty Safari, allow me first to state that McGarvey writes extremely well The first few pages of his book are dedicated to his love of writing, and walk the reader through how, from a very young age, McGarvey enjoyed learning and using new words, in ways which would often put him at odds with his environment, where eloquence was usually viewed as the preserve of the privileged middle and upper classes and therefore treated with scorn McGarvey, in a way that makes the reader feel like chuckling and smiling sadly at the same time, recounts how he was called gay by his male classmates when he dared call the hair of a female classmate beautiful alth...

    The book start of very well with a powerful description of living with an abusive mother The author really excels at describing unsettling, moving scenes and his personal experiences of poverty There is an interesting section on identity politics and the intersection with class which is often ignored However, the book falls down when it comes to analysis and solutions It seems there is an attempt to write this book for everyone but the left There is no mention of low pay, of exploitation The book start of very well with a powerful description of living with an abusive mother The author really excels at describing unsettling, moving scenes and his personal experiences of poverty There is an interesting section on identity politics and the intersection with class which is often ignored However, the book falls down when it comes to analysis and solutions It seems there is an attempt to write this book for everyone but the left There is no mention of low pay, of ex...
