It doesn't matter your background. You could be a former felon from computer hacking, mobster hit man or disgraced politician or businessman. There's money to be made in writing a book, regardless of how crap the contents or writing style.

The wisdom of honesty??

Listening to Alastair Darling's speech telling us that we are in for a recession made me wonder about the wisdom of honesty in a political system where 'the other sides' are unlikely to applaud him for being candid, hionest, truthful etc.

 Can / Should leaders be entirely truthful in situations where it is almost certainly career limiting?
