Pressestimmen

"

Its closely observed portrayal of what goes on in the

corridors of power has given me hours of pure joy

" (Rt Hon. Margaret Thatcher MP)

"

We have had diaries from other Cabinet Ministers, but none I

think which have been quite so illuminating... It is a

fascinating diary... It is shorter than Barbara Castle's... and

although it is rather more accurate than Dick Crossman's, it

is distinctly funnier

" (Lord Allen of Abbeydale (formerly Permanent Secretary at the Home Office) The Times)

"

It has an entertainment and educational value which is

unique. It is uproariously funny and passes the acid test of

becoming more amusing at every subsequent reading... I will

go so far as to claim that in the characters of Jim Hacker and

Sir Humphrey Appleby, Messrs Lynn and Jay have created

something as immortal as P.G. Wodehouse's Bertie Wooster

and Jeeves

" (Brian Walden The Standard)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wie Politik wirklich funktioniert 28. Januar 2001
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Das Buch ist eine mehr als gelungene Umsetzung der gleichnamigen englischen Fernsehserie - umwerfend komisch und erschreckend plausibel wird erläutert, wie Politik gemacht bzw. verhindert wird. Der Form nach handelt es sich um das Tagebuch des Ministers James Hacker. Getrieben von (zunächst noch...) gesundem Menschenverstand und dem Willen zur Wiederwahl kämpft der Minister für eine effiziente und bürgernahe Verwaltung. In dem Ministerium für Verwaltungsangelegenheiten unter Staatssekretär Sir Humphrey Appleby natürlich eine fast aussichtslose Angelegenheit. Für alle politisch interessierte Fans von englischem Humor ein "must" - dies gilt natürlich auch für die Fortsetzung "Yes Prime Minister".

5.0 von 5 Sternen Yes yes yes 5. März 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Die BBC-Serie war, ist und bleibt großartig! Das ist der echte Blick hinter die Kulissen in der Politik. Ein funktionierender Beamtenapparat manövriert den Minister aus. Immer wieder gut!

Zwar spielt die Satire in Großbritannien, aber wenn man sich unseren deutschen Politikbetrieb ansieht, könnte man vieles - nur nicht so pfiffig - auch hier vorstellen. Die BBC-Fernsehserie als Buch, eine ertfreuliche Freizeitlektüre!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely Priceless! 17. Dezember 2003
Von Tiggah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It is not uncommon for writers of britcoms to supplement a successful television series with a text-based adaptation, and such is indeed what writers Jonathan Lynn and Antony Jay have done with Yes Minister (and its sequel, Yes Prime Minister). It is uncommon, however, to find such a good one.
Every bit as erudite and witty as the series upon which it is based, The Complete Yes Minister (originally published in 1984 and subtitled The Diaries of a Cabinet Minister), is ostensibly by the Right Hon. James Hacker MP (with Lynn and Jay serving merely as humble editors!). The year is 2019--and no this is NOT science fiction! Although Hacker kept a daily diary of his experiences and opinions whilst in office in the 1980s, the subsequent passage of time has resulted in the expiration of the Thirty-Year Rule. What this means is that the editors (who are writing from Hacker College, Oxford, by the way!) now conveniently have access to (and are able to publish) copies of all the memos and minutes written by Sir Humphrey Appleby (amongst others)--copies of which are included in the book, thereby providing us with a perspective other than Hacker's rather narrow (and, at least initially, innocent) one.
The book commences (as one would expect!) with the "Editors' Note." Lynn and Jay elaborate on the problems they encountered in editing the Diaries and how these were dealt with. Nevertheless, they admit it falls to us ultimately to decide for ourselves whether Hacker's account represents: "(a) what happened, (b) what he believed happened, (c) what he would like to have happened, (d) what he wanted others to believe happened, or (e) what he wanted others to believe that he believed happened"! The editors also include a note of thanks to Sir Humphrey (whose last days were spent in St. Dympna's Hospital for the Elderly Deranged!) for information gleaned from conversations which were held with him "before the advancing years, without in any way impairing his verbal fluency, disengaged the operation of his mind from the content of his speech."
The Diaries themselves are divided into twenty-one chapters (one chapter per episode) with 20 to 30 pages each (there are 514 pages in all). Of course there is dialogue (from Hacker's recollection), but the Diaries comprise so much more. The inclusion of copies of memos, letters, interviews, newspaper clippings, entries from Sir Humphrey's own diary, not to mention the recollections of Sir Bernard Woolley (from conversations with the editors) make for a far more dynamic, fun book than if the writers had merely presented us with the series' scripts. The format also allows for so much of Hacker's thoughts to be included--much of which we as viewers were never privy to. Finally, the Diaries are liberally annotated by the editors with helpful, humorously phrased bits of background information often pertaining to government workings or terminology--bits that are additional to the television series.
Of course, it is being a fan of the television series and having watched it with such enjoyment that makes this book (a UK publication) such a gem as we picture Hacker, Sir Humphrey, etc., in our mind's eye. But it is so creatively written, with all the original wit (and more), that it's a superb book in its own right--one which I'd recommend to anyone looking for an intelligent, hilariously witty, pun-filled book--one that also happens to offer a wealth of insight into the inner workings of the parliamentary system of government. For those, however, for whom this richly witty, intelligent series is a favourite, this book (together with it's sequel) really is a must-have, and I recommend it every bit as highly as the superb series upon which it is based!

5.0 von 5 Sternen That rarest humour - which is found in truth. 24. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Yes Prime Minister is that rarest of books. It is based on a TV show, itself hilarious, and yet manages to be even better than the show. Whereas the show descends into slapstick and exaggerated humour at times, the book does not miss a step. The plots are wonderfully woven, the characters all superbly crafted and uniformly shallow and the writing is impeccable - there are never two words when one will do, and the characters will stay with you long after the first (of many) reading(s). I suspect in years to come, when some distance can be put between the book and it's times, it will be recognised as one of the all time comedy classics. Buy it now!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unsurpassed!! 24. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The complete Yes, Minister & Yes, Prime Minister series is absolutely brilliant!! The inner workings of the Civil Service are brought to light in a form that is both humourous and witty. This is genre-defining political satire, and reading the book and watching the shows have provided me with hours of immense pleasure, as well as insight into what really goes on in the corridors of power.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Quite simply the Best book in Satirical humor 21. März 2002
Von Ashwin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Sir Humphrey Appleby, Sir Bernard Wooley, and Rt Honorable James Hacker... this is simply the most outstanding work of humorous fiction that lampoons the British civil service and politicians alike.
Based on the diaries of the minister, the series has been converted to a wonderful teleseries, where the casting has been done by someone who truly loves the book and has imbibed the characters so completely, that on later readings of the book, the television characters appear to the mind.
The book is a series of short stories, which expose the careful interplay between the British civil service and the British politicians, the role played by media, the foriegn office, the various departments etc. It is a wonderful set of stories, where the English is truly masterful!! I remember reading each story with a pencil and dictionary while writing the GRE many years ago,... this and its sequel, yes prime minister, are books which should receive their space in your cabinet.
I dont know why this says - Limited availability, these books are easily procured in India where they are being printed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen British humor at its best 31. März 2002
Von Housemaidsknee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
if you like your humor understated and your wit dry (droll as humphrey would no doubt say), this book will be the best you have ever read. and it will stay that way.
the british civil service had a unique characteristic - it was not directly under the control of the political masters. this gave rise to a very interesting situation where the civil service and her majesty's servants were working towards entirely opposite ends. to the civil servant, imaginative and bold were the worst criticisms. change in any form was looked down upon - as we say here - "if it aint broke, dont fix it". the politicians (especially those new in office like hacker who weren't cynical enough not to care one way or the other) often came to office with lofty ideals of revolutionizing society and being the forefathers of a better tomorrow.
behind the curtain of civility, they (the civil servants and politicians) fought battle after battle. the art of realpolitik meant entirely diffent things to both sides. many of the battles went to the civil servants (Lord Humphrey being among the shrewdest) but at times Hacker (James Hacker - first minister and later Prime Minister) prevailed with his low cunning and fast realization that not everything was what it looked like.
each chapter is a revelation - the next time you read the news, you will see it in an entire different perspective after reading this book. action and motive are so far removed as to make the connection entirely unimaginable and the amount of time spent trying to do nothing seems at times appalling.
if slapstick is your cup of tea, stay away from this book. the humor is often less in what is said than in how it is said. the laughs never end. i have read this book 5 times now. the first time, you enjoy the humor for what it is. the second time, you start enjoying the situations, the broader picture, the political moves,and the sheer genius of humphrey. the third time you see how the characters develop. by the fourth time, it's like you're on crack. you cant explain it - you know what is going to happen next, you know the exact words. you still have to read it again. and again. and again.
