Thought:
Nothing but a Circus: Misadventures among the Powerful by Daniel Levin is a wonderful, easy to read book about his life hobnobbing with powerful people. The book is a collection of funny, crazy yet relatable anecdotes.

But in all honesty, the book scary as well. It is terrifying to think that there are some incompetent nincompoops, or simply uncaring bureaucrats, in charge of programs meant to help millions of people costing billions of dollars.

Mr. Levin is also confident enough to admit he does not know all, and still has much to learn. In one story, probably my favorite, he goes to Africa to teach them about economics, only to be taken to an underground market where, unknowingly, the people practice what he preached in an efficient, productive way without all the technology.

Poking fun at politicians is a worldwide favorite pastime, and I enjoyed this book very much. i’m sure the author has many more stories he can relate – maybe he should start a second career going on a speaking tour.
