    Ten Inny characters ☆ 106 Ten InnyA distinctly underwhelming book encapsulated far succinctly and memorably as “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”Kapucinski expounds at length over 79 pages; WITHOUT at any point SIMPLIFYING his thesis to conclude that essentially our species is hard wired to breed whatever the cost and to promote its own individual successes and economic advantages ie that of our own family and maybe also that of our own tribe over all other comers That’s it Nothing costly except to pride nothing complicated Absolutely no real vital need whatsoever to misappropriate Mother Earth’s natural resources to publish and distribute seventy nine pages on the subject; this is a book that comprehensively fails to justify gracing physical space in my libraryInstead simply spread by mouth e

    Ten Inny characters ☆ 106 Ten InnyI took this book as a companion on my journey through Italy and loved every bit of it As a matter of fact I often found myself inclined to stay in my hostel room reading this as opposed to going out Kapiscinski's reflections on the third world hit really close to home and made me enthusiastic about the world I live in and have yet to discover in the fashion he has

    Ten Inny characters ☆ 106 Ten InnySpeeches reduced to paper often make mediocre books This book is a collection of Kapuscinski's material that was intended to be delivered in person before an audience There is barely enough content to stretch between two covers and much of it is repetitive suggesting a ploy by the Verso editors to milk a few bucks from Kapuscinski's recent passing There are a few interesting concepts eg a brief argument that literature dropped the ball along with journalism in addressing the upheavals of the last decade; a note attributing the origins of hospitality to early tendencies to suspect strangers of being anthropomorphized gods It's a shame because The Emperor is one of the twenty best books I've ever read and this simply isn't a good selection of his work Neal Ascherson's intro is the most engaging part of this book As an aside it also seemed terribly

    Ten Inny characters ☆ 106 Ten InnyI’ve read a fair bit of Kapuscinski and I always find something worthwhile and rewarding in his writing This on the other hand reeks of cynical publishing cash in Kapuscinski makes some interesting points in these lectures but nothing too profound and nothing too compelling This is really nothing than a strange disappointing and puzzling publication which is far from essential reading Instead get a hold of one of his many other fine books like “The Shadow of The Sun”

    Ten Inny characters ☆ 106 Ten InnyThe book is an elouent lecture series on interacting with ‘the other’ in a multicultural global world published posthumously The other refers to non White non Christian non Europeans but is widely generalisable While it is too simplistic I hope it is a good introduction to the author
