The Fifth Elephant Kindle ¶ The Fifth PDF/EPUB ²

They say that diplomacy is a gentle art That its finest practitioners are subtle sophisticated individuals for whom nuance and subtext are meat and drink And that mastering it is a lifetime's work But you do need a certain inclination in that direction It's not something you can just pick up on the jobWhich is a shame if you find yourself dropped unaccountably into a position of some significant diplomatic responsibility If you don't really do diplomacy or haven't been to school with the right foreign bigwigs or aren't even sure whether a nod is as good as a wink to anyone sighted or otherwise then things are likely to go wrong It's just a question of how badly

    You know what Goodreads really needs? The ability for someone to leave multiple reviews of a book that they've read at multiple points in their lifeI'd like to talk about my recent thoughts on this book but I don't want to erase my old review or change the date on it Think how nice it would be to look back on your reading history and see how your attitudes have changed over the course of your life Books you loved as a kid that pale as you mature versus books you liked when you were young that grow even better with ageI'd love to see something like that added here What about you guys?There's worse ways to start the year than reading some Pratchett So that's what I did I've only read this one one once before and that was years back so it was fun and pretty fresh for me I'm a big fan of Vimes but even given my bias this is a great book Probably not on the level of Pratchett's best Monstrous Regiment Thud Wee free Men but still a great book
