The Ed Balls library

Alex Barker has been noting the contents of Ed Balls' bookshely over at the FT's Westminster blog and says that

His office collection, for the most part, stands to his credit. There are a couple of odd choices (Gerald Ronson’s autobigraphy?). But the quality is generally high (particularly for an office) and there are no embarrassing texts on “Great Chancellors”. Indeed, I probably regard Balls more highly after having taken a peak into his library

Check out the full article to see what is on the shelves.But why Gerald Ronson's auto biography?

The former jailbird and property tycoon explains how “he fought his way to the top of the business ladder, lost everything twice, then clawed his way back up again”. Just what an education secretary needs.
