The Complete Yes Minister Summary

The Complete Yes Minister by Jonathan Lynn

'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) in 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 in The Standard
