Product Description

Review

"All in All, this is a biography worth reading for its humanity and for its occasional political aperçus." --Journal of Liberal History.

"He writes engagingly and often movingly of his life and his faith." --The House Magazine.

"This book, like its author, is reassuring and reflective, quiet should never be confused with dull . Refreshingly Alan Beith comes over as a man of principle based on his long-held beliefs in goodness, justice and faith." --David Stuckey, The Baptist Times.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By ianmillsted@hotmail.com on 13 Dec. 2010
Format: Paperback
Beith is an essentially decent man. Too decent, in fact, to spend much time gossiping about his Westminster colleagues. Those wanting Mandelsonian tittle tattle will be disappointed. In fact this is likely to sell more as a local book over gift shop counters in a part of the world that many, sensibly, choose to visit, than in the bookshops of central London. The title of the book suggests Beith is not unaware of that likelihood. The section on the by-election that brought Beith to Westminster is the most engaging for political junkies. For the more general reader Beith's northern, non-conformist upbringing may be of most interest.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Diana Harris on 23 Feb. 2009
Format: Paperback
Alan Beith is a highly respected Honorary Gentleman whose autobiography is a most interesting and enjoyable read. As a fellow Methodist Lay Preacher I was most interested to read how his faith as a Christian has influenced him in his career as a parliamentarian. As a Liberal Democrat he is a credit to the party, but also respected by other parties at Westminster. As a Cornishman it was good to read about other Cornish Christians in Parliament, especially John Pardoe and David Penhaligon. I was particularly pleased and interested to know about the architectural heritage of chapels, not only in the North of England but also in other parts of the country.
