This is an extremely thorough - and long - self-portrait. At the end of each chapter there are many letters - my advice is to ignore these at first reading then only dip into the ones that interest you. Id have prefered the letters all to be at the end of the book.: on a kindle it is a little frustrating to skim them or else retun to the contents page in order to get to the next chapter.

The substance of the book is mostly gripping [althought I got bored with a few episodes] and give an excellent insight into the development of his unilateral disarmament position. Most of all, though, I was pleased with the unfolding of his personal development and his honesty in discussing his weaknesses and frailities

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure enjoyment 13 Sep 2012
By Elena Boguslavsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am enjoying every word of this outstanding memoir. Some readers complain about the long and seemingly irrelevant letters, but if you do not rush, they open up to you such an authentic, fresh and unaltered view of those times, events and people, and their private lives you can hardly get from anywhere else. I think those letters complement the text in a unique way.
After reading W. Churchills' memoir this book seems to be rather laconic.

the loneliness of the human soul is unendurable; nothing can penetrate it except the highest intensity of the sort of love that religious teachers have preached; whatever does not spring from this motive is harmful, or at best useless; it follows that war is wrong, that a public school education is abominable, that the use of force is to be deprecated, and that in human relations one should penetrate to the core of loneliness in each person and speak to that. &quote;
