Product Description

Review

‘One of England’s greatest living historical writers. Reading anything by him is pure pleasure.’ Amanda Foreman

‘Engaging new biography'.’ Guardian

‘A fine new biography…an acute and insightful personal biography.’ Andrew Roberts, Daily Telegraph

‘In this shouty world, Hibbert’s account of the private life of Benjamin Disraeli comes as an immensely dependable relief…Innumerable younger historians owe Hibbert an immense debt, although he is probably too unassuming to allow them to pay it.’ Sunday Times

'…the book is thoroughly enjoyable…What Hibbert does extremely well is to construct a readable, well written narrative…a superbly skilful historical writer.’ Spectator

This is the usual quality biography from CH. (I have his Dickens, too). He never sentimentalizes his subject but always presents them with sympathy and honesty. This study is funny, vivid, sometimes disturbing, but any fan of Dizzy knows he was a complex character, no saint. Hibbert can make politics fascinating, when TV makes the House of Commons look like a cross between a public school dormitory and a public school playground... Great research, great style.

Hibbert's biographies are always well researched,
enlightening and entertaining. He was particularly
at home in the 19th century as his books on Disraeli
and Queen Victoria demonstrate.

I wanted to read this book after visiting his home at High Wycombe. I didn't read it for the history factor, I read it just because I wanted to know more about the man and his family. It was a little difficult to understand in parts, but on the whole it was good. I shall read it again.
