Moore has produced a biography so masterly ... that it comes as close as biography can come to being a work of art (Craig Brown Mail on Sunday)
Moore's great gift is his ability to make Thatcher's story fresh again, and above all to remind us of how odd she was ... the access to her family and friends enabled Moore to produce a multifaceted picture of a compelling life ... [this] will now become the definitive account (Anne Applebaum Daily Telegraph)
Intricate, elegant and laced with dry humour (Andrew Rawnsley Observer)
Outstandingly good (A.N. Wilson Evening Standard)
