When it comes to Thatcher, there are three types of people:
1. Those who think she's the devil (i.e. if you trip over a stone in the road, it was put there by Maggie).
2. Those who recognise her great abilities & achievements but also see her flaws.
and
3. Those who see her as God.

When I started reading this book, I thought that the author was a number '3' as the back cover is lavish in praise and the introduction is fawning of the times he met her in person.
Still, the good thing about the book is that it is essentially a compilation of speeches, so any bias that the author may have only comes across in his selection of speeches which, as mentioned, are some of her best ones.

It starts off with her maiden speech in the House of Commons (in favour of her private member's bill), which won a great deal of praise from parliamentary superiors at the time. Unlike other books/ CDs, there is also interviews and speeches from before 1979, her abilities as a leader of the opposition come across well and I daresay David Cameron learnt a thing or two from her actions during this period.

Moving on to the speeches in power (which is covered by 3 chapters), I noticed that one of her best conference speeches was missed out - 1982. However, a good spread of speeches is still there, including her 'Francis of Assisi' remarks on gaining office and the 'Lady's not for turning' speech.
Interestingly, the three sections in office also cover a lot of interviews, parliamentary discourse & other material which normally don't feature in these sorts of books and help break up the narrative.

Although Margaret Thatcher is now no longer with us, and despite the variety of views about her, there can be no doubt this woman was indeed a great leader and had a strength of character unsurpassed to this day.
This CD has produced many of her infamous speeches, is clear and accurate, and takes you back to those days when they were made.
Close your eyes and listen, the content of what she says reflects the high intelligence and grasp of the then current problems, her evaluation and remedies certainly worked.
These are actual sppeches made by her, and not voice-overs, humourous in part, entertaining certainly, spoken with integrity and great perception, the CD is worth having if only to remind us that such a talent existed.
Highly recommended.

CD : in conditions descibed in the offer
Speeches : absolutely fantactic to hear how she performed her speeches, simply by listening not only what she says by with with tone at what moment in the speech. Beyong the words, the alignement of the speeker and the content of her speechs.
Interesting to hear the evolution of her voice since the beginning of her political career till her top.
