Great Book, Advice to anyone and take it for what it is.

I think its wrong to say that most of what you find in this book can be found in the Blair Years. Unless it has super natural powers how can a book of 700 pages house a book that is 800 pages and contains 4 diaries in 1!
If you want a brief overview of Alastair Campbell's diaries I would advice you to get the "Blair Years" otherwise buy the complete diaries for the day to day events that show the ups and downs, highlights and stagnation (slightly boring parts) of the worlds most famous Spin Doctor and Communications Director.
So please don't buy this book and then write a awful review of 1-2 stars because you don't like the man, to much repetitiveness (its a diary not a story), parts are the same as the "Blair Years or because you want see the book fail!
It has been clearly stated by Alastair on the "One Show", "Book Talk", "Five Live" etc what these books are and what they are in comparison to the Blair years so research for a mere 5 minutes before purchasing otherwise you may be displeased.
My view finally is that the book is great, Ive got the "Blair Years" and with the release of these 2 books it has given be an incite into the sheer hatred between the "Big 4", the back stabbing that is constantly witnessed and so on. Above all it has helped me with my Education.
