5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Thing Ever Written About Tony Blair
Simon Carr's years observing Tony Blair while he was a journalist and his comic genius combine to produce the most perceptive piece ever written about Blair. It's never cruel and often funny. It seeks to understand the man, and to explain. It's very deep. Of course, it deserves to be performed, and must be, but is hugely enjoyable to read. I laughed about 30 times, and...

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a comedown
Simon Carr is my favorite Parliamentary sketch writer, incisive and witty and a joy to read. The substance of the book is a cleaver idea but it cannot sustain substantial treatment.

Could have been written by a first year English graduate hiding behind the cycle sheds. Sarcasm only thinly disguised as humour. Hopefully there will not be a book concerning the last judgement of Winston Churchill.

Great read, very witty and fantastic for the commute as it is easy to dip in and out of. I recommend this highly.

I got bored very quickly and I didn't even finish reading it- which is very unusual for me, especially with a Single which is relatively short. It felt like yet another Tony Blair ego-trip in the end, only someone else doing it for him.
