5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Overview, 12 Jan. 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brown at 10 (Hardcover)
I take the point made by others that this is not a detailed and rigorous academic tone but it is convincing and fascinating for someone, like myself, who took an interest in politics during GB's premiership. It reads easily and yet annotation is extensive enough to give opportunity to dig deeper if required. The structure of the book is basically to give a changing picture of the people and dynamics around GB and then to relate their role to significant events that unfolded in chronological order. Anyone that has asked themself the question, "why did he do that"? Or, "what was behind those events"? Will find it a treasure-trove of information.

On the one hand it shows GB as a human and intelligent figure who undoubtedly was in the right place during the 2008 economic crisis. But his lack of leadership and organisation skills throughout his Premiership are quite frightening.

Strongly recommended as a revealing and easy read.
