This review is from: George Osborne: The Austerity Chancellor (Hardcover)
This is a really good account of the current chancellor. I read this book out of interest and not out of being a big supporter, and it is impressive. The book, whilst of course being in the main about Osborne, sees the author, especially from the second section onwards, managing to give a great overview of the political sphere of elections from '92- '10, lacing Osborne in amongst the various ups and downs and tactical moves. The book shows Osborne as still something on an enigma in his thoughts, tactics and ambitions.
It sounds somewhat sad to categorically state that I thought that a political book about George Osborne was a genuine 'page turner', but that is indeed what it was. The author's style of writing, whilst containing copious words that one often does not see in writing these days [a good thing](I needed to frequently refer to a dictionary lol), keeps the reader engaged, and whilst obviously with a right of the spectrum bias, not overbearingly so.
