Product description

Review

Tremendous... A very timely and important account of a modern phenomenon... A damned good read Stephen Fry Mail Men tells you all you need to know about the inner workings of the paper that brings politicians quaking to beg its favour. This well-informed, diamond-sharp analysis of the Mail phenomenon explains why it dominates England's political culture... A riveting read Polly Toynbee A wonderfully gossipy and detailed account of the paper's history and an assessment of its current success... What a waste nobody has turned the early years of the Daily Mail into a television miniseries The Sunday Times Riotously entertaining... [Many] will find that Addison has written the expose of the Mail that they always wanted to read New Statesman An illuminating history... which charts the Mail's journey from pioneer to pillar of the British media industry The Financial Times A rollicking, often compelling read Observer A gripping and very funny account of the newspaper [that] reveals its brutal brilliance ... surprisingly jaunty... The portrait of the Mail he paints shows that the newspaper is not as bad as some people say: it is even worse. Prospect magazine Excellent... The inside story of how the Daily Mail became a much-feared national institution Choice magazine

Bought this book as a gift for my Dad who loves the Mail, having it delivered every day for the majority of his 89 years.
When I eventually persuaded him to let go of it so I could have a read, I had to agree with him that it is a brilliant book.
Well written in a pacy, quirky style- full of humorous anecdotes, telling the story of this national institution loved or loathed
in equal measure, I would not be surprised to see a TV company buy the rights to this, probably restoring some of the naughty
bits that the author was no doubt asked to remove before publication.Well.even Governments are supposedly afraid of the Mail.

A great insight into the internal workings of an organisation that purports to be the fair-minded voice of England. The pressure, threats, bullying and misery within those walls is a testament to how NOT to run a business and treat people. Well written and colourful.
