Very clear, readable and honest account of the Tories fall from grace. It also begins to explain why they are still a contaminated product, even now in 2009. Winning the 1992 election was probably their biggest disaster. Had they lost this, they would have bounced back well before now. Fowler sets the slow motion car crash out in a straightforward and admirably blunt way. A really good read.

Informative and easy to read dissection of the Conservatives' rise to Government in 1979 and where it all went wrong in the run up to 1997. An insight into what goes on behind the scenes of a party in Government and where it can all unravel.

Norman Fowler's background as a journalist helps him write superbly and his insider's knowledge ensures that the reader gets a few nuggets that might otherwise not be recorded.

Well worth reading and make sure you read his other books too!

Norman Fowler offers an insiders view of the troubles of the Conservative Party.

The narrative is stronger on the early years. More detail is covered and more logical arguements deployed. Unfortunately it tails off and one gets a sense of rushing towards the end.

The style is easy to digest, perhaps reflecting his journalistic roots.

An enjoyable and worthwhile read.
