Read this book more than 15 years ago and found it such an inspirational read about such an inspirational woman. Barbara Castle was a woman who made it in a man's world. She has been a mover and shaker for the whole of her life. Though having a hint of Thatcher about her she never lost her feel for the common man or woman (or stopped being a socialist!).

This book arrived promptly and well packaged.
It's a good biography of an interesting politician, and a useful counterweight to Barbara's own account "Fighting All The Way".

the book arrived on time and in good condition. The biography itself is nicely written: the author keeps a good balance together with a perceptive commentary on the events that occur in the life story of BC.
