A must for people interested in the events of the last 20 years, the workings of New Labour, the relationships between Blair, Brown, Prescott, Mandelson and and the other key players in and around the last government. Campbell was very much a key figure in all this, and records his impressions and contributions in his daily diary with refreshing and sometimes surprising honesty - it can't be a very comfortable read for Gordon Brown at times. This volume deals with the two years leading up to September 11, 2001 and contains insights onto the relationships with Clinton and Bush as well as numerous domestic issues ranging from foot and mouth to the fuel protests and the general election.

I must admit to being a fan of these diaries - I have read all three volumes so far. If you are interested in politics and want a ringside seat on the events of the last decade, - this may well be a great book for you too, whatever your views of the last government.

Very interesting and informative giving an insight on behind the scenes on how the Labour Government was run.
Although it is very heavy reading going through the detail of his day to day workload and the pressures on his family life it is stillworth sticking with it too the end.

What was striking was how much effort he had to put in dealing with bruised egos of ministers and their petty arguments, it was amazing anygthing got done!

The third volume of AC's diaries are as hypnotic as the previous two. I am one of those, probably rare, people who are addicted to politics and AC's diaries show that government is not easy because government (and opposition) is carried out by human beings with all their foibles. I admire AC for not shying away from putting in the diaries the strain (an understatement) the job puts on him and his family. The diary ends on September 11, 2001 - the day the world changed. I found myself logging on to Amazon to find out when the last volume was to be published - January 2013 - in the meantime, I am now reading Chris Mullin's diaries!!

The diaries and dynamics are well written and described. Many of the issues written about are perishable as the newspapers that covered the stories and don't of themselves sustain interest - rather like watching 'Have I got news for You' on Dave.

More daily insights into the workings (or not) of the Blair government and in particular the continuing battle by Campbell to pull together a fractured communications operation while at the same time fighting running battles with a predominantly negative national media. Some useful lessons for anyone trying to manage a communications agenda - and a powerful antidote for anyone hooked on the glamour of political power. Campbell's style takes you straight back to a time before 9/11.
