I bought this book to assist me completing a dissertaion for my BA. It is without doubt the most comprehensive, thoroughly researched, even handed account of Lord Leverhulme and his company, Lever Brothers Ltd. (before it merged with Dutch Unie to create Unilever) I have read. For anyone interested in the story of a remarkable man in remarkable times I cannot recommend this book strongly enough. Thank you, Prof. Brian Lewis and Manchester University Press, for this engrossing book.
