PRAISE FOR COURAGE: 'His approach is refreshing ... readable and intelligent' Sunday Times 'The book tells us as much about Brown's own personal journey as it does about the courage of those he describes ... very moving' Guardian 'Extremely well-written: aphoristic, evocative and, most surprisingly of all, pacy ... a page-turner. Trust me: this is a fine book' Spectator
