Product description

Review

"This book is a winning project in its own right… I was captivated with the simplicity of the messages and the rich illustrations learned from many lives . . . Alastair Campbell deserves congratulations on an engaging text that can help other talented and committed people with potential for success to become winners themselves." (Aldwyn Cooper Huffington Post)

"Law firm leaders preparing for 2016 should read Winners by Alastair Campbell…Campbell tells a fine political anecdote and reports perceptively on interviews with captains of industry, but is most inspiring on sport... Books on strategy and team-working can be heavy-going but he maintains a light touch; and in Adam Smith’s words, gives us some of that “vicarious pleasure” derived from closely observing the “rich and great”." (Richard Sussking The Times)

"Compelling" (Guardian)

"You cannot read Alastair Campbell’s Winners and How They Succeed without being impressed by how many high achievers he knows. This is a handbook for anyone who would like to be like them" (Andy McSmith Independent, Books of the Year)

"One of the most interesting people in Britain and this book is one of the most interesting about winners." (Gavin Esler)

Although not a guy I agree with politically, Campbell hits the nail on the head with this. I'm not a huge reader of self help books but this is a fantastic mix of real world and educational insight. I loved it.

Whilst I'm not a fan of Alastair Campbell's political persuasions - I'm a massive fan of this book.

Campbell has done his research and found a wide and varied degree of "winners". Be it sporting, business, fashion etc.... as a reader you should be able to find someone or something to relate to and bring your own situation into focus. This is a very consuming and motivational book. I could not put it down - and found myself recommending it to other like minded people as myself. As a business owner I have highlighted a large amount of this book for motivational work both for personal use as well as for my colleagues.

I don't often write Amazon reviews but just felt that this is to good a book not to.

Buy it - you won't be disappointed.

Overall this is a good read although the points made are relatively subjective, there is not any scientific numbers to back up the many statements made. Overall it's a good insight into some interesting and successful people and I would recommend it.

Dropped a star on the review because the author is very bias on his politics which is quite intrusive.

Not a fan of New Labour, competitive sport, self-help books or indeed people who describe themselves as 'winners'? It really doesn't matter.

Alastair Campbell's foray into motivational writing is good enough to leave all such self-limiting prejudices floundering in its wake. This is an excellent book.

'Winners' reaches places perhaps unanticipated by its author. I turned to it, almost by accident, in the midst of minor personal crisis totally unrelated to football, cycling or geopolitics: my problem was a contentious local planning dispute. The whole thing was getting me down. I felt increasingly powerless, victimised by circumstances beyond my control and unable to see a positive way forward.

Does 'Winners' give an insight, however indirectly, into what Tony Blair got from Alastair Campbell during those long-ago days of refulgent Labour success? Certainly, it feels that way. Reading 'Winners' is rather like having a trusted, plain-speaking, sometimes pretty merciless friend standing by my side, telling me to get myself together, think strategically and act purposefully. It's all good advice. It also works.

As befits an extremely successful journalist, speech-writer and spin doctor, Campbell writes clearly and forcefully. His examples and case-studies, gathered from sport, politics and personal experience, are well-chosen, memorable and sometimes surprising, e.g. a life-long republican's encomium to HM the Queen. If some of his basic points are rather simple, isn't this generally true of helpful advice?

The best thing about this book may well be its tone, though.

I found this an intriguing book. It is well worth a read for anyone who holds or aspires to a leadership role. Having recently retired from school headship there are ideas I would have used in post. I also liked the occasional political snippets. A really good read if you are interested in what makes and shapes a good leader.

...business books I have ever read. Even though it is not categorised as a business book as someone who has owned and run their own business for 16 years I found this one of the most insightful reads I have had - particularly from a team management perspective. Everything in it sets off bells ringing in my head. I couldn't recommend it more!

Not an Alastair Campbell fan but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lots of insightful stories about lots of different people. I found myself intrigued about people I thought I had not interest in. Well worth a read.
