Product description

Review

Rob Wilson is rapidly becoming one of the best-informed and most acute observers of Westminster politics. He brings the extra insights and instincts of a player with inside access to the heart of government. --Michael Crick, Political Correspondent, Channel 4 News

A very well-written, important and authentic book … Everyone interested in contemporary politics should study it. --Peter Oborne, Chief Political Commentator at The Daily Telegraph

[A] fascinating curiosity that fills in invaluable details about what was happening behind the scenes while the pack of Westminster journalists [...] was hunting its quarry... He focuses on scandals there are delicious details... Wilson writes fluidly and with compassion, and has coaxed more from his subjects than many journalists would have... This book is a welcome reminder that our politicians are human beings, too. Wilson's achievement is to show us that some are more human than others. --Tim Shipman, Sunday Times

5/5 The Eye of the Storm has been paid the greatest compliment a piece of political journalism can be paid: Downing Street tried to suppress it … [A] well-written, behind-the-scenes account. --The Telegraph

A hugely entertaining read. --Good Book Guide

About the Author

Rob Wilson was elected to Parliament in 2005 after a successful business career. He served as an opposition whip and higher education spokesman before becoming Parliamentary Private Secretary to Jeremy Hunt at the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and later at the Department of Health following the formation of the creation of the Lib Dem Conservative coalition in 2010. In September 2013, Rob was appointed Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne. Rob also wrote a critically acclaimed book on the formation of the coalition government entitled 5 Days to Power: The Journey to Coalition Britain, published by Biteback in 2010.
