Praise for The Blair Years

A classic text of the you-are-there school of politics at work. Surely a valuable source for scholars to scour for many years to come. One of the most compelling reads of history in the raw. A behind-the-scenes look at dramatic junctures in recent history. "

A fascinating front row seat. --Tina Brown, author of THE DIANA CHRONICLES"

A classic text of the you-are-there school of politics at work. Surely a valuable source for scholars to scour for many years to come. One of the most compelling reads of history in the raw. A behind-the-scenes look at dramatic junctures in recent history.

The Blair Years pays off in immediacy and candor. Refreshingly unvarnished. "

Great winners have taught Campbell an important lesson: 'You can always do better.' Excellent book.

Enlightening. Campbell s informative and entertaining book offers a treasure trove of insights that are sure to increase the reader s odds of achieving success."

Campbell was one of the architects behind Blair's meteoric praise. He knows a winner when he sees one. Just the right amount can provide the perfect cocktail for success.

Surely a valuable source for scholars to scour for many years to come. One of the most compelling reads of history in the raw. A behind-the-scenes look at dramatic junctures in recent history.

A fascinating front row seat.--Tina Brown, author of 'The Diana Chronicles' [praise for 'The Blair Years']

Enlightening. Campbell's informative and entertaining book offers a treasure trove of insights that are sure to increase the reader's odds of achieving success.

Beyond question the most important and revelatory book written so far about the inner workings of Blair's government. By turns brilliant, combative, demotic and emotional.

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.

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.

This is one of the best books on how to be good at something that I've ever read. The fact he brings different people into this shows a lot of different takes in one book, rather than just what he's learnt from his own experiences (which love or loathe him, Alastair Campbell definitely has experienced enough to write this based on his own life, but he doesn't.)

The other thing I really liked about this is it's to the point and approachable to ordinary people. A lot of books that could be put into the "how to be successful" category are filled to the brim with fluff taken straight out of Oprah, this doesn't have any of that cringeworthy stuff at all.

If you're interested in how winners think differently or how you can copy the best a bit, buy it. There's no politics in it, so even if you think AC is an evil spin doctor you'll still find it interesting.

This book isn't for you though if you think everyone who ever did well in life was evil.

I read books about improvement, success, business systems and processes and do so at the rate of about a book a week. It's fair to say I have read much and have seen some good and some not so good. I would rate this book as superb. Over 400 pages and packed with information and analysis of successful people, how they did, their motivation and the lessons we can learn from them. I really could not find fault with it. Buy it.

Note: Note: Amazon now has a policy that ensures preferential placement only of reviews of books that have been purchased from Amazon. Reviews by those who receive copies as gifts, borrow copies from friends or check them out of libraries then follow. A really dumb policy.

Alistair Campbell carefully organized and then presents his material within four Parts. To his substantial credit, he anchors his insights and real-world human experience in which various “winners” demonstrate, indeed personify the mindsets and modus operandi to which the title of my brief commentary refers.

Several of the winners are familiar. They include (in alpha order) Jeff Bezos, Bono, Tom Brady, Warren Buffett, Nadia Comaneci, Ariana Huffington, Michael Jordan, Nelson Mandela, Angela Merkel, Barack Obama, Kevin Spacey, Anna Wintour, and Tiger Woods. Many of the other winners are unfamiliar, at least to me until reading about them. However different the featured winners may be in most respects, all of them share certain defining characteristics that Campbell examines.

What do these winners defeat? With rare exception, they have faced and overcome challenges that almost everyone encounters at one time or another. At least temporarily, they felt self-doubt and disappointment after setbacks, for example, but then they bounced back, guided and informed by the lessons they learned. Winners are persistent. They have courage that overcomes – rather than eliminates -- fear and self-doubt.

Tiger Woods never competed against other golfers. Rather, he competed against the exceptionally high standards he set for himself. For Woods and countless other peak performers, “losing” is making anything less than a best effort.
