the book arrived on time and in good condition. The biography itself is nicely written: the author keeps a good balance together with a perceptive commentary on the events that occur in the life story of BC.
Read this book more than 15 years ago and found it such an inspirational read about such an inspirational woman. Barbara Castle was a woman who made it in a man's world. She has been a mover and shaker for the whole of her life. Though having a hint of Thatcher about her she never lost her feel for the common man or woman (or stopped being a socialist!).
