A frank and dry account of the 'Telegraph years'. Hastings details his experience as an unlikely candidate for Editor of the failing Daily Telegraph, at the helm through the decade where it once again affirmed it's place at the top of the broadsheet tree. Hastings lays bare his dislike for John Major as a politician, and demonstrates, perhaps most interestingly, his obvious deep affection, and love, for Diana, Princess of Wales. An excellent account of a decade behind the scenes at a national newspaper, in which political and global change was abundant.
