a real page-turner,
This review is from: DC Confidential (Paperback)
I read this book like a novel, finding it hard to put down. Meyer's opinions and observations are trenchant, funny and naughty. He is not a great stylist - no shortage of cliches here - but his story moves along at a great pace and he emerges as a likeable and insightful person. He clearly relies heavily on his second wife Catherine who is portrayed as beautiful, clever, witty and friendly - almost too good to be true. His first wife gets little mention, though his children by her are mentioned several times. Essential reading for anyone disillusioned with the Blair phenomenon (not to mention Campbell etc) and seeking to understand how the Iraq war could have gone so disastrously wrong.

My view exactly.....and I hope Sir Christopher Meyer is not tarnished by his time at the PCC - and gets down to the serious work of writing more books.
