The book follows Tony Blair's career as PM. The author chose to focus on one subject at a time rather than recount in chronological order. I found this a little annoying first but actually it works to great effect when covering major subjects such as The Troubles, Iraq, Europe, Brown, spin, etc. I'm actually impressed how Boulton gives a pretty objective account when his wife was very closely involved with New Labour and the Blair regime in particular. Having said that, the book only confirms things that most people know about Tony Blair with very little new things to offer apart from background research on the people and events that affected Tony Blair's political career. Overall, a fairly good read but do not expect it to uncover any mysteries.
