Customer Review

on 2 July 2011
This is a well written book which reveals,I believe,the true personality of Michael Foot. Inevitably he becomes very dretailked about ncertain important political events in his life. The detailed workings of industrial relations, and the creation of legislation in relation to trade unions, for me were rather dry and turgid, but nonetheless needed to be dealt with, if one was to understand the man. The book devoted,obviously, space to the role of Jill Craigie, who I knew very little about.The coverage of his literary achievements were covered well, and gave a good insight into another side of his personna. I have always believed that Michael Foot was a very principled man, who believed and held strong views about particular issues, although I did not agree with them, I admired someone who could hold such strong, and in most cases loife long held views and opinions.
This book covered all aspects of Michael Foot,s life, although slanted more to the historical/political/social aspect rather than the scandal that occured in his life, and much could be made of the ones that did occur, Kenneth Morgan avoided making them a central and integral part, they were events that happened in a long and eventful life. A good solid read.
