Praise for 'Have I Got Views for You': 'Johnson is a good-humoured, entertaining commentator, with an agreeably optimistic bent.'

If Ruth Kelly has an ounce of sense, she will make this book compulsory reading for every 16-year old in the country.' Toby Young, New Statesman 'History comes alive only when written from the heart and Johnson's is full of swashbuckling japes, bloodthirsty yells and energetic sideswipes.' Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday 'Written with all the wit and zest that have helped to make him Britain's favourite celebrity MP.' Tom Holland, Daily Telegraph Praise for Friends, Voters, Countrymen: 'Johnson has cracked the art of making politics invigorating.' Daily Telegraph 'Such an entertaining read.'
