Praise for "Margaret Thatcher: The Grocer's Daughter":
"Even-handed and readable, even compelling. Campbell's research is huge and he lifts the lid on plenty of political skulduggery of the 1960s and 1970s: the book has real sweep in its record of a modern myth." -- "Financial Times"
"If the second volume is as well and clearly written as this one, it is something to look forward to eagerly." -- "TLS"
"A triumph." -- "Spectator"
"Campbell is not only a meticulous scholar, he is an uncommonly vivid writer." -- "Sunday Times"
