Reviews

"Magnificent... A compelling account of a remarkable life" * Observer * "Campbell is simply a master of the art... This book is effortlessly superior." -- Dominic Sandbrook * Sunday Times * "Marvellous... The highest praise I can give to John Campbell's biography is that Roy Jenkins would have been proud to have been its author." -- Alan Johnson * Guardian * "A riveting and vital contribution to an understanding of postwar British politics." -- Matthew Engel * Financial Times * "A wonderful, readable book. Jenkins himself would have been proud to have produced a masterpiece of this calibre." -- Leo McKinstry * Daily Express * "Captivating... I read every single one of the 749 pages of this long book with relish and fascination. It is a splendid tribute to one of the greatest British politicians and writers (not necessarily in that order) of the last century." -- Peter Oborne * Daily Telegraph * "Magnificent... As plump and benign as its subject." -- A N Wilson * Evening Standard * "A splendidly thorough biography." -- Craig Brown * Mail on Sunday * "Campbell is an excellent biographer. He has a strong narrative grasp and knows how to use evidence. His books are not showy, but if you test their propositions, you almost always find them fair." -- Charles Moore * Daily Telegraph * "Wonderful... It is the well-rounded life of its subject that makes this book such an entertaining, as well as an instructive, read." -- Rachel Sylvester * The Times * "One of the best political biographies you could hope to read." * Sunday Times *
