The must-read biography of the year.
An engagingly written romp through the elder statesman's greatest achievements.
Genuinely clever... this book sizzles.
Churchill's own energy - his indefatigable pursuit of excitement, glory, place and power - demands a writer of fizz and passion to do history justice. Johnson is that writer.
A bravura performance...Johnson has not only celebrated Churchill in this book: he has emulated him with comparable panache.
Riveting...Boris is a superb, accessible writer, with an easy, good-humoured touch.
A characteristically breathless romp through the life and times of our greatest wartime leader...high on entertainment as it is on providing an appraisal of the great man's achievements.
Splendidly enjoyable... It is rare to find a serious study of a politician that's this entertaining.
This is a rollicking tale of a political maverick.
