Editorial reviews

A solid summary of Blair's climb to the top of the greasy pole, this collection of the Prime Minister's articles and speeches takes us from his early political beginnings right through to the war in Iraq and the Hutton Inquiry. There's little light relief in this relentless rhetoric, although we are treated to an early copy of Blair's CV in which he hilariously misspells his own name. Perhaps even more embarrassingly, editor Paul Richards (a Labour stalwart) has also included Blair's statement claiming that the Millennium Dome (remember that?) 'will be the envy of the world'. Elsewhere, there's famous sermons on the NHS, crime and 'education, education, education', all of which serves as a useful precis of recent political history. Labour luvvies will obviously lap this up, but there's enough here to satisfy anyone with more than a passing interest in the man running the country. (Kirkus UK)
