Reviews

"A delight for connoisseurs of irreverence (4 stars)" -- Christopher Silvester * Daily Express *
"The book abounds with funny stories...there are three or four juicy details on every page (4 stars)" -- Craig Brown * Mail on Sunday *
"Excellent... By bringing a real historian's discipline to the task, Brendon has unearthed lots of new material, including the first logged double entendre by Margaret "will this gun jerk me off?" Thatcher -" -- Simon Hoggart * Guardian *
"He possesses a sharp eye for illuminating detail and for his subjects' contradictions... Often he is as funny as he is viperfish... If there is plenty of acidity here, there is also fairness" -- John Preston * Sunday Telegraph *
"Entirely refreshing... Steers well clear of reverence... It's all merrily contentious stuff - and Brendon wears his mask of criticism well" -- Bel Mooney * Daily Mail *
