‘The definitive history of New Labour to date’ Siôn Simon, Times Literary Supplement

‘A meticulously detailed, objective but sympathetic biography’ Joe Haines, Sunday Times

‘A painstaking, fascinating study, written with pace and sensitivity’ Ben Pimlott, Independent

‘A monumental work… destined to become to New Labour what Hugo Young’s One Of Us was to early Thatcherism’ Derek Draper, Spectator

‘As was expected from a journalist of Don Macintyre’s quality – it is far more than a carefully slanted gossip column. Mr Mandelson’s generosity with time and access to his papers has guaranteed that some of his self-serving messages from the political grave have been published. This is a meticulous account of Mandelson’s life and work… the story of intrigue, manipulation and the calculation of political odds’ Roy Hattersley, Independent on Sunday

‘Macintyre has a wicked eye for the telling cameo’ Ian Macintyre, The Times

‘‘Like all the best biographies, it is as much about an age as it is about a man. The author has treated us to the most well-informed account yet of the creation and workings of Tony Blair’s government…the sheer intimacy of the detail, from Blair’s private correspondence to accounts of ultra-secret discussions with senior New Labour figures, is staggering’ Sebastian Hamilton, Scotland On Sunday
