David Cameron has recently emerged as the first Tory leader in years to come across as a man of the people, an ordinary man in a traditionally reviled political position. This biography reveals more about the man behind the spin, and the first Tory figure in recent times to have a chance of leading the party to victory. It explores the future direction of the Conservatives and looks at several important questions: Is the current honeymoon evidence of a new Tory Party, or simply recognition that the appearance of newness is needed? Will he really be prepared to jeopardize the support of the traditional grass roots? How deep are his environmental credentials? How will he react when the press turns nasty? Does his success mark a return of the old class deference? Or is it the opposite, a sign that background, for better or worse, is now unimportant?

Francis Elliott writes for the Independent.Review:
'Provides many insights...The authors underline the hard ambition and calculation behind the surface charm, raising fascinating questions about what Cameron might be like as Prime Minister.' Peter Riddell, The Times 'If anyone doubts Cameron's classic Tory credentials, then this highly rewarding biography lays out the story brilliantly.' Sunday Telegraph 'This readable and well-researched biography provides real insight into the great white hope of the Conservative party.' Observer (Books of the Year) 'This essential political textbook will be required reading for every journalist covering David Cameron's every move until the general election.' Independent
