Alastair Campbell graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in modern languages. He worked for Blair, first as his press secrtary, then as official spokesman and director of communications and strategy from 1994 to 2003. He has been engaged in writing, public speaking, working for Leukaemia Research as chairman of fundraising, and continuing to advise Blair, Gordon Brown and other leading Labour figures. His first novel, All In The Mind, and an accompanying award-winning TV documentary, Cracking Up, led to him being voted Mind Champion of the Year. A second novel, Maya, was published earlier this year.Review:
