Charles Williams's thoughtful and well-informed new life... comes as a welcome treat... he captures better than any other writer the tensions between the different facets of Macmillan's personality (SUNDAY TIMES)

Charles Williams' biography is an antidote to nostalgia... a lean compelling narrative with a more detached and critical point of view. (LITERARY REVIEW)

a bright, swift-moving biography, without party-political rancour (DAILY EXPRESS)

[Williams] has produced a biography that... is a model of its kind - diligently researched, gracefully written and never short of absorbing. (Anthony Howard DAILY TELEGRAPH)

a keen eye for personality and drama... this fluid and engaging new biography... give[s] readers a ringside view of the politican in the making. (Frank Trentmann SUNDAY EXPRESS)

a fine achievement, fair in tone and spare in style. This thoroughly absorbing book chronicles the tragic Odyssey of an almost great man. (Kenneth Morgan THE INDEPENDENT)

It is not only well researched and beautifully crafted but also enlivened by the insights of an experienced politician. (Lord Radice HOUSE MAGAZINE)

This new biography... brings the Macmillan era back to life in vivid style. It is a first-class biography... most fascinating of all is the way he describes in great detail, pathos and sympathy the extraordinary emotional tragedy that haunted much of Macmillan's political career (Geoffrey Goodman TRIBUNE)

It is the great contribution of this new biography by a Labour peer to show the role domestic tragedy played in Macmillan's political achievement. (CHURCH OF ENGLAND NEWSPAPER)

In this impressive new biography Charles Williams takes the lid off the figure of Macmillan... This illuminating biography answers many hitherto unanswered questions. (CATHOLIC HERALD)
