'compelling.. a dense , exhaustively, well-researched portrait .. a persuasive, ultimately rather sad portrait of a North London Jewish boy.' --Sunday Times
'a remarkable portrait of a complex and Coleridgean figure.' 5 stars --Telegraph
'An admirably thorough job of a biography: sympathetic, deeply researched, informed by long conversations with Miller and dozens of friends, colleagues and, occasionally, enemies.' --The Spectator
'Sir Jonathan Miller is a remarkable man. As one of the great egocentrics of his generation, he would not question this judgement... Ms Bassett's first-class authorised biography does not mask Sir Jonathan's weaknesses, but she says that, in conversation, his flaws seem more tragicomic than intolerable the bile and bitterness never quite obliterate the man's warmth.' --The Economist
'Kate Bassett's absorbing, in-depth and erudite biography of Miller ... produce(s) an appealingly multifaceted figure of a man' --The Observer
'Kate Bassett's brilliant, exhaustively researched biography gathers it all together and reminds us what a truly astonishing man he is.' --Jewish Chronicle
