There's probably no other statesman in the 20th century who has had such a rich life, and probably no more entertaining biography narrating it. But that's for historians and literary critics to judge. I've found it very instructive and highly entertaining, and couldn't help but admire Robert Whitfield's performance in reading it out loud. The countless quotations are all delivered in a special voice reflecting the character of the personality who enunciated it, and the spirit in which it was pronounced, without interfering with the steady pace of the narrative. Most importantly, all quotations of the Great Man Himself are delivered in a very successful imitation of his voice. Not only adds it greatly to the entertainment value, it also makes the narrative easier to follow. This is quite an achievement. The book is a must-have for audio book lovers and Churchill fans.
