Om The Churchill Factor

The must-read biography of the year. Evening Standard Genuinely clever... this book sizzles. The Times Churchill's own energy - his indefatigable pursuit of excitement, glory, place and power - demands a writer of fizz and passion to do history justice. Johnson is that writer. Mail on Sunday A bravura performance...Johnson has not only celebrated Churchill in this book: he has emulated him with comparable panache. Financial Times A characteristically breathless romp through the life and times of our greatest wartime leader...high on entertainment as it is on providing an appraisal of the great man's achievements. Telegraph Readable, engaging and often funny. Evening Standard An engagingly written romp through the elder statesman's greatest achievements. Observer Riveting... Boris is a superb, accessible writer, with an easy, good-humoured touch. Independent The book's style is often chatty, enthusiastic and as funny as you would expect. The Spectator Splendidly enjoyable... It is rare to find a serious study of a politician that's this entertaining. Daily Express In this spirited, entertaining tale... Johnson deftly weaves his narrative between war, politics and personal life. Observer This is a rollicking tale of a political maverick. Radio Times Reading about Churchill is always a delight, and Johnson is an accomplished, accessible writer. Kirkus Reviews Johnson's history of Churchill is well crafted, amply researched, and a pleasure to read. It can serve as a change of pace from more plodding accounts. Library Journal Johnson is a superb writer... Despite the heavy subject matter, The Churchill Factor is a light and quick read. The Globe and Mail A full- throated celebration of human greatness and perhaps the best (and certainly the funniest)...introduction to Churchill yet written. Daily Beast Filled with vivid observations. Washington Post A stunning tour de force... A riveting journalistic portrait of the countless different aspects of the great man's career and personality, to show more vividly than ever how Churchill was one of the most extraordinary human being who has ever lived. Sunday Telegraph
