Theres no denying that Rory Stewart stands almost alone among British politicians: hes one of a handful who can actually turn a phrase. That talent is put to good use here no other account of how Cameron Toryism curdled into May and Johnson is likely to be as evocative or amusing as this one * The Times, *The Times Political Book of the Year* * If you want to better understand the catastrophe that has been our government since 2010, or you just want to bask in Stewarts beautifully formulated prose, read this book * New Statesman, *Books of the Year* * A brilliant insiders account of the Cameron-May-Johnson years * FT, *Books of the Year* * It is the sheer sharpness, originality and truth-telling grace of Stewarts prose, along with the vital importance of his subject, that makes his new book a truly exceptional political autobiography, both a pleasure to read, and a vital wake-up call * Scotsman, *Books of the Year* * Full of sharp observations and often funny a portrait of a country where power is wielded by empty careerists, working in a broken system * Financial Times, *Books of the Year* * Beautifully written... You glimpse how transformative government could be -- Gaby Hinsliff * Guardian, *Books of the Year* * A fascinating account of power, corruption and lies * i, *Books of the Year* * Stewart writes beautifully and is brilliant at describing both the theatre and insanity of life in politics * Daily Express, *Books of the Year* * [Stewarts] memoir of his time in politics is valuable as a slice of entertainment, as an enjoyably catty takedown of his former colleagues, and as perhaps the most helpful recent account of the failings of the British state a valuable contribution to the historical record * Sunday Times, *Political Book of the Year* * The moral and technical seriousness of this book should not be ignored: in his time in parliamentary politics, Stewart discovered a lot that needs mendingand he has plenty of ideas for doing so * Prospect, *Books of the Year* *
