A splendid biography, which deals justly and fairly with all the controversies of Gladstone’s life … It is a notable achievement and will not be easily superseded.
Roy Jenkins has written many good books. This is his best. It is beyond praise.
Inspired by affection for his tremendous subject, the author has scaled the heights with panache … [Jenkins’s] evident delight in the man and his story carry the reader along as though on the crest of a wave.
Jenkins is a master of irony … This helps to make the book enormous fun to read, while it is also enlightening in any number of ways.
