Rejecting the constraints of formal biography, Anthony Seldon has produced a profile of the Prime Minister that rewrites the bibliography of Blair studies. Focusing on the interplay between the key episodes of his life and career and the key personalities with whom he has surrounded himself, it assesses the Blair psychology in all its forms and explains the motivation of the man destined to be the last British Prime Minister to command a world stage. It also draws on previously unpublished diaries and documents and is based on 600 original interviews with those who have known and worked with Blair, including many at the heart of government. Gripping and revelatory, it is a major book about the man who has shaped modern Britain.

Comprehensively researched, succinct and highly informative. Literally can't wait to read 'unbound' now. When you finish reading it you will also be far from surprised that Gordon Brown is failing as PM. Read full review
