Reads as self justification to his critics rather than an honest appraisal of his time as prime minister Some aspects were interesting, however, I was hoping for honesty For example, the referendum was arguably the single most debated and controversial decision he made, inflicting turmoil on the nation before instantly resigning to leave others to sort it out He pretends that it was the right decision which he stands by I believe this defies logic and is trying to justify what was a selfish gamble to retain power It is a semi interesting read, but expect he self justification rather than a balanced and honest account of his time in politics. Cameron s bombshells and detail of his way to the top make a great read Would highly recommend to anyone interested in Conservative politics There s been lot of detail around the 2010 general election so far during my read, thoroughly enjoying it. An indepth study into the mind of a leader.From love, life, laughter and hedonistic naivety Intermingled with illicit chemicals and ruthless disregard.As he romps his way through social, economical and educational privelage.For the sake of impartiality I must also add I wholeheartedly recommend to gain a valuable insight into his version of events Be as it may, his prime ministership is likely to be remembered for one monumentous decision and the disunity that followed. What a fascinating book , 10 10 what an amazing coincidence that this brilliant book came out at the exact same time as Cameron making regular appearances on TV this magical chance encounter of him speaking about his heartfelt regret over the referendum at the same time as his book coming out i would never of known about this amazing book to read.
