Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was a good book that delved into Churchill’s personality and statesmanship.

I’ve always wanted to know more about him, so this was a good, short, easy-to-read book that gave me more information about him. There are a lot of cites in the book, however, so at times it felt like I was reading a term paper rather than a book. Also, the forward and introduction were way too long. (The book didn’t start until 8%.)

I didn’t realize he had such a contentious relationship with so many people in government, or that he suffered from so many personal demons. It’s a testament to his strength that he was able to accomplish so much.

Thank you to NetGalley and Frontline Books for the free digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
