"Splendid . . . What makes this book much more than just a relaxed, racy biography is the way its author brings to life not just the man but also the time in which he lived." -- Colin McDowell, "Sunday Times"
"A superlative book . . . thoughtful, absorbing and hugely diverting. Besides an astute biography, we get a panorama of the times . . . Lushly illustrated, carefully researched, and intelligently argued, this biography will entertain and enlighten." -- George Walden, "Daily Mail" (London)
