Reviews

"An excellent, all-embracing new biography."--The New York Times

"[An] imposing, yet nimbly written, biography [that] dwarfs the field . . . a most satisfying and enjoyable read, one to be savored at length."--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Fascinating . . . After sixty years on the throne, the monarch of Britain is better known for her poker face than for sly wit or easy charm. Yet in biographer Sally Bedell Smith's Elizabeth the Queen, Her Majesty sparkles with both."--More

"Smith breaks new ground, [with the cooperation of] more than two hundred people, [including] the Queen's relatives and friends. . . . [A] smart and satisfying book."--Los Angeles Times

"A fresh and admiring look at Elizabeth II, a woman whose life has been chronicled in numerous books, but perhaps never with such intimacy."--Richmond Times-Dispatch
