The must-read biography of the year. * Evening Standard *
Genuinely clever... this book sizzles. * The Times *
Churchill's own energy - his indefatigable pursuit of excitement, glory, place and power - demands a writer of fizz and passion to do history justice. Johnson is that writer. * Mail on Sunday *
A bravura performance...Johnson has not only celebrated Churchill in this book: he has emulated him with comparable panache. * Financial Times *
A characteristically breathless romp through the life and times of our greatest wartime leader...high on entertainment as it is on providing an appraisal of the great man's achievements. * Telegraph *
Readable, engaging and often funny. * Evening Standard *
An engagingly written romp through the elder statesman's greatest achievements. * Observer *
Riveting...Boris is a superb, accessible writer, with an easy, good-humoured touch. * Independent *
The book's style is often chatty, enthusiastic and as funny as you would expect. * The Spectator *
Splendidly enjoyable... It is rare to find a serious study of a politician that's this entertaining. * Daily Express *
In this spirited, entertaining tale... Johnson deftly weaves his narrative between war, politics and personal life. * Observer *
This is a rollicking tale of a political maverick. * Radio Times *
Reading about Churchill is always a delight, and Johnson is an accomplished, accessible writer. * Kirkus Reviews *
Johnson's history of Churchill is well crafted, amply researched, and a pleasure to read. It can serve as a change of pace from more plodding accounts. * Library Journal *
Johnson is a superb writer... Despite the heavy subject matter, The Churchill Factor is a light and quick read. * The Globe and Mail *
A full-throated celebration of human greatness and perhaps the best (and certainly the funniest)...introduction to Churchill yet written. * Daily Beast *
Filled with vivid observations. * Washington Post *
A stunning tour de force... A riveting journalistic portrait of the countless different aspects of the great man's career and personality, to show more vividly than ever how Churchill was one of the most extraordinary human being who has ever lived. * Sunday Telegraph *
Churchill was the most brilliant maverick of his generation, so who better to write about him than the most brilliant maverick of our own? Breezy, witty and shrewdly observant. * Mail on Sunday *
