Even if you know nothing about UK politics, this is a must read and one that I think most will find enjoying in that it is not your typical politician's biography. I have always admired Paddy Ashdown and I came away with an even greater appreciation after reading this book. He stands apart from most politicians in not only his much varied background and experience but also in his candidness.

Though I would have liked to have learned more about his parliamentary and election experiences, he provides a riveting account of his military and diplomatic career. It also left me with a greater understanding of his nuances. In turn, I came away at times disagreeing with him yet appreciating him in a way that one cannot acquire from speeches and interviews.
