Reviews for Margaret Thatcher: The Authorized Biography: Volume Two

An awesomely thorough and authoritative portrait ... the definitive explanation of the strange person who most shaped modern Britain. -- Andy Beckett * Guardian * Moore's project is a study of detailed depth, and fine and transparent judgements, which rises to the largeness of a figure and a time that were of world significance. -- John Lloyd * FT * This is a magnificent piece of work, and when he has completed it with the third volume, Moore will have done the justice she deserves to a great Prime Minister. -- William Waldegrave * Evening Standard * One of the great biographical achievements of our times. -- Dominic Sandbrook * Sunday Times *
