Just who is the secret political adviser calling himself The Man in the Room Next Door? No one knows. We don't even know his name.

But now the lid is about to be blown clean off, because the secret files of the world's most influential* political media adviser are published in this book. Packed with letters, memos, texts, tweets, emails, journal entries, leaked documents and crude doodles, these pages will reveal who The Man in the Room Next Door is and, more importantly, his thoughts on those who employ his services, including Donald 'dangerous puffin' Trump, Boris 'posh motorboat' Johnson and some of the their least competent colleagues.

This book is the evidence that anyone can be a world leader. Just as long as they're wearing the right earpiece.

Reviews for The Secret Political Adviser: The Unredacted Files of the Man in the Room Next Door

Praise for Michael Spicer: Hilarious . . . turn[s] bumbling speeches into comedy gold * * Evening Standard * * Michael Spicer's hilarious trove of emails, texts and diary entries reveal more of the man in the Room Next Door and the perils and pratfalls of being a political adviser. I grinned throughout like a loon. The book that governments wouldn't want you to see. So see it! -- SANJEEV BHASKAR This is the sort of book you might read on public transport and then spend the entire journey trying to stifle laughter. Spicer is a FUNNY MAN. This is going to be under a lot of Christmas trees this year and rightly so. It is a Treat -- DIANE 'PHILOMENA CUNK' MORGAN
