Taking on the myths and misconceptions along with the outsize reality, Boris Johnson celebrates the singular brilliance of one of the most important leaders of the twentieth century, deftly conveying how his eccentric genius shaped not only his world but our own as well. Fearless on the battlefield and a strategic mastermind, he hated war. He was the most famous journalist of his time and perhaps the greatest orator of all time, despite a lisp and chronic depression. His maneuvering positioned America for entry into World War II, even as it ushered in England's postwar decline. His open-mindedness made him a trailblazer in social welfare, though he remained incorrigibly politically incorrect. Most of all, he was proof that one person - intrepid, ingenious, determined - can make all the difference.
