"Fascinating to read the private notes and pleasures of this highly decorated and established man." - Goodreads Review.
"Mary Soames gives a quietly unobtrusive account of her father, which nonetheless captures a revealing portrait of the great man. A delightful and highly informative read." - Amazon Review.
