    No one can deny that Margaret Thatcher was a divisive figure As so often, I m somewhere in the middle To me, Thatcher has qualities that one can admire, even if one isn t supportive to put it mildly of everything she did As an autobiography, it s wholly unsurprising that it is her positive attributes that tend to shine through here.It seems a little unfair to compare prime ministerial autobiographies, but with Tony Blair s relatively fresh in my mind, it is hard to resist Poor writing makes Blai [...]

    Well, this is two books stuck together Path to Power and The downing Street years To read this I suppose you would have to have an interest in politics and Maggie herself I really enjoyed this book but in two parts The first part because it were the Path to Power and dealt with her road to Number 10 The second part was book two the Downing Street Years which was of what I remember of her Interesting reasd, though some of the politics got a little boring but not much Over all a great read and up [...]

    As the Baroness herself says in the book I am not introspective by nature and this is probably the main fault of the book as you really don t get much below the surface of things in her remarkable life For example we never know much about Denis, and practically nothing about Mark or Carol It really is a remarkable story from the corner grocers shop to global figure, all told in her relentless driving way Many times she remarks on how she was opposed on an issue by someone, or some group, but the [...]

    Greatest Prime Minister in British history The autobiography is incredibly detailed, making it at times heavy, however ignoring the details would be an injustice to her time and efforts that made her such a formidable woman The first book of two within the autobiography is easier to digest and about her personal life leading up to how she became Prime Minister, the second is a detailed account of politics in the 80s and how she made tough decisions Well worth a read, though potentially tough on [...]

    Margaret Thatcher was a woman of conviction and sharp thinking She was a great leader who achieved success in politics, economics, and world affairs In this book, she is clear and laser focused While reading I feel like I was there looking at the turn of events, moment by moment as a spectator of one of the greatest political events in recent memory.

    This book is a must read for anyone with an interest in politics and economics I m thoroughly in awe of the Iron Lady, her ideas, her deeds and her belief in herself I wish the leaders of today had as much merit

    A good insight so far, but quite detailed Amazing how forward thinking this woman was when we consider the problems we are experiencing just in the last half a decade I believe, The greatest prime minister that Britain has seen and her strength and focus was truly inspiring given what she had to stand up to She took us out of the brink of the dark ages and contributed to us completely turning around our economy we are now prosperous.Book Now completed Very, very detailed and some of the economic [...]

    The book is very well written and engrossing though some of it s a bit inpenetrable if you don t understand economic theory or have an understanding of the wider politics of the time Overall it s very interesting to read and it chronicles the rise and fall of one of the politicians who shaped the modern age I would have liked coverage of certain sections and perhaps some about her underlying philosophy but a lot of that would probably be found in other books In conclusion a good read overall, [...]

    A very well written autobiography by Margaret Thatcher, the first and only female prime minister in Britain She detailed her life from his upbringing to his political career She was not perfect and she admitted her convictions but she was truly inspiring and had to strength to turn Britain from the brink of destruction to one of the most prosperous countries in the world.The autobiography could have really been shorter but it was still an enjoyable read.

    I found this book very informative, but I have to admit the fact that it was almost all politics and little personal was a minus for me I wanted to know about her personally, and didn t get that I m not an economist, or well versed in those types of issues, and found some of the chapters that dealt with them almost beyond my comprehension.

    I frankly enjoyed this attractive book, I recommend reading of this book to my dear friend Saher who like the autobiography of the effective people in our wold Nabil Alsagheer

    A good story but terribly written Did not motivate me to pick it up and start from where I had stopped.

    Too much politics What was I thinking Two volumes, over 800 pages I m sure it s a fascinating read but I can t stay awake .
