Gripping and comprehensive read about the rise and fall of Cameron – infamously, this was the book that was sensationalised for the appendage/dead pig/mouth story. But more insightfully it detailed a portrait of Cameron being a near-effortlessly talented politician, with the will to ruthlessly get to the top and then no ideas about what to do once he got here. Equally interesting was the appendix which characterised Ashcroft’s opinion polling data, which to my mind painted a much more interesting picture of the sorts of data insights it’s possible to get.
