One of Alastair Campbell's favourite books.

With over a million copies sold, several literary prizes in the bag and now Barack Obama's comment that this is the book he could not live without in the White House, this must be the book to read about Abrahma Lincilon and his politics. He realised that by appointing his fiercest rivals to key cabinet poisitons he would be creating the strongest and safest cabinet to run the country. A fascinating insight in to one of the greatest politicians the world has seen.
