"Who is Margaret Thatcher/ Her influence on politics is well documented - not least by Lady Thatcher herself.  What few have attempted before award-winning biographer Brenda Maddox, is to present the personal story of the woman who has been described as 'the most significant Englishwoman since Elizabeth I'.
What kind of person was she that she could overcome her background, the snobbery of Oxford University and then of the Conservative party?  Brenda Maddox's achievement is to show how the Iron Lady created herself, with the assistance of both parents and her husband.
Combining new research undertaken by production company Brook Lapping for the ITV1 series MAGGIE with her own analysis, Brenda Maddox traces the life of the grocer's daughter fro Grantham who became the most successful Conservative Prime Minister of the twentieth century.  Unprecedented access to people who have known her throughout her life (some who have never spoken before) enables the author to tell the personal story of a public life."
