"The Downing Street Years is, first and foremost, a brilliant first-hand portrayal of the events and personalities of her years in power.  She gives riveting accounts of the great and critical moments of her premiership - the three election victories, the Falklands War, the Miners' Strike, the Brighton Bomb, the Westland Affair, her battles abroad with foreign federalists and at home with faint-hearted or misguided ministers.  Her judgements of the men and women she has encountered, whether world statesmen of Cabinet colleagues, are completely, sometimes brutally, frank.  She is lavish with praise where it is due; devastating in her criticism when it is not.  The book ends with an account of her last days which is as gripping as anything in thriller fiction."
