Praise

Praise for Churchill by Paul Johnson:
 
“Johnson . . . give[s] the reader the definite sense of having known Churchill, or at least of having hung out with him for a bit . . . Churchill lets you spend some time in the man’s company, and who wouldn’t want that?”
New York Times Book Review

“Johnson’s distillation of life lessons from Churchill’s stories career [is written in] . . . vivid prose and [with] consistent intelligence and urbanity.”
—Jon Meacham, Slate.com
 
“[If] you appreciate clarity, authority, and verve in historical writing, you will understand why I gulped down [Churchill] and now declare it the most exciting biography I read in 2009.”
—Jesse Kornbluth, Huffington Post

“Johnson clearly shares and revels in Churchill’s generosity of spirit and limitless intellectual energy. He has produced a book that is a joyand a worthy tribute to both of them.”
Washington Times

“You read Johnson to be provoked and entertained, and on both these scores his biography, like its subject, succeeds wonderfully.”
The American Conservative

“With deft narrative skill and keen insight, Johnson masterfully sketches the phases of Churchill’s life . . . Along the way, Johnson gives us wonderful insights into Churchill’s character . . . Rich with anecdote and quotation, Paul Johnson’s Churchill illustrates the man’s humor, resilience, courage, and eccentricity as no other biography before.”
National Review

“Paul Johnson is the most celebrated and best-loved British historian in America.”
Wall Street Journal
