I came across this book and was blown away to find not a single review because this book was excellent. I read it right when it was published after watching a near interrogation of Christopher Meyers on C-Span 3 at a UK government hearing. Well, I watched as Meyers rebutted the panel point-by-point and produced proof that his book had already cleared all legal checks and thus the gov't had no right to obstruct publication further and the book was published months later. The result: a tell-all memoir from a high-ranking British gov't official. The kicker is that Meyers retired early so many of the folks he tells the reader all about still work in government today. And believe me, this author is not bashful in the slightest and obviously wanted to retire forever, if you get my drift. Ok, if you don't, he lets it all hang out: Conversations he had with Tony Blair wile in his underwear; Margaret Thatcher's using sexy legs (no kidding) to woo heads of state; random diplomats flirting with Meyer's wife, etc. Buy it for you next trans-atlantic or trans-continental flight and you will be landing before you know it.
