Okay. I first tried reading this book two years ago after watching Chris Patten in a television interview. I mustn't have been in the right frame of mind while reading his book, because I found him difficult and pedantic.

Two years later, I just can't get enough. Chris Patten is a maestro with words - his words are precise and his sentences economical, yet it sometimes reads like poetry. He is very dry, and can be very, very funny. He is, indeed, nobody's poodle.
