Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me inspired. Although it did make me want to cry. As a honest MP like this is few and far between.

I was upset when it came to the end.

A politicians story

At first I did not take to this book but gave it a second chance and enjoyed it. The insights found here e.g. his experience with the queen and political life in general you don't come across every day.
