Oooh ... exciting. If this is halfway readable, it's going straight onto my TBR. (And of course, by "exciting", I'm referring *exclusively* to the book -- not to the prospect that inspired your choice in the first place.)

Yeah, I knew you were referring to the book. ;) I manged to read the introductory chapter at Books & Beans when I picked it up and was really excited about it. I don't think this will be a straight history book - more like a biographical character study, but who knows. The introductory chapter starts with Disraeli's funeral and Gladstone trying to digest the news and preparing to react to it in public. It was a very engaging introduction.
Fingers crossed that's indicative of the entire book, then!
