PressestimmenNew Statesman, review by David Steel (leader of the Liberal Party between 1976-1988): "thoroughly researched political assessment." "Barberis reveals much about his earlier life of which I was ignorant." "Barberis clarifies for a younger generation just how visionary Grimond was." "What Barberis captures well is Grimond's extraordinary life"; London Review of Books, 5th May 2005. Review by Peter Clarke; "A well researched account of Grimond's career, presenting a sympathetic view of him while not flinching from asking some awkward questions, though generally on matters that would be regarded as tactical rather than strategic. It doesn't openly proclaim a big-L-Liberal allegiance but its small-l-liberal perspective is manifest throughout."
