  • Written with wit and verve, managing to be both inspirational and a cautionary tale

    The Times
  • Macqueen stuffs the book with amusing detail, humorously told

    The Telegraph
  • Well-researched biography ... the course of his narrative is lucid and precise

    The Spectator
  • Wonderfully entertaining, constantly reanimating the period and the places with wit and cunning. No other biography in recent years has left me so wanting to meet its subject

    Mail on Sunday
  • A thoroughly entertaining rummage through the life and times of one of Britain's most eccentric businessmen, it will leave you smiling, sweet-smelling, and ready to storm the history round of your local pub quiz
