‘It’s a pleasure to welcome a biography which is frank about faults but aware of virtues, and is always cool, unhistrionic and unaffected….I believe there’s a prize for the best biography of the year: Mr Croall should be a good runner.’ – Richard Hoggart, Times Educational Supplement

‘This is an outstanding biography. Its balance of sympathy and detachment is just what is needed to enable us to understand the complex and contradictory nature of its subject.’ – John Rae, Listener
