About the book: 
A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
 
A concise, sharp-witted and illuminating account of the lives of  Britain’s prime ministers from Walpole to May, illustrated  by Martin Rowson.
 
For the reader who has heard of such giants as Gladstone and Disraeli,  and has drunk in a pub called the Palmerston, but has only the haziest  idea of who these people were, Gimson’s Prime Ministers offers a  short account of them all which can be read for pleasure, and not just  for edification. With Gimson’s wonderful prose once again complemented  by Martin Rowson’s inimitable illustrations, this lively and  entertaining aide-memoire and work of satirical genius brings our  parliamentary history to life as never before.
