brutal writing style, but liked the gossipy bits

Not exactly unbiased, and written with Black's typical long, convoluted sentences and obscure terms. If you can live with these flaws, it is an interesting and entertaining book. The end flags a bit due to the seemingly endless list of what % of the vote each party got that Black delights in providing.
