"The sweep of the collection is impressive."

This collection is more than an introduction but a bit less than a fully developed consideration. It has much to offer, but I suspect that Vince Cable will offer even more in the stream of books and essays that will follow as the political sword is rested and a prolific pen takes its place.

"Cable is best on the subject to which he is closest"

Some of Cable’s historical chapters are good, but the only one of his subjects who comes to life is Thatcher. It may be that she had the strongest emotional attachment to her economics, which she viewed in moral terms — free-market economics was right because it encouraged people to stand on their own two feet, rewarded people who worked hard and punished the feckless and lazy — or it may be that Cable is best on the subject to which he is closest.
