    1. For the serious history buff. More detail than you thought you could learn about this Titan of the 20th Century. This multi-volume biography takes the reader through the stages of Churchill's life. This volume establishes the character of the man by examining his home life, education and early career in the military and as a journalist war reporter.

    2. GreatI wish the editors lived in the 21st century. But, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Definitely worth reading in your spare time.

    3. An interesting concept where this is set-up through a series of letters to and from different people to give a sense of Churchill's first 26 years and it works really well.Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was born at Blenheim Palace on 30-NOV-1874. His father was Lord Randolph Churchill and mother was Jennie Jerome from New York.The book goes into a little detail about his father and mother and there was one curious incident where Lord Randolph's brother, George Charles Marquess of Blandford, h [...]

    4. Top-notch. The chance to read Churchill's own letters was a real treat and served to illustrate the forceful personality and intelligence possessed by him from an almost shockingly young age. I'm very much looking forward to continuing this series of books.Commonplace entries:"When once I suggested that I might help his private secretary to write some of his letters, he [Winston's father] froze me into stone. I know now that this would have been only a passing phase. Had he lived another four or [...]

    5. I thoroughly enjoyed the format of this book; letters written by Winston and his close friends and family, with explanations and strategic gap-filling by the author. I was a bit skeptical that the author would be biased, being that he's Churchill's son, but I found him refreshingly candid. And, of course, you get gems like this: "He always described polo to his son as the 'emperor of games' and encouraged him to take it up. Extravagant though his son was he did not feel that the slender income w [...]

    6. Ambitious YouthWinston, like many a youth at a young age, just prodded along, not knowing what important role awaited him. But he was never satisfied with mediocrity. He eventually realized that only his best efforts would lead to momentous applause. After leaving school, he did all in his power to make a name for himself, a name that would stand out in everyone's mind. His service in the Queen's military led to many bold and dangerous episodes. As a war correspondent, his literary prowess got h [...]

    7. This took me a long time read on my kindle, however, I'm finally done. As a history buff and big fan of Winston Churchill, and having read many other books about him, this one was extremely slow going and detailed. I liked it, but it did not sustain my interest enough to get back to it and finish it timely. I am reading other books at the same time, so this was not an easy read. But, that said, I plan to move on to the next volume.

    8. A familiar subject described in detail and with companion volumes containing all the sources. But is is vast and requires a lot of time and energy if you are to maintain momentum right through to volume VII

    9. This book (and series) I snapped up when I saw for free for the kindle. Seems superbly researched, exhaustively, and as a result is exhausting.Needs a way to filter everything by topic and let us jump to the bits of interest - you can't just read through it, though I tried.

    10. Very worthwhile. The level of detail in this biography, made up mostly of Churchill's letters, is pretty great. It had its tedious stretches, but some really good stuff nonetheless. I'm lately a huge fan of collections of letters, though.

    11. An excellent biography of the great Prime Minister, written by his son Randolph and containing tons of letters by Churchill's parents and contemporaries.

    12. Astonishing life of WSC told in an illustrative way.I admire such a personality.Thanks to his son for bringing out such a life history.
