Benjamin Disraeli is one of the most fascinating men of the 19th century. A superb politician, orator, writer and wit, he was the most gifted parliamentarian of his time, who rose to become Prime Minister - twice. Yet Disraeli had never intended to be a politician: his early life was led in pursuit of pleasure as he struggled to find an occupation that would best suit his energy, keen intelligence, wit and insatiable appetite for public attention. Bringing together the personal and political, Douglas Hurd and Edward Young provide a definitive account of an exceptional life.

A good read. Fair and not over done, it gives you a good impression of Disraeli's life. My only quibble is that starting the book with Dizzy's funeral might not grab the passing reader (which this book is aimed at) rather than the more serious reader.
