This collection of short essays about various contempories of Winston Churchill is always worth reading, and this edition has five more! The essay on Rudyard Kipling is worth the price of admissioin.

As a commentator notes, it is our good fortune that someone who was a major part of the making of 20th century history was also a gifted writer. This book is a jewel, with Churchill's insights on major figures viewed from his unique inside vantage point. The prose is a bit flowery and at times even Shakespearean, but still manages to be conversational. He weaves in literary references that set the tone on a classical and historic plane, sharing his stellar educational background and knowledge. In all, it is uniquely Churchillian. The piece on Kitchener is especially moving, as Churchill delves into the ironies of their relationship and its evolution over the years. This is a book to be kept close as one of the greats, and a deeply satisfying read.
