Editorial Reviews

Review


“ Based on the authors’ unique vantage point, Margaret Thatcher on Leadership
provides a fascinating account of how this outstanding prime minister demonstrated that conservative ideas work. The book, which describes how she and
Ronald Reagan worked together to change the course of history, offers a valuable
example for future leaders of both Britain and the United States.”
—Hon. Edwin Meese III, former attorney general of the United States

“Do not despair. There is no irreversible ‘tipping point’ into American decline, not even Obama’s presidency. Margaret Thatcher on Leadership distills the critical lessons from Lady Thatcher’s inspiring political accomplishments and applies them persuasively to America today.”
—Hon. John R. Bolton, former U.S. Permanent
representative to the United Nations

“Margaret Thatcher loved America and always kept our best interests in mind.
That’s why the lessons of her strong, decisive leadership are so critical in restoring conservative government here after an era of hyper-liberalism.”
—Fred Barnes, executive editor, Weekly Standard

“Margaret Thatcher on Leadership is a powerful and timely book calling on American conservatives to defend the cause of freedom. The Iron Lady’s example is an inspiration to us all, on both sides of the Atlantic, as the West faces mounting challenges at home and abroad.”
—Rt. Hon. Liam Fox, MP, former defence secretary of the United Kingdom

Well-written and entertaining, Gardiner's and Thompson's book reminds me why Margaret Thatcher was such an effective and consequential world leader. This welcome reminder, and the lessons therein, should be required reading by today's political leaders. But even if you don't happen to fall into that category, I'd urge you to read and enjoy this book!

Niles and Thompson's first hand experiences and deep economic study during Britain's near-fatal miring in the quicksand of the Labour Party's socio-economic blundering Post WWII equipped them to ask ALL the right questions of PM Thatcher.
The result: the most complete and transparent compendium of Lady Thatcher's leadership principles. Without the employment of those priceless principles by PM Thatcher & the Conservative Party, Great Britain was bankrupt TOAST !!
Would-be American political leaders need to immediately digest this book, and hold it close to hearts and minds as a roadmap OUT of the economic morass created by the growth of SOCIALISM in the USA in the past 3/4 of a century.
No better map will ever be available, and it's conveniently available just in the nick of time !!! Grab it ! Digest it ! Live it, serious Conservative leaders !

There comes those very rare occasions when individuals share timely works that have the insight and potential to impact current issues. Gardiner and Thompson have accomplished just such an occasion. They have produced a must read for our future leaders and all who have a vested interest in solutions, not more crises.

An excellent synopsis of the lessons that can (and should ) be learned from the experience of one of the great political leaders of our time.

I bookmarked every page summarizing the leadership skills with which Margaret Thatcher saved Great Britain from spiraling into the morass and chaos of socialism, and with Ronald Reagan began the process of assigning communism to the "trash heap" of history.

Pray that such a leader soon surfaces in the United States.

This book provides substantial new information about Mrs. Thatcher and her career. Very readable. If she could turn around Britain in the 70s it gives me hope that we can turn around the USA today. This book should be required reading for every member of Congress and every U.S. president.

This book is outstanding. If you admire Prime Minister Thatcher, you will certainly want this book. It is about liberty and freedom.
In this day and time it is hard to find people in leadership who will stand by their convictions.

She exemplified courageous leadership, with her strong belief in religious values, which inspired others. She was a Leader, not a Follower. Her conservative policies on the economy and international relations are lessons to be learned by the US . In 1979 the UK was in great decline as we in US are now. We need a Thatcher today. The World at large is crying for strong leaders like Thatcher and Reagan. This book should be mandatory reading for every member of Congress!!!!

Wonderful book about a wonderful person. Great insight was provided about one of the most important and influential people on this globe in my lifetime. If we had more people like Mrs. Thatcher this world would be a better place.
