During the 1930's, Churchill was an MP but not a cabinet member. He studied the world scene carefully through his many contacts, both in and out of official duty. Since Churchill was never in any way responsible for the atrocious British policy of appeasement and non-support to allies, he was the right man to form a government in 1940 and lead the war effort.
In this 700 page tome we learn how Churchill dealt with his hand. He found ways to provide input to PM's and other leaders through letters and dinner conversations. When no one took his advice, he never questioned himself or his judgment, but instead waited for the next day. Churchill certainly understood work life balance. If he was not in the government, he could watch the world scene and write letters from the south of France while painting and dining.
Churchill also gives us lots of management and leadership advice here. He never accepts any task unless the role and expectations are clear and he has the support to make it a success. He understands the value of developing a strong network that he draws on later. He also relishes his naps, realizing that even during war time, one can work all night if a good late afternoon nap is taken.
