As a child in a council flat in Epping, Jack Straw never imagined he would one day hold three great offices of state. In this candid, self-deprecating and very readable memoir, he charts his progress from student politics to the international stage. Without rancour or self-justification, he reveals the toll that public office takes on private life, discusses the fateful decision to go to war in Iraq, and offers first-hand insights into the both the Blair government and the Bush administration.
