    " "Churchill", by Paul Johnson< is a fabulous, short biography of Winston Churchill. So much has been written about Winston Churchill that it is always hard to imagine why anyone needs to write another book about him. I have often been hesitant to start one of the lengthy, in depth biographies about him because it seems as if I'd need months to complete it. And I know I would want to complete it, because Churchill is one of my favorite people. I find him truly astonishing in so many ways -- especially in the wide variety of pursuits he managed to tackle with a high level of quality and commitment (as a politician, soldier, writer and historian, painter, husband and father). Paul Johnson has written a lively, entertaining and accessible portrait of Churchill. One reviewer described it by saying that Johnson has written a book that allows us to spend some time in the company of Churchill, and it is really true. It would be hard to find a better biography with which to spend a few afternoons or evenings and it will leave you inspired and awed. "

    " Accurate, informative and well written. Churchill is to modern history as Aristotle to Ancient Philosophy. "

    " Thought it was time to read about the man who inspired so many in my parents' and grandparents' generations. Churchill had an interesting life, and I enjoyed reading about his challenges and triumphs. This book inspired me to read more of his speaches and writings because while his life was interesting, whenever his speaches were quoted, I could really feel the passion he had for people. "

    " Churchill was one of two great men in the 20th century who was on the good side of bad events. Like Zelig, he always was seen in the center of them (the Depression, World War II). This biography is an entertaining but not very deep retelling of Churchill's life and times. "
