I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in personal aspects of David Lange’s life- his youth, family, marriages and health issues. He gives a very comprehensive account of his life as a person, not a politician.
To be honest I had expected some more personal insight into the policies he had initiated during his term as prime minister. In this book he mentioned the most significant policies he had approved as a prime minister, including his controversial decision to break the ANZUS treaty, but declined to elaborate further on these matters. That slightly irked me. But otherwise it was a pleasant autobiography to read, not particularly remarkable in any way.
