Tributes to Margaret Thatcher:
‘She fought against the clubby, cosy, male-dominated consensus of both main parties – and she won.’ Boris Johnson, Mayor of London
‘She will be remembered as a unique figure. She reshaped the politics of a whole generation. She was Britain's first woman prime minister. She moved the centre ground of British politics and was a huge figure on the world stage.’ Ed Miliband, Leader of the Labour Party
‘The world has lost one of the great champions of freedom and liberty, and America has lost a true friend. She stands as an example to our daughters that there is no glass ceiling that can't be shattered. She helped restore the confidence and pride that has always been the hallmark of Britain at its best.’ Barack Obama, President of the United States of America

She just forgot that ignoring the concerns of the electorate because you're too busy on a global agenda is asking for trouble.
She was as devisive as it gets, but if she'd been more attentive she could likely have gone on for as long as she wanted.
Proof found within the book!
Disappointing condition as it came with some pages bent and a few blemishes.
Mais do que ensinar que o verdadeiro feminismo consiste em mostrar a competência das mulheres, Margaret Thatcher mostra, em primeira pessoa e com extrema coragem, que grandes líderes são formados pela combinação de diversos fatores, não apenas carisma.
A escrita do livro é tão agradável e direta quanto os famosos discursos de Thatcher no parlamento britânico: sem rodeios, com fatos concretos e opiniões firmes, ela nos permite conhecer a visão de mundo de uma mulher que fez mais pelo feminismo do que todas as loucas do Femen jamais serão capazes.
The most important lesson Margaret Thatcher has to teach is the importance of being decisive in leadership. This is what makes her such a polarizing figure and in telling her own story,while she occasionally admits mistakes, she never expresses an apology. Even in her memoirs, the Lady is not for turning, and I think this book does an excellent job of capturing her character.
Anyone interested in transformative political figures needs to read this book.
