Enjoy reading the book. His way of presenting is certainly that of a diplomat. How can one be so opinionated about Russia and, in particular, Putin that "... we knew that Putin was lying. He knew that we knew he was lying. He did not give a damn ......"

Not quite the diplomat. But also not quite undiplomatic, not quite in-your-face, and not quite revealing - and therefore not quite up to my expectation.

Quite a difficult book for readers not from UK or Europe.
A passionate politican wrote like a historian. He is the one who doesn't show any resistance, skeptism or suspicion about China's development. For me, he isn't pro or anti anything about China, but a British who faces it as it is. I can't find anyone who believes and advocates so much about the way to deal with China is to involve her into the global arena politically and economically.
Apart from it, the bitterness of describing his encountering with several European leaders (or ex-leaders now) is quite another story.
