    One thought on “Churchill Style: The Art of Being Winston Churchill”

    1. It would be easy to dismiss Barry Singer’s Churchill Style as a fun, breezy read on Churchill, serving as mostly soft porn for voyeurs interested in the superficial aspects of the Churchill story. Such an impulse, however, would be wrong. That’s not because it’s not fun, nor easy to read. Indeed it’s both. Churchill Style, however, is a vital addition to any true Churchillian’s library because it provides a new dimension to understanding the actions of the man who did more to shape the [...]

    2. I have read quite a few biographies on Sir Winston Churchill. I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one.This biographical summary of Sir Winston engages the reader so that they are propelled through his life story all the while being provided with sporadic anecdotes on his various personal effects, habits and customs. It is very well done. In this way, one really gets to see Sir Winston in a different light - where he comes across as more human but no less mythic. The photos througho [...]

    3. I have read every book about or by Churchill I can get my hands on. I have a ceiling to floor bookcase full of books by or about Churchill. I started this collection in my early teens. Now I am gathering a collection of e-books. Needless to say I know most of the information in this book, “Churchill Style: The Art of Being Winston Churchill” by Barry Singer. Barry Singer is the owner of Chartwell Books in New York City, a bookstore famous for its focus on the works of Winston Churchill. Sing [...]

    4. Before we write a word about Barry Singers book, it is necessary to comment on the artistry of the book itself. Made from some material that feels much like leather Abrams Books and Singer have created a book that is a work of art. The paper is beautiful-akin to the finest of photography books. The typography is lovely and appropriate to the subject matter, and is done in color as well as shades, depending on the authors needs. Layout is gorgeous. There is a beautiful metallic like set of pages [...]

    5. What a wonderful book! I must confess from the outset that I have a significant collection of Churchill books. However, this definitely fills a void that exists in understanding some of the more quirky and personal aspects of Churchill's character. Beautifully illustrated, and logically laid out, this is a great book not just to read from cover to cover, but to revisit and dip into different periods in Churchill's life.The most enjoyable aspect of the book is the authors use of little-known, or [...]

    6. There are thousands of books on Churchill and this one focuses on the 'style' aspect of his life. Churchill liked nice things and lived a life of luxury and because he's so important, this was heavily documented. Having an almost scholarly familiarity with Churchill's life, I was a little disappointed at how much background information the author chose to include. It's essentially a cliff-noted biography of Churchill's entire life. The most interesting aspect of the book are the various asides w [...]

    7. Marvelous insight into one of the most interesting characters of the 20th century as well as a personal hero of mine. Mr. Churchill was one of a kind and while his Second World War triumphs are relatively well known today, his failures and failings are overshadowed while his early life success seems to have been forgotten. This is unfortunate because his early life success as well as his failings are what made him into what he was and gave him the fortitude and strategies that made him the indis [...]

    8. This is a difficult book for me to rate given that I am an aficionada of all things Churchillian. I loved the little snippets on Churchill's lifestyle; his throw-away opinions on art, culture, literature. I disagree entirely that this is a "first" incident of revelation on Churchill's lifestyle. There are volumes and volumes from which one could gather the most interesting minutiae. What Singer has done is turn Churchill's life into a handy little pocket book for the lazy Churchill fan, and nice [...]

    9. Of all the major political figures of the 20th Century, Winston Churchill certainly lived life to the fullest. A master of the English language, prolific author and lover of cigars and fine brandy, Churchill relished the political and intellectual world as few others did. Barry Singer’s book offers an insightful and altogether charming portrait of the private man behind the public image.Mike O. / Marathon County Public LibraryFind this book in our library catalog.

    10. This is not a look at Winston Churchill's place in history, but an outline in brief of Winston Churchill the man - his habits, tastes, fashion, preferences, relationships. He was always larger than life, and had to really wait for the times to catch up to him and make room for his spot in history. He did not bend to accomodate others. He was his charming, witty, appealing, shocking, inflexible self at all times - and this book illustrates beautifully that this is the reason he was perfectly the [...]

    11. This is a great little book providing exactly what you might think: a comprehensive look at the way Churchill lived, dressed, ate, slept, painted, napped and.d the world. It also includes just enough biographical data for those who might not be familiar with the details of his life. This is not the book for history buffs, others including William Manchester and Martin Gilbert have covered that vey nicely thanks.This is a good book for men of style whether or not they are Churchill fans or not. H [...]

    12. Aconcise timeline of history, with all the blanks filled in on what kind of man Churchill was. He was so intelligent, marched to a different drum from his youth, and was a tender sensitive person. He loved learning to do lots of different things himself, from laying bricks to becoming an artist! He never worried about what people thought of him, but always and only spoke the truth as he saw it.

    13. An interesting look at Churchill's consumerism in all phases of his life. A good read if you are into the finer things, especially those considered finer back in the day. Also a good read if you are a Churchill-phile.

    14. Un muy interesante punto de vista de la vida de Churchill. No como estratega, escritor o político sino como humano. Explicando detalladamente sus gustos por la comida y bebida, sus hobbies, autos, moda y estilo, todo basado en cartas y notas escritas por el y sus allegados.

    15. Loved this beautiful book. It's really a brief but wonderful biography with tons of photos and scores of entertaining asides.

    16. A different type of biography, focused on the man and how he lived. Well written and thoroughly enjoyable
