Book Review - The Margaret Thatcher Book Of Quotations
The Iron Lady's political career spanned five decades and her influence on world politics is undeniable. Margaret Thatcher is the most quoted British political leader since Winston Churchill. This unique collection of quotations are the most memorable and comprise a fitting tribute to an extraordinary life that sadly ended earlier this week. Some quotes are funny, many are inspirational, most are thoughtful—but they are all unforgettable. As well as Margaret Thatcher's own words, the book contains many quotes from her political allies and opponents, as well as from the foreign leaders to whom she invariably gave a good “handbagging”.

My Take on the Book
I grew up watching this powerful woman do amazing things in Great Britain from afar. I was always in awe of her poise and her ability to act as a role model for other women in society. This book is a wonderful collection of the things that she said in her life. Even though I grew up knowing her, after going through this book I can tell that I only knew a small amount of her life's work. If you too grew up knowing of this amazing woman and want to know her better, this collection of mostly her own words provides an insightful look into her life and the way in which she thinks that is unparalleled. I highly encourage all to read this!
