A fascinating book, albeit one that is frustrating at times. There are many great insights into the role of Speaker, for example the process of choosing MPs to speak, the considerations over granting Urgent Questions and the scope of rulings under Standing Orders. However, the tone of the book is often one of bitterness, as Bercow seeks to settle scores that he could not whilst in the chair.
