The Little Book of Boris is an entertaining collection of over 170 quotes from the man who once said he was more likely to 'be reincarnated as an olive' than become prime minister. With his colourful wit, esoteric vocabulary (he once claimed he could recite 100 lines of Homer in ancient Greek) and bombastic bluster, Boris has long spun gold from his tongue. He is a man who has always divided opinion, even amongst his own party: some see him as a loveable buffoon who is prone to gaffes while others view him as a cunning, self-serving strategist. Either way, the sheer audacity of Boris's verbal antics has always been one of his hallmarks, giving him celebrity appeal. Beautifully presented, The Little Book of Boris is a riotous ride through the wit, the wisdom and let's face it, the nuttiness that has marked Boris's time in the public eye.
'My speaking style was criticised by no less an authority than Arnold Schwarzenegger. It was a low moment, my friends, to have my rhetorical skills denounced by a monosyllabic Austrian cyborg.'
- Boris Johnson
