“I have tried, in each part of the quarter-century in which this tale lies, to show the point of view appropriate to my years, whether as a child, a schoolboy, a cadet, a subaltern, a war-correspondent, or a youthful politician.... When I survey this work as a whole I find I have drawn a picture of a vanished age.”

An entertaining intro to a great man
Winston Churchill was, in addition to being one of the greatest men of Western history, a terrific writer. I was entertained as well as informed by his story, which teaches not only about his life, but about human nature. Frederick Davidson is, hands down, my favorite narrator. He brings every story to life.

Excellent history and entertainment
Would you listen to My Early Life again? Why?
Yes, I can well imagine going back to this. Churchill writes a rich combination of history, journal, reminiscence and sheer entertainment.
What does Frederick Davidson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Frederick Davidson brings a very dry-wit style of reading, with a steady unhurried delivery and excellent pronounciation.
Any additional comments?
This would be a great story of anyone's life. Being the story of such a pivotal figure of history makes it so much more meaningful. His early life sets the pattern for WWII; determination, personal courage, a keen eye for political meanings and personalities, and an empathy for all he meets.
