Reading about The People's Princess
I have read, except for periodicals, every book about Princess Diana. This book, at first glance, seemed to be from a disgruntled ex employee who did not care for the way he left his position as Princess Diana's equerry (personal secretary). As I kept reading, I realized that what I thought at first were cheap shots against a Princess not alive to defend herself, were really just the dry, humorous musings of a very intelligent individual who, as it turned out, really cared for Princess Diana. It is a well written book, a great book for someone who wants to know what it takes behind the scenes to keep the royal machine running smoothly. The ending at once broke my heart then brought a simple sort of joy and peace to me for a life that ended for all of us, much too soon.
Another look at the Princess
I suppose the people closest to Princess Diana can give their honest opinion, what I find most interesting is how different those views can be, for instance, the butler, Paul Burrell gives a loving account of how sincere, thoughtful, kind the Princess was and yet her private secretary, Patrick Jephson has a whole 'nother view on how the Princess manipulated the media to show herself as kind and sincere. Still Patrick did point out that the type of nurturing kindness the Princess projected couldn't all be effected, it had to be real somewhere. If you are a Princess Diana fan, you will want to get this book to get the whole picture. Things are never really as they seem.
Can't put this one down!
This is a well-written and very interesting firsthand account of life with Princess Diana, which makes it different from all of the other books I have read about her. It is hard to put this book down! It's a fascinating look into the life of the British royals.

This book was clearly written by someone Princess Diana never shared anything personal with. It so pales in comparison the the fantastic Diana Chronicles by Tina Brown who obviously had excellent access to personal info. This mans book was about as boring and wooden as a book could get. Just awful, and it also shows just cause you knew her does not make you a good writer. I am so glad i did not spend much on this book.
