2790 The Path to Power, by Margaret Thatcher (read 11 Oct 1995) This tells of the author's fascinating life from birth (on 13 Oct 1925 "over the shop" at Grantham, Lincolnshire), till the present, skipping the period 1979-1990 covered by her earlier book, The Downing Street Years. This book is well-done and convincing. She certainly makes a good case for her economic views, and her survey of the world in the last chapters is encouraging. ( )
