He writes as he lives, at full pelt. World of Alastair Campbell, former politician strategist. The Alastair Campbell Diaries Vol 2: Power and the People by Alastair Campbell. The Alastair Campbell Diaries: Volume 1, Prelude to Power: The most remarkable feature of the Blair-Brown relationship is how repetitive it is. Brown at least is consistent: Blair, on the other hand, seems locked in an interminable cycle of feelings about his Chancellor, rival and foe. It goes as follows: Again and again and again, all the way through, the same pattern of frustration, resolution and climb-down.
As a matter of fact, the book is repetitive in general. Robin Cook and Clare Short are always on the brink of resigning. Blair is always confiding to Campbell that he only ever wanted to fight two elections, but that he might yet be forced, for the good of the country, to fight a third. He almost always agrees, but takes nearly pages to get around to it.
God knows how he withstood all this repetitiveness for so long. There are some exquisitely weird titbits about Blair. It was the most difficult decision of Tony Blair's premiership, and almost certainly the most unpopular.

Campbell describes in detail the discussions with President Bush and other world leaders as the steps to war are taken, and delivers a unique account of Blair as war leader. He records the enormous political difficulties at home, and the sense of crisis that engulfed the government after the suicide of weapons inspector David Kelly. And all the while, Blair continues to struggle with two issues that ran throughout his time in government - fighting for peace in Northern Ireland, and trying to make peace with Gordon Brown.
And Campbell continues to struggle balancing the needs of his family with one of the most pressurised roles in politics. Riveting and revelatory, The Burden of Power is as raw and intimate a portrayal of political life as you are ever likely to read.
