Given Janan Ganesh’s status as a Financial Times political columnist and his choice of subject matter, it was inevitable that George Osborne: The Austerity Chancellor would attract attention. Timothy Heppell finds the book illuminating when it comes to understanding the professional career of George Osborne prior to his sudden emergence as a strikingly youthful Shadow Chancellor. However he cautions that many might find the book frustrating, because of both the author’s undisguised admiration for the Chancellor and how little attention he devotes to Osborne’s time in government.
