Alastair Campbell was born in Keighley, Yorkshire in 1957, the son of a vet. Having graduated from Cambridge University in modern languages, he went into journalism, principally with the Mirror Group. When Tony Blair became leader of the Labour Party, Campbell worked for him first as press secretary, then as official spokesman and director of communications and strategy from 1994 to 2003. He continued to act as an advisor to Mr. Blair and the Labour Party, including during subsequent election campaigns. He now splits his time between writing, speaking, consultancy, and politics in Britain and overseas. He is also chairman of fundraising for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research and a leading ambassador for the mental health campaign Time to Change. He lives in north London with his partner of thirty-five years, Fiona Millar. They have three children. His interests include running, cycling, bagpipes, and Burnley Football Club. He has published six volumes of diaries, including the Sunday Times number one bestseller The Blair Years; a memoir on depression, The Happy Depressive; and three novels.Review:
“Great winners have taught Campbell an important lesson: 'You can always do better.' Excellent book.”

- USA Today
“Enlightening. Campbell’s informative and entertaining book offers a treasure trove of insights that are sure to increase the reader’s odds of achieving success.”

“Surely a valuable source for scholars to scour for many years to come. One of the most compelling reads of history in the raw. A behind-the-scenes look at dramatic junctures in recent history.”
- The Los Angeles Times [praise for 'The Blair Years']
“Beyond question the most important and revelatory book written so far about the inner workings of Blair’s government. By turns brilliant, combative, demotic and emotional.”
- The Washington Post [praise for 'The Blair Years']
“A fascinating front row seat.”
- Tina Brown, author of 'The Diana Chronicles' [praise for 'The Blair Years']
