Review:

As an English-language account of the Pope's Argentine heritage, this book will be hard to beat. * Catholic Herald * Shows why Pope Francis is not a silly old commie. The author's insights into his Argentine background and hard spiritual road make sense of his rejection of the trappings of power and intellectual elitism. * Spectator, Best Books of 2015 * Will be useful in understanding the actions of a man whose influence and international importance cannot but grow. * Observer * Who is this larger-than-life man leading the charge? What are Francis's origins, how did he come to his beliefs and where is he taking his church? The Great Reformer, a new biography of the man born Jorge Mario Bergoglio, offers an illuminating guide. * Washington Post * The author has a deft way of mixing recent incidents with his subject's early life... [The pope's] idiosyncratic humanism, forged in a land of political and economic turmoil, seems infectious. This book explains where it comes from. * The Economist * A must-read for all Pope Francis watchers. * The Tablet * A fast-moving and colourful personal analysis of what drives the pontiff, and the many events that have formed his unique and gregarious personality. * The Universe * A fine new biography... Fair, judicious and compelling. * The New York Times * The most substantial biography by far * The Times * A gracefully written and meticulously researched account of Francis' life... the best English-language biography of the pope to date. * New York Times Book Review * Invaluable... ought to be read by everyone who wishes to know more about this very singular Pope. * Irish Independent * Invaluable new biography * Daily Telegraph * Richly researched, artfully constructed and consistently compelling. * TLS *
